CHEAP LABOR Isnt that Cheap

Isn't that what the whole immigration issue is about?(image placeholder) Business doesn't want to pay a decent wage(image placeholder) Consumers don't want expensive produce(image placeholder) Government will tell you Americans don't want the jobs(image placeholder) But the bottom line is cheap labor
The phrase "cheap labor" is a myth, a farce, and a lie
~ there is no such thing as "cheap labor."Take, for example, an illegal alien with a wife and five children.He takes a job for $5.00 or $6.00/hour.

At that wage, with six dependents, he pays no income tax,
yet at the end of the year, if he files an Income Tax Return,
he gets an "earned income credit" of up to $3,200 free.

He qualifies for Section 8 housing and subsidized rent(image placeholder) He qualifies for food stamps He qualifies for free (no deductible, no co-pay) health care.

His children get free breakfasts and lunches at school. He requires bilingual teachers and books.
He qualifies for relief from high energy bills. If they are or become, aged, blind or disabled,
they qualify for SSI. Once qualified for SSI they can qualify for Medicare.

All of this is at that taxpayer̢۪s expense.He doesn't worry about car insurance, lifeinsurance, or homeowners insurance.Taxpayers provide Spanish language signs, bulletins
and printed material.He and his family receive the equivalent of $20.00 to
$30.00/hour in benefits.Working Americans are lucky to have $5.00 or $6.00/hour
Left after paying their bills and his.The American taxpayer's also pay for increased crime,
graffiti and trash clean-up.Cheap labor?
Wake up people!

Thanks Win S.
