We don't need any more Visa workers, until the imept excuse for our government knows who's coming in and that they left! There are 23 different visas, none of which work now! Hire legal workers..........

Pay a wage a person can survive on and the jobs will fill.

How high is unemployment now? Do we really need more foreign workers? Let's go as the people of Danville, VA who watched their town all but crumble but then come back thanks to IKEA. Many took pay cuts but they got jobs they could survive on! Let's talk to all those in MI losing jobs as plants fail... Do we need more foreign workers to fill jobs?

Yeah... That's what I thought...

LOL!!

IKEA is a Swedish store that has expanded into the US and is building factories in the US (hiring US citizens) because it is cheaper than making products in Europe for the stores here.

This is what IKEA is doing for the US (I have a friend who used to live in Danville and moved just before IKEA moved in).

Danville is your typical town that started to die when industry pulled out leaving a lot of hardworking people jobless. They are coming back and show that we will do the jobs if we can live off the wages.

Too bad US based companies will not do this!
