The article presents information on the need for ethical hiring of immigrants in the U.S. metal industry. According to economist Pia Orrenius of the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas despite the influx of thousands of newcomers each year, the strong U.S. economy has been able to absorb them and put them to work. Concerns that cheap foreign workers will dampen wage rates for Americans appear largely unfounded. Most jobs in metal production and processing tend to require greater skills and training, and thus individuals with a better educational background. As an employer, one has an opportunity to be part of the solution rather than part of the problem, and show some leadership by adhering to ethical hiring practices of hiring immigrant workers.
