Korea Daily, Posted: Nov 13, 2008

LOS ANGELES Legal immigrants with a college degree are facing difficulties getting a job in the United States, reports the Korean-language Korea Daily in Los Angeles. In California alone there are more than 310,000 unemployed college-educated immigrants. According to the Migration Information Source (MPI), one out of five immigrants with a college diploma in Washington, D.C. was unemployed or working in a temporary job, such as a dish washer or parking lot attendant. The report indicates that 1.3 million immigrants with two or more years of college are currently unemployed or have a temporary job. A lack of English language skills and racial discrimination were cited as some of the factors behind the high numbers.
