Hi, This is Wayne. This is my site, my stuff, my blog, blahblahblah. The site itself is powered by WordPress and the Scary Little theme. I thought it was cool, and I still do.

Cheap Labor

Isn’t that what the whole immigration issue is about?

Business don’t want to pay a decent wage, consumers don’t want expensive produce, and the Government will tell you Americans don’t want the jobs.

But the bottom line is cheap labor.

“The phrase “cheap labor” is a myth, a farce, and a lie. There is no such thing as “cheap labor.”

Take, for example, an illegal non-English-speaking Mexican who sneaks in here with his wife and five children.

He takes a job for five or six dollars an hour. At that wage with six dependents he pays no income tax, yet at the end of the year if he files income tax he gets an “earned income credit” of up to $3,200 free.

He qualifies for Section 8 housing and subsidized rent, he qualifies for food stamps. He qualifies for free (no deductible, no co-pay) health care. His children get free breakfasts and lunches at school. He requires bilingual teachers and books.

Wait, there’s more! He qualifies for relief from high energy bills. If they are or become, aged, blind or disabled they qualify for SSI. Once qualified for SSI they can qualify for medicare.

All of this is at that taxpayers expense. Oh wait, I’m not done yet.

He doesn’t have to worry about car insurance, life insurance, or homeowners insurance. Taxpayers provide Spanish language signs, bulletins and printed material. He cannot be fired, harassed, or sued. He and his family receive the equivalent of $20 to $30 an hour in benefits.

Contrast this with working Americans, who are lucky to have $5 or $6 an hour left after paying their bills and his.

Cheap labor? YEAH RIGHT!”

Hey, we all want to share our voice. And I particularly love comments, especially if you took the time to read my blog entry. I'll take the time to read your comment, I swear! But due to spammers, robots, and the fact that I want my blog to be PG rated, I need to approve the comments. This should be same day, but please don't get mad if it takes me a while to approve the comment.


PLEASE help keep this blog family-friendly by refraining from profanity and vulgarity.
