Immigrant Workers in MN

Immigrant Workers in Minnesota Bruce P. Corrie, PhD As we remember the contributions of immigrant workers in Minnesota on May 1, the data (Census 2000 EEO data) below provides percentages of Asian and Hispanic workers in occupational categories where Asian and Hispanic/Latino workers make up at least 5 percent of the workforces. Most Asian and Hispanic/Latino workers are foreign born. The data indicates strong presence of these workers in both the high skilled as well as low skilled occupations in Minnesota. For other data and updates on the immigration debate please see my blog: Occupation Category Percent Asian/Hispanic Total Civilian Labor Force (Asian and Hispanic Workers) 4.62 Miscellaneous Personal Appearance Workers 33.58 Miscellaneous Media and Communication Workers 32.20 Health Diagnosing and Treating Practitioners, All Other 30.53 Butchers and Other Meat, Poultry, and Fish Processing Workers 28.73 Medical Scientists 28.16 Derrick, Rotary Drill, and Service Unit Operators, and Roustabouts, Oil, Gas, and Mining 26.67 Food Cooking Machine Operators and Tenders 25.71 Other Metalworkers and Plastic Workers, Including Milling, Planing, and Multiple Machine Tool Operators 20.34 Physical Scientists, All Other 20.17 Astronomers and Physicists 19.44 Fence Erectors 18.97 Electrical, Electronics, and Electromechanical Assemblers 18.25 Roofers 17.58 Miscellaneous Assemblers and Fabricators 16.67 Dishwashers 16.62 Food Batchmakers 15.25 Cooks 14.49 Graders and Sorters, Agricultural Products 13.27 Computer Software Engineers 13.23 Chemical Engineers 12.82 Food and Tobacco Roasting, Baking, and Drying Machine Operators and Tenders 12.66 Chefs and Head Cooks 12.32 Food Preparation Workers 11.90 Office Machine Operators, Except Computer 11.72 Dining Room and Cafeteria Attendants, Bartender Helpers, and Miscellaneous Food Preparation and Serving Related Workers 11.46 Bakers 10.80 Rolling Machine Setters, Operators, and Tenders, Metal and Plastic 10.74 Physicians and Surgeons 10.47 Maids and Housekeeping Cleaners 10.22 Postsecondary Teachers 10.21 Engine and Other Machine Assemblers 10.17 Computer Programmers 9.62 Cargo and Freight Agents 9.50 Grinding, Lapping, Polishing, and Buffing Machine Tool Setters, Operators, and Tenders, Metal and Plastic 9.36 Gaming Services Workers 8.96 Dancers and Choreographers 8.92 Biological Technicians 8.82 Computer Scientists and Systems Analysts 8.68 Structural Metal Fabricators and Fitters 8.54 Lathe and Turning Machine Tool Setters, Operators, and Tenders, Metal and Plastic 8.51 Economists 8.44 Personal Care and Service Workers, All Other 8.40 Computer Hardware Engineers 8.38 Database Administrators 8.30 Plating and Coating Machine Setters, Operators, and Tenders, Metal and Plastic 8.09 Mail Clerks and Mail Machine Operators, Except Postal Service 7.93 Financial Analysts 7.89 Fishing and Hunting Workers 7.74 Food Service Managers 7.67 Janitors and Building Cleaners 7.54 Geological and Petroleum Technicians 7.41 Archivists, Curators, and Museum Technicians 7.29 Lay-Out Workers, Metal and Plastic 7.27 Electrical and Electronics Repairers, Industrial, Utility, and Transportation Equipment 7.14 Miscellaneous Agricultural Workers, Including Animal Breeders 7.13 Precision Instrument and Equipment Repairers 7.05 Miscellaneous Engineers, Including Agricultural and Biomedical 6.92 First-Line Supervisors/Managers of Housekeeping and Janitorial Workers 6.90 Cutting, Punching, and Press Machine Setters, Operators, and Tenders, Metal and Plastic 6.82 Agents and Business Managers of Artists, Performers, and Athletes 6.80 Other Business Operations Specialists 6.78 Miscellaneous Life, Physical, and Social Science Technicians, Including Social Science Research Assistants and Nuclear Technicians 6.65 Weighers, Measurers, Checkers, and Samplers, Recordkeeping 6.56 Lodging Managers 6.50 Information and Record Clerks, All Other 6.46 Grounds Maintenance Workers 6.40 Market and Survey Researchers 6.40 Locksmiths and Safe Repairers 6.25 Physician Assistants 6.16 Dentists 6.15 Cashiers 6.03 Counter Attendants, Cafeteria, Food Concession, and Coffee Shop 6.02 Shipping, Receiving, and Traffic Clerks 5.96 Glaziers 5.92 Painters, Construction and Maintenance 5.91 Combined Food Preparation and Serving Workers, Including Fast Food 5.91 Hosts and Hostesses, Restaurant, Lounge, and Coffee Shop 5.84 Computer, Automated Teller, and Office Machine Repairers 5.77 Tool Grinders, Filers, and Sharpeners 5.76 Machinists 5.70 Agricultural and Food Scientists 5.70 Postal Service Mail Sorters, Processors, and Processing Machine Operators 5.70 Electrical and Electronics Engineers 5.64 Molders and Molding Machine Setters, Operators, and Tenders, Metal and Plastic 5.64 Waiters and Waitresses 5.62 Telemarketers 5.59 Financial Specialists, All Other 5.58 Network Systems and Data Communications Analysts 5.52 First-Line Supervisors/Managers of Personal Service Workers 5.45 Chemical Technicians 5.35 Natural Sciences Managers 5.27 First-Line Supervisors/Managers of Food Preparation and Serving Workers 5.22 Counter and Rental Clerks 5.18 Biological Scientists 5.15 Food Servers, Nonrestaurant 5.08 Industrial Engineers, Including Health and Safety 5.08 Network and Computer Systems Administrators 5.05 Welding, Soldering, and Brazing Workers 5.05 Athletes, Coaches, Umpires, and Related Workers 5.01 Helpers, Construction Trades 4.96
