True, but I'm under the impression that the percentage of out-of-work citizens actually competing for those types of jobs is relatively small vs. the overall pool of Americans looking for work. Certainly some segments of job-seekers are impacted more than others, but the studies I've read/heard about show the immigrant workforce, both legal and illegal, actually has a net neutral or slightly positive effect on the job market and economy overall ... and that legalizing undocumented workers would provide additional net benefits ...
However, I take (and agree with) your point. even though my sig. other has been out of work for the past 2 years, it had nothing to do with anyone other than his flint-hearted (ex)boss. Ted suffered a heart attack, and the bassturd called him back early (thus ending his disability) only to lay him off a week later so he could cancel his insurance too.
That said, Ted was so highly skilled in his field that he set the Industry ISO Standards. But pushing 60 with a pre-existing condition has become a death sentence.
Yeah.. I know, "Life Sux, then you die."
Anyway, I believe there's enough work to go around in America, if the bassturds would only stop rigging the game.
