IDEA
Yes, Immigration Hurts American Workers
The candidates tell drastically different stories about immigration. They’re both skipping half the truth.

By GEORGE J. BORJAS September/October 2016

Duh!

luee! We get it!


You hate and fear black and brown people and you think there are hordes of them teeming at the border waiting to swarm in like the zombies in WORLD WAR Z.

Just pull the covers over your head and squinty your eyes real tight and it will all be alright.

On the contrary, I love the American worker and what all the labor unions did to improve working conditions and made the workplace  the most enjoyable and productive one in the world. I am for the native workers of all races and creeds. It is the blue collar worker who is being squeezed out and is having his power and voice taken away. The one percenters want to use the failures and self-loathers to continue to castrate the labor movement by allowing cheap labor from backward third world areas in. Someone used GEORGE J. BORJAS as a defender of open borders he certainly was not, in his own words.

No, it's not the immigrants squeezing blue collar workers, Luee. Borjas's numbers don't show that.

The loss of voice and power comes from the attacks on unions - not coming from the "liberal elite" you love to attack.

The loss of voice and power comes from the loss of jobs due to automation - not from the immigrants.

The loss of voice and power comes from corporations moving jobs to other countries - not either immigrants or liberals.

America needs more plumbers, more carpenters, etc. We don't lack for work for them. We don't need a ton more for our assembly lines, regardless of where they are from.

And the tariffs are not bringing back many jobs --> about 6% of the overseas manufacturing places in China might come back. The rest are either staying or moving, but not moving here.

Rashida was born in Detroit, AOC in the Bronx.  AOC's dad was also born in the Bronx.
Her mother is from PR, which is a US territory.  Trump remains an ignorant slandering twit, water remains wet, gravity still pulls down.

Too many unions kept too many workers away from membership for too long.
Too many union members opted for the policies that benefit the 1%.
Too many white people fall for the same racist, sexist and xenophobic GOP message year after year.

You fucked up and just won’t stop.

Luee’s Concern for workers would be better served by policies that punish employers for any substandard employment practices rather then allowing them to benefit from an underground labor market. Dividing worker against worker is how the rich stay rich and why America continues to fester in the stink of its original sin.

The best remedy to having under paid migrants undercutting wages would be to bring them into the legal work force, so they there will be no economic incentive to hire them.

The impact of rising sea levels on the property sales market has finally hit the media, though it hit the market a while ago.

That it is in the news is going to cause the trend to spread and to spread quickly and widely, I suspect.

I am sure that Ward will have something "witty" to say about this,while Bambi-ignorance's #1 radio host will insist that it is still a hoax and these people shifting their buying are in on it or something similarly banal, pointless, and flat wrong.

By the way, at some point either Kiiid or Ward challenged us to prove that Trump had said or done something racist.

This? This is a very clear example of his saying something racist.
