    If you are looking about facts about immigration, why wouldn't I use a source dedicated to the research on the subject? You just didn't like it. Not my problem. Feel free to find a source to dispute the data or conduct your own research if that is the only source you believe.

    I don't feel the need to use sources to justify my opinions and observations. I'm sorry that you do feel that need...

The fact that aliens, legal or not, are willing to work for what is offered while others are not is not going to make CEOs (or our congress critters) blink an eye. If you seriously believe that U.S. immigration policy is not correct then take that up with your congress critter, but bear in mind that Obama, our telepromter in chief, seeks to bring even more cheap foreign labor into the mix in his dreamy sort of way.

    So long as the gov't is willing to supplement the lower wages of U.S. workers with its goofy income redistribution programs, then nobody is going to care what the private portion of their income is. If I can work a McJob and have General Welfare, or Uncle Sucker, make up the cost of living difference to allow me to live comfortably then the McCEO has not a care in the world about increasing the level of pay offered.
    Well, I've been 'round about the topic of minimum wage earlier so I'm done. I just wanted to put an end to the pompous attitude I was hearing from posters about if only you get a degree in a highly needed field yada yada yada you won't have to worry. The fact is people in highly needed fields in this country are unemployed because they can be replaced with cheaper workers. It's a vicious cycle for many people in this country not just what people call the "lazy" and "stupid" or "uneducated".

    No, I don't think you know at all. It doesn't interest me to see a war of links between two posters. I'm more interested in an honest exchange of ideas as to identifying the causes and how we, as a nation, might overcome the challenges we face today. "Facts" one posts that rely on the thoughts of others as their basis is nothing more than not having a conviction of one's own...

    Welcome to Earth, third rock from the sun. The minimum wage has nothing to do with it, so long as General Welfare, or Uncle Sucker, is willing to supplement that to a "living wage". Cheaper workers are simply those that realize you are really worth only what others with the same required skill set willingly accept as a salary. You do not need to live in a very large house, drive a newish car and have hundreds of electronic toys and every imaginable labor saving appliance as seen on TV. I am quite happy to have a modest home, an old work truck a TV and a computer. To compete with my wage requirements you must either accept that lifestyle or convince an employer that your labor/skill set is so superior to mine as to command a higher pay rate.

    Conviction and facts are not the same thing but if you just want to debate your opinion feel free. Have a great night Paul.

    Fact- The American worker's wages have been stagnate for decades. Fact: Productivity has also gone up for decades. If people want to justify the stagnation of wages feel free. I find it sad in a country that is one of the richest in the world. I'm done for tonight. Have a good night ttwtt.

    Productivity is generally measured in monetary terms and in hours worked. Being among the richest nations is also measured in this fashion.

    That really doesn't tell you much in terms of how much employees are producing relative to how much they should be making.
