  • Outsourcing has caused unemployment. Immigration is just a useful tool to hide inflation by keeping labor costs down in the service and construction areas. It also has the bonus of creating a dissolution of consensus which prevents anything ever being done about it. You can't tackle complex subject in a soundbite.

    • @rammfan1 Thats so true. They take lower level jobs that were used by young people to gain experience in the work industry

    • @rammfan1 Have you seen any illegals working at any corporate store? Doubt it. Some kid's aren't going to college because they are lazy fuckwits who just wanna get drunk/high.

    • @NomadicGod Bullcrap, most don't go to college because the price of college is batshyte crazy. Not everyone was born with a silver spoon in their mouth. With parents ready made to pay their way through life.

      Retail chains are always getting busted for hiring illegals, factories, the list goes on and on.

  • It use to be that immigrants from third world countries did migrant farm work for low pay because they were illiterate and had few choices so we allowed them in.One of the biggest reasons we called it a third world country was the high illiteracy rate.The problem is that illiteracy rates have dramatically fallen in those countries and they no longer want to do low paying jobs like migrant farm work.Yet in the back of our minds even though countries like Mexico are the Number 1 Automobile manufac More..

  • I do not and believe most Americans do not have a problem with immigration. I do however despise illegal immigrant/ criminal trespassers.

  • Bang on, the last centuries great economic powers have been captured by the financial industry, intended to service productive investment but now to a greater & greater extent used to ingrain privilege & power.

  • What creates unemployment is buying goods that are manufactured abroad that previously would have been made in your home country. Just look at the fridge, vacuum cleaner, dish washer, washing machine etc in your house. Where were they made? Where were the ones you owned 15-20 years ago made?

  • Free capitalist society? Where the justice system, political systems and law enforcement are bought with money?

    What a contradiction of terms, what a sick joke.

  • immigrants that enter a country and soak up social services and get a government check don't create jobs...they create a tax burden. Immigrants that enter a country to be productive citizens can create jobs though...mainly at gas stations (yeah that was racist shame on me)

  • It is quite obvious that immigration in itself does not create any jobs at all.

    • @NomadicGod

      When something is so obvious it doesn't require any stupid arguments: immigration in itself does not create any jobs at all. Do you have any proof of the contrary or should you better shut up? I am an immigrant myself and I have created jobs where I live, but I know that I am an exception because I precisely employ mostly immigrants who do not create any fucking shit at all.

      As for the "insults", since when is calling something by what it is an insult? Which part of wha More..

  • Immigration doesn't cause Unemployment. And I can save a PhD in saying so. the fuckin problem is bringing in groups of professions into a flooded market of specific employment. If we need chemical engineers and our projected chemical engineers coming from our Universities says we will be short nationally by let's say, 1000 chemical engineers, then we say to government. --- we can allow 1000 chemical engineers into our country as per this calendar year.
    The problem is --- which country? So now w More..

  • Thats assuming we are free capitalist society. We are not a free capitalist society but a corporatist Plutarchy. Until states remove corporate protection legislation that stops the average citizen from creating their own job. Ie CDL's, Business Licenses, Zoning laws, hack licenses, the list goes on and on. You could get rid of every illegal and legal immigrant and we would still be left jobless. You can not stop people from creating their own employment if you ever want a capitalist society. It More..

  • I tend to see immigrants are not productive and they don't create jobs at all maybe for there own people. A Indian guy might open a restaurant but he doesn't hire anyone but Indians to run the store and the same with convenience stores ect. Immigrants may create jobs in some circumstances but only for their own race, leaving the National citizens without jobs

Or, do you want to work at an Indian restaurant? How would you score at cooking Indian food at an Indian restaurant? Dude..
