Immigrant women adapting, are as likely to work as U.S. women

Peggy O'Crowley and Carrie Stetler of The (Newark) Star-Ledger, with assistance from Robert Gebeloff, used Census data to show that "immigrant women, who comprise one of four mothers in New Jersey, are less likely to work outside the home — at least when they first arrive. After 10 years, though, they are as apt to hold jobs as native-born women." The rates varied for different ethnicities, although some immigrants who traditionally stayed at home in their homelands do work in New Jersey.
