Lazy Americans? The open borders crowd gleefully tell us how much immigrants inject energy into an otherwise lazy America. Well, I looked at data from the California Workforce Survey to see who does the most overtime. Respondents (N=868) were asked how often they worked more than 40 hours a week. Here are the percentages who said "usually" by racial/ethnic group:
Percent who usually work overtime
American-born Hispanic 24.2
Immigrant Hispanic 26.2
Those fat, lazy white people might be fat, but they ain't lazy.
