On average, unemployment rates among foreign-born people in the OECD are higher than those among the native-born population. Sectors such as construction and services, which offer lots of job opportunities to migrants, were hit hard in countries like Greece and Spain. But many places are creating jobs for non-natives again. The employment rate of migrants in the OECD increased by 1.3 percentage points in 2011-14, faster than the rise for native-born workers. In America, the foreign-born unemployment rate, particularly among migrant males and those with low education levels, was lower in 2014 than that for the native-born, thanks to a boom in areas like construction and natural resources.
