Did anybody see this on Neil Cavuto today about the impact of illegal immigration on U.S. jobs? The movie trailer here looks very interesting. Nobody will show this guy's film even though they say it is top quality.

Let also not forget all the manufacturing jobs that left our country for cheaper labor abroad. And customer service type jobs that are now fielded in places like India.

And the liberal arts college that keeps pumping out interior designers or political science degrees...really? What job are you going to get? How many with a college degree are working at Denny's? Quite a few because they didn't look at the real world and persue a degree in a field that was actually hiring!
Student, no IMHO the employers bear no blame for the unemployment rate. They hire as needed. They have to make profit to stay in business. The bigger problem is the lack of skilled people looking for jobs. Handouts from the government are too easy.

So there is no company in this country that is understaffed?
I find that hard to believe.

Is it better to be understaffed or higher unqualified that wind up costing you more money to correct things behind them?
Maybe you should look to the other side of the coin there...you mean there are no employees out there that a company can't live without?"Fortunately, I keep my feathers numbered for just such an emergency." Foghorn Leghorn

I'm not saying the employee owes anyone anything....my I have already stated that these are rights of employers.
The question...when companies choose to work understaffed, does this raise or lower unemployment?
Companies not hiring leads to fewer people being employed...plain and simple.

How about starting out with no more carte blanch at the grocery store. EBT good for bread, bologna, pb&j, milk, juice, and water. Nobody will starve unless its by chioce. Ween them off the teat one nipple at a time. Time limit for welfare benefits. Free job training. Teach them the construction trades and have them build more prisons. That way the non compliers will be able to keep their free housing. Absolutely no free cell phones or cable tv. Need to use a computer, go to the library. Section 8 housing for a time limit with the person receiving the benefit responsible for 1/2 the rent. Don't have an answer about the cash for babies program. You don't comply you're homeless. Illegals get zero benefits and immediatly deported once they're found out.
There is no easy answer but something needs to be done.Local 597 Service Fitter
