I'll be frank and to the point, I'm no Liberal I'm a Leftist. My largest concern is our horrific American Labor market, which has purposely be inflated to keep wages down. This has all been done with excited Democratic Party support, and everytime they use legitimate social injustices to force us to swallow their poison.
Recently Immigration reform has been heavily promoted by mainstream politicians, and this usually means it has horrific economic consequences for working people. To get any bi-partisan support from the GOP, it usually means the policy must seriously cater to their economic concerns, since they will likely take heat for whatever social policy the Democrats demand.
We have multiple problems with our immigration system, as we know, but my issue is not with granting a path to citizenship or supporting dreamers. How could it be, that's the part that they use to sell us a destructive heap of corporatist garbage?
The true reason to oppose this disturbing reform package is what's attached along for the ride.
Increased H1 Visas! For which jobs you may ask? STEM Jobs! That;s right, I guess that fancy computer science degree really wasn't that important?
Rather than incentivising workers to learn additional skills, using the old method of higher wages and benefits, capitalists would much rather import workers and maintain a large pool of unemployed American workers.
Isn't it interesting that Democrats, who claim to support workers, wouldn't advocate this aspect?
This is horrific, and using the legitimate concern of supporting dreamers, against the American IT workers makes me enraged.
