Re: Patrick Cleburne’s blog item Krikorian: GOP Victory To Mean High-Tech Cheap Labor Pig-Out?
From: Brian Riordan (e-mail him)
That was a great piece by Patrick Cleburneon the anticipated Republican cheap labor pigout. Too many people on the right mistakenly think that only the Obama left is the enemy of American jobs and prosperity. I have two relatives who are degreed engineers who have been unemployed or underemployed for a long time.
Furthermore, my sister tells me that most of those who graduated from engineering college with her son are working in other fields—such as cooking. I also talk to a former professor who was a software engineer who has been unemployed for several years—he hoped to at least find a retail job but was unsuccessful, last I heard.
Basic economics dictates that if there were a real shortage, multiple employers would be pursuing these engineers and bidding up wages. So it is obvious to me that the alleged shortage of American engineers is a hoax—yet all the Republican candidates want more cheap foreign technical workers.
