there is no solution proposed by any of the GOP candidates or the current administration that addresses this issue properly:<quoted text>
And the business owners don't pay a living wage or apply for guest workers because that is inconvenient or costly. Who are they kidding?
"Since it's their business, and their money, they hire whomever they please, and run their business however they please. Serioulsy? Totally unregulated? I guess you want exactly the same thing for corporate America and Wall Street?
"Most of the commenters here want big government to make the hiring decisions, and they have the audacity to call themselvs 'conservative'?." No, they just want the farmers to hire Americans or (legal) Immigrants.
How about we apply that same sentiment to all big corporations and stop buying products from American companies that have shipped all of their factories to China, Mexico, etc? Seems that we are all crying that illegals are here doing work that Americans would never do for $10 an hour. But we willingly shop at the neighborhood retail store and buy cheap stuff that, if produced in America, would cost triple the amount (or more). If we, as citizens of the US were as passionate about demanding that US comanies stop sending jobs to other countries, as we are about blaming all of our unemployement problems on illegals, then maybe we'd have more companies keeping their factories in the US, and hiring more US workers. Our unemployement might drop so low that we wouldn't need to spend so much time worrying about the illegals picking our produce.
