Will Obamacare Cost You Your Job?

The author should have discussed high immigration and free trade agreements. Employers love high immigration to flood the labor markets and drive down wages. Immigration today both legal and illegal is very often about cheap labor. It's NO accident H-1B, J-1, L-1 etc. come overwhelmingly from low wage countries such as India (forget Japan or Western Europe). Don't forget our free trade agreements either. In their zeal for profits companies want to send everything to a low wage country. If that doesn't work the next step is to bring the cheap labor here through easy high immigration. We soooo need to get high immigration and free trade agreements under control. Obamacare is bad, but it's not our only problem.
Lower immigration BOTH legal and illegal would truly help the whole country except employers. Does it make sense to let in large numbers of low wage desperate foreigners when we have such unemployment and wage stagnation? But employers and our elite soooo love their cheap labor and servants regardless what it does to everyone else. And make no mistake: immigration today is largely about cheap labor. It's NO accident H-1B, J-1, L-1 etc. have always come overwhelmingly from low wage countries (forget Japan or Western Europe). Oh btw recent immigrants rarely vote for the GOP and even Sen Amnesty McCain couldn't change that. So high immigration hurts the GOP and the country. But employers and our elite soooo love their cheap labor and servants regardless what it does to everyone else.

Lower immigration BOTH legal and illegal would truly help the whole country except employers, Democrats and our elite. But they soooo love their cheap labor and servants regardless what it does to everyone else. Uncontrolled immigration can ruin the country.

Oh btw recent immigrants rarely vote for the GOP and even Sen Amnesty McCain couldn't change that. High immigration hurts the country and the GOP. I doubt we'll really improve our employment situation until we stop flooding the labor markets with cheap indentured H-1B, J-1, L-1 from low wage places such as India. But employers and our elite really love high and easy immigration!

Ah, the defeatist attitude. We can't stop them so we should just let everyone come right on in. Actually shutting down immigration wouldn't be so hard if we had the will. But employers and our elite sooo love their cheap labor and servants that they keep pushing easy high immigration. And let's make no mistake: Lower immigration BOTH legal and illegal would truly help the whole country except employers. Does it make sense to bring in millions of foreign workers when we have such unemployment and wage stagnation? But even today employers often insist there is a labor and skills shortage and there are jobs Americans won't do. And of course it's a "coincidence" H-1B, J-1, L-1 etc come overwhelmingly from low wage countries (forget Japan or Western Europe). Oh btw recent immigrants rarely vote for the GOP and even Sen Amnesty McCain couldn't change that. Lower immigration would help the GOP and the country but employers and wealthy donors soooo love high and easy immigration! ugh!

No way. We should be hiring and training unemployed US workers instead of bringing in cheap labor foreigners. Immigration today is mostly about cheap labor. It's no accident H-1B, J-1, L-1 etc. come overwhelmingly from low wage countries (forget Japan or Western Europe).

Lowering BOTH legal and illegal immigration would truly help the whole country except employers. When you consider employment, education and health costs, population congestion, terrorism, disease, language issues, etc. how can you feel otherwise? But idealists such as Linda always end up saying we should take in MORE people. And employers love it. After all even today they often insist there is a labor and skills shortage and there are jobs Americans won't do. And their solution is always more foreign workers (forget training or hiring US workers). And it's a coincidence H-1B, J-1, L-1 come overwhelmingly from low wage countries. We need to wake up and see immigration today is largely about cheap labor. Great for employers, terrible for everyone else. Ugh!!
