I'm not entirely sure I get how the Immigration bill will produce cheap labor for business? The ones willing to work cheap now, here or abroad,
won't be when they have the right to demand fair wages and you can bet they will. The illegals working cheap and making it happen right now, once
legal, are no better to the business than hiring an American right now. They can then demand the same wages...business will seek the next wave of
illegals to exploit, to maintain margins. Unemployment won't look pretty when millions of new legal workers come into the light ..just in time to be
downsized and/or simply not asked back the next season.
I read the article, of course, and I've seen these arguments elsewhere, making the same point. I just don't see how it actually happens.
Disney though... Now they are one where I CAN understand it. In Florida alone, Epcot likely has a few thousand foreign nationals, since each
"Country" area is staffed entirely by people on short term work visas. They also give internships in graphics that I know for sure out of Orlando
somewhere. That's open abroad as well as domestically, I THINK. (The internships). Disney is likely working better terms for that sort of thing.
That, and their studios with talent from all over. They kinda make sense..
General industry and the majority of work though? What can someone from other nations do better than an American can on an individual comparison
basis? I'd think of that as equal until weighing the individuals, eh?
