Immigration and the Wage Race to the Bottom

“My parents raised me to believe that the only “dumb questions” are the questions we don’t ask.

When politicians promise to provide us with “wage equality” the corollary of “reducing wage inequality,” we must begin by asking with whom our wages will be made more equal.”

    Why should I care about any income gap between “the working poor and the billionaires?”

    Life is made of choices. You can take this job, at this wage, or not. Life isn’t fair – in fact, the sooner you learn that life is unfair, the better off you’ll be. You can choose to study in school, or party. You can choose to be a criminal and ruin your life. You can innovate and work hard and become a billionaire like Gates. You have free will. Use it as you desire.

  • Dana Garcia

    Supply and demand still functions as ever. More available workers leads to lower wages.

    What else do you need to know about business’ constant lobbying for more immigration?
