I just read an interesting article in the NY Times called . For Illegal Immigrants, Housing Slump Takes Toll What they talk about is illegal immigrants working in construction jobs at wages of $25.00 to $35.00 an hour.
Now just stop...take a deep breath... and listen very carefully.
Weren’t we being told by the Republican Party and George W. "Bust", that these illegal immigrants were "Doing the jobs the Americans won’t do"! You Know like picking lettuce, or "cor-r-rn", as our "leader" likes to say.
Now if I’m not mistaken when I was a kid, a construction job was considered one of the best jobs you could get in America!
I wonder when Americans walked away from wanting a job that pays $25.00 to $35.00 an hour.
Another item in the article if you read between the lines is that the amount of unemployment related to the housing industry shows barely any change.
Now clear your head and ponder what that means...
For those of you a little slower on the uptake what it means is this. The housing industry is one of the largest employment fields in the country, now you had a severe decline in the construction of new homes but yet the unemployment statistics show everything is just "hunky dory". Now why is that?
Because that means that illegal aliens are taking almost all the jobs in the construction field that pay $25.00 to $35.00 an hour, and because they are illegal, they get paid off the books and they never show up as a worker in the first place! They were never there...even though you see them remember "These are not the droids you are looking for".
I find it ver-r-r-r-ey... ver-r-r-r-ey funny that Americans don’t want to work for $25.00 to $35.00 an hour...
