Where Are All These Summer Workers Coming From?

Very interesting article.

You see, these businesses bring in cheap labor to take American teenagers' jobs. They pay these foreign workers less and work them harder.

What is next? Work Visas for adult jobs?

American teenagers should have first right of refusal for these jobs. My understanding, these jobs are in summer resort areas and amusement parks.

Child labor laws MUST be followed. Read an article where a business owner said that American teenagers only want drink, party and miss work. I know this happens with a few, but not most and probably happens with some of the foreign workers too.

What is disturbing is the real reason in most cases: they pay foreign students much less and work them more hours than pay. The teenagers are in a foreign country and are afraid to say something unless they come together in a large group and revolt (like at Hersheys). SHAME ON THESE EMPLOYERS - GREED IS BAD!- GREED IS AGAINST GOD!)

How can we rebuild America if this sort of thing is going on? Teenagers need to work to earn money for college.

Another shameful thing is that big Corporations hire "UNPAID" interns and work them 50 - 70 hours a week (sometimes more). How can these people look at themselves in the mirror?

If you would have read the article you would has seen that this is NOT about illegal immigrants.

This is a SUMMER TRAVEL program that brings in teenagers/young adults from other countries to work at summer jobs.

If you are not willing to inform yourself, why bother posting?

You come across as an idiot.
