During the Great Recession immigrants lost more employment, relative to their initial employment level, than US-born workers. During the recovery immigrants gained more employment than US-born workers. The employment gains of immigrants during the recovery spread among all educational groups except those with no high school diploma. Among US-born workers, only those with Bachelor's degree or more gained employment. By mid-2012, the employment of both immigrants and US-born workers were still below the pre-recession level.
