why do you want American's to make less money so people from other countries can retire?


Why are you making things up. I am woodworker and life long carpenter.



He's not making anything up. Maybe a tough pill for you to swallow but they've killed skilled trade wages. There may be some states that haven't been effected as much as others, yes, but you have to be on another planet or making chit up if you haven't seen this because it's fact. I've worked my trade in CA. and Co. so don't try and tell me it's not issue.

They didn't do anything. The employers and government republicans and Democrats did that.

Hence make a visa program for labor shortages.

Illegals didn't do sht. Their employers did.

Ps commercial sites require proof...even in Texas. Unless you are talking about some pipe fitters labor it's a totally different deal.

It's not the illegals not paying it's their employers.

The illegals pay their sales taxes and never get reimbursed. They own millions of homes as well.

The employers don't pay into the system.


Not true. I've been in this business going on 40 yrs and seen every loophole in the book.

And who the hell gets reimbursed for sales tax? Sales tax is exactly what it says.

stop lying, it's business you have to be willing to compete it's just like sports

if 1 person is willing to cheat and hire illegal labor they can out bid you and take all the jobs that means you have to do it as well, it's not our fault that you don't know how the economy works and why the value of our currency puts us at a disadvantage competitively with 3rd world nations

go read a book on economics

BS. Loom up the average. The owners may or owner operators.

And no they are not here as much as everywhere. Get a clue and at least use some actual figures.

I have a minor.

If they aren't hired they aren't working buddy. It's not real hard.

They have been allowed to work by politiciams.of both sides who are paid off. The employers hired them.

Verify employment
Create visas. Kick out the illegals.

It's real.simple.

Wonder why that isn't the focus.

Who yours which makes no logical sense.

Look up the real numbers fella there aren't enough carpenters. Now that illegals are being shut down prices are increasing and real labor shortages are happening.

Pretty simple solutions. But they don't want those. They keep your narrative useful so the problem never gets solved.

Good, I hope it does slow down and labor is in demand. Wages would start to go back up to where they should be instead of the current slave wages. Are you just not getting this or what?

Well you are talking to one. I already explained that problem.

The illegals didn't create that problem. The employers and politicians did by never addressing it.

Let's take Texas.. Republican to the core. They did nothing to stop this.

Why money..the state was booming didn't want to alow growth to deal with the labor voids....

Instead of working to create trades and skilled training programs they allowed floods of illegal labor.

It's not rocket science. The illegals didn't come and forcibly male people hire them. Greed allowed it and politicians use the left and right to maintain false narratives. So you fight amongst yourselves.

I am a libertarian so I have no problem with immigrants. But they should be legal through temporary visas.

But people like you pretend they aren't necessary that Americans will simply appear and do the work even when they don't and that becomes reality.

I get it fine. I also.underarms how the cpi works.

Your suggesting the same concept as raising min wage overnight by 5 dollars an hour.

What happens is your higher wages have less purchasing power. But I guess you knew that since you know basic economics.
