Are DACA Recipients Stealing Jobs Away from Other Americans?
National Public Radio

"The simple point — which is true for them [DACA recipients] but even more for them and all immigrants — if they were not there, the American economy would be 800 [thousand] young people smaller," Peri said. "And the skills and productivity that they brought to the economy wouldn't be here. Population creates its own jobs in some sense.”

What Parts of the Workforce Might Be Safe from Robots?
NPR’s All Things Considered

“There are three big categories that machines are really bad at. They've made tremendous advances, but they're bad at first off doing creative work. Whether you're an entrepreneur or a scientist or a novelist, I think you're in pretty good shape doing that long-range creativity. The second big category is interpersonal skills and emotional intelligence, people who are coaches or salespeople or negotiators or caregivers. And the third one is actually manual dexterity and physical mobility. Machines have a hard time doing simple things like picking up a nickel or walking up stairs or clearing a table.”
