There is a common misconception when it comes to the American blue collar worker. That is, we won’t do jobs that are labor intensive.
I have heard the argument that illegal aliens are here doing the work that Americans won’t do. However, I have never heard any of the proponents of illegal immigration finish the sentence.
The sentence should should read “Illegal immigrants are here doing the work Americans won’t do for five dollars an hour.”
Because that the case. Trust me when I say this. I have seen entire industries ruined by illegal immigration.
The construction industry is a fine example. I used to be able to make a living wage pulling wire and swinging a hammer. Today there are people doing electrical work for ten dollars an hour.
The only people that benefit from illegal immigration are American corporations that hire these people and pay them peanuts to do work that a more qualified American worker would be paid a living wage for.
If you think for one minute that there are not people in America today that would not give up their search for a cushy office job and get a job doing manual labor to make ends meet, you are as stupid as our fearless leader.
Unemployment is on the rise again my friends. People are lining up looking for jobs.
How many Americans could be working today if there were not thirty million illegal aliens here taking those jobs?
If you have teenagers, forget about it. Here in California, virtually every entry level position is filled by illegal aliens or the children of illegal aliens.
I go to a fast food joint to order food and the person working the drive up window barely speaks English and is nearly impossible to understand.
My sixteen year old has applied at every fast food place in town. They won’t hire her.
You know why? Because all of them employ three or four legal workers and ten illegals that they pay under the table.
Don’t believe me? Read this WSJ article about Chipotle Grill. After Chipotle was exposed as a major employer of illegal aliens, their stock went up! Through the roof as a matter of fact.
Why? Because they make a huge profit by keeping labor costs down. Wall Street understands this. Investors understand this. How does this help me as an American worker and consumer?
It doesn’t help me at all. Have you been to Chipotle Grill lately? Its some of the most expensive fast food out there and almost all of their employees barely speak a lick of English.
So lets review. Our kids can’t find work. Adults can’t find work. Unemployment is on the rise, yet President Obama wants to grant Amnesty to the very scofflaws that are here taking jobs from Americans.
Go figure. JD
