A record-setting 52,209,000 women are currently not in the labor force.

However, despite this statistic, foreign-born women seem to be doing quite well for themselves, at least compared to U.S.-born women, when it comes to employment gains. In fact, since 2007, all of the employment gains for women came from foreigners.

According to a report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, U.S- born women saw a loss of 64,000 jobs since the recession hit in late 2007. During this period of time, foreign-born women experienced the opposite, gaining nearly 1 million jobs in the United States.

The Washington Examiner reports:

The charts show that 9.041 million foreign-born women held jobs in December of 2007 compared to 10.028 million today – or a gain of roughly 1 million jobs.

In contrast, 59.322 million U.S.-born women held jobs in December of 2007 compared to 59.258 million today – or a loss of nearly 64,000 jobs.

Overall, nearly 25 million foreign workers, men and women, hold jobs inside the United States, according to a Senate immigration expert.

The shocking female jobs statistic comes as the U.S. provides some 1 million green cards to new permanent immigrants, along with 700,000 foreign workers visas, and accepts 70,000 refugees and asylum-seekers, and half a million foreign students.
