Americans Take Jobs Americans Don't Want

So much for the lie that illegal immigrants just take jobs that Americans don't want.

GREELEY - The line of applicants hoping to fill jobs vacated by undocumented workers taken away by immigration agents at the Swift & Co. meat-processing plant earlier this week was out the door Thursday.
Our country is at over 94 percent employment. That's about as close to full employment as we can get. The only Americans who don't want these jobs are Americans who don't want a job at all. When illegals flood the job market, the only thing they're doing is driving down competitiveness. When employers don't have to compete for workers, salaries, job benefits and working conditions decline. Once again, what liberals want is exactly opposite of what should be done. These socialists will never understand the free market.

A similar thing happened at a fence company here in SoCal where the owners were prosecuted for hiring illegals. It seems the company is getting calls from Americans who'd like to apply for the positions that will soon be vacated by the illegals.
