Immigration Amnesty Bill  

June 28, 2013

The Immigration Amnesty Bill passed in the Senate this week with a vote of 68-32. The House of Representatives is the only thing left standing between this bill and further economic hardships for America. The number of Americans employed (the participation rate) is still as low as it was in the late 1970s, but wages are nowhere near as high as they were back then.

By flooding America with more workers, there will be even more competition for the few remaining jobs we have. If you think it is hard finding a good paying job now, wait a decade or two and see how hard it is. First the politicians sent our high paying factory jobs to China, and now they are bringing in even more workers to take what jobs are left.

This will drive down wages too. It is basic economics: supply and demand. If we had less workers and more jobs, employers would have to offer bigger paychecks to get people to work for them. If we have too many workers and not enough jobs, employers can offer lower pay and still have no problem finding people desperate for work.

This is supported by American history. In the ’50s, ’60s, and ’70s when we had little international trade and lots of manufacturing jobs, people could get nice jobs straight out of high school. There are even countless examples of people like Chuck Berry getting good pay at a factory jobs straight out of prison and turning his life around as a result. How much would crime go down, and lives turned around, if we simply had more decent paying jobs?

Go here to see more reasons to stand up for America by opposing this bill that will bring us more economic hardships.
