"President Bush characteristically issued an executive order effectively lowering the wages of reconstruction workers — and hiking the profits of their companies. He wiped out the requirement to pay prevailing wages in the disaster region, apparently thinking that $9 an hour for construction workers was too high a price to pay. The government can save money, no doubt, by exploiting illegal immigrant labor." Hurricane Looting Not Over Yet
by Jesse Jackson
As a former construction worker, I really do appreciate the thought here. I also appreciate Jackson`s son`s record
in opposing H-1b expansion. However as Barbara Jordan pointed out
, it will take a lot more to
handle the issue of illegal immigration.
