The Big Myth About Dirty Jobs, Minimum Wage, and Illegal Immigration

NEW YORK—Wherever you stand on the Wetback Issue, you’re no longer allowed to say the following sentence:

“Mexicans only take the dirty jobs that Americans won’t do.”

    “Get rid of the illegal Mexicans and see how fast that wage goes up to $15 on its own, no government intervention needed.

    But, of course, that would require caring about the single mom, the ex-con trying to straighten out his life, the lonely elderly guy who wants to go back to work, the diabetes patient who needs a wheelchair because of his swollen feet, and the guy who finally kicked drugs and needs to start over. That would require having a social conscience.”

    Get rid of the cheap hispanic labor and watch so many social problems go away with them.
    Deport the root cause, and you deport the problem!

    • Amen.

      I would take a Mexican over a Darkie or an Arab any day.

        Would you rather have an American that you can communicate with?

      So we should start by deporting congress!

    O/T but on Canadian immigration plans for 2018. Wanna do some cursing, read this.

    • Yup, read that, they are bastards serving an anti-Canadian agenda.

    • Drunk by Noon ✓

      “The 2017 immigration plan called for 300,000 immigrants, boosting numbers in the “economic” class that includes skilled workers, businesspeople and caregivers as well as an increase in the family class for sponsored spouses, partners, children, parents and grandparents.”

      “NDP Immigration critic Jenny Kwan called on the government to be more ambitious with its 2018 plan, insisting immigration is the best way to offset an aging population and fill significant labour gaps.”

      “Federal policy must focus on bringing in a “balanced and diverse range” of immigrants instead of focusing on high-skilled workers for permanent residents and relying on temporary foreign workers for lower-skilled jobs.”

      The NDP must really hate the average working Canadian!

    There is no such thing as a shortage of workers. There is only lower than market value wages.

      Do you think there could be an over valuation of being a WELFARE Bun?

    In the construction trades in NC, the differential between legal and illegal labor rates isn’t that big. It exists but it’s maybe 10-12%. The key difference is in the costs of OSHA and insurance compliance.
