Two things to consider Brother...
The law of supply and demand - when the supply of low-cost (Even at minimum wages) exceeds the demand there is no incentive to raise wages. Instead
you have X number more people on welfare, public assistance or unemployment.
Let me give you an example - a local McDonalds needed night shift workers but were unable to fill the position at the federal minimum wage standards.
There was a surplus of slightly better paying jobs that were attracting would-be employees away from McDs. So, they raised the pay structure from
$5.85 and hour to $7.85 an hour and received an influx of applicants all eager to make the inflated wage. What happens when you have a surplus of
workers looking for work? They take whatever job they can get at whatever pay is offered - most likely minimum wage. Add 30M illegal, mostly
uneducated and under-skilled workers to the U.S. inventory of unskilled workers and watch what happens.
Secondly, anything short of kicking the illegals out of the country is Amnesty - plain and simple. I'm sorry if you can't see that, but there is
ALREADY a process in place to enter this country legally, become naturalized and work. There is no other way to look at it. These people are being
offered a "Special" program toward citizenship that is OUTSIDE the existing legal method and offers preferential treatment - THAT is AMNESTY! You
have bought, hook, line and sinker, the political argument that there are fines and blah, blah, blah.
They are here ILLEGALLY and MSUT leave. Period! Once they're OUT OF THE COUNTRY, then they are more than welcome to join the ranks of the hundreds
of thousands of other people that seek employment, residency or citizenship through the LEGAL process as it exists.
This whole thing is a Red Herring. They are trying to legislate a solution to a problem that already has a legislated solution - much like gun
control. Simply enforce the laws as they exist right now and CLOSE THE BORDER!!! Problem solved! If we would just begin deportation, secure the
border and enforce the existing laws you would be amazed and how quickly and easily this problem would be solved.
