For two decades, real wages for hourly workers have been stagnant or in decline. Income disparity has widened dramatically. The middle class is in a squeeze. Studies in top scholarly journals have shown that the flooding of the labor market with foreign workers has been a significant factor.
With tens of millions of Americans – native and foreign-born – currently unable to support a family at even lower-middle-class standards, should the federal government continue to import hundreds of thousands of new foreign workers to compete with the most vulnerable of our countrymen and women?
Most Americans want to stop such insensitive competition. They are FOR a life of dignity for even the lowest skilled of workers. Congress should show some compassion.
