Congratulations to the Australian Blog Dissecting Leftism for an elegant rubbishing of a magniloquent but fatuous article on the need for cheap immigrant labor posted on Techcentralstation.com.

ARE IMMIGRANTS NECESSARY?

Lee Harris says a lot of sensible things but he seems to have forgotten his economics on this subject…

What Harris overlooks is that the market deals with shortages by driving up prices. So all necessary jobs would in fact get done without immigrants but it would cost more. Otherwise how does Australia get by? Our immigration is controlled so we have nothing like the Hispanics. So who are the building workers in Australia? I ought to know as I have employed many of them over the years. They are people of British and European ancestry. And they may cost a lot per hour but because they know what they are doing they work fast. And housing in Australia is generally a lot cheaper than in America! Silly old Lee Harris!
