To be fair, let's also not forget that very few Europeans want to come here these days.<quoted text>It got the vast majority from Europe until 1965...it's been all downhill ever since.
It was one thing when Europe was devastated by war and in poverty, not to mention the good jobs we had here. It was one thing to work in a steel mill, at Ford or on the railroads ... as a segue to maybe opening up your own business.
Europe is no longer devastated by war and in poverty. Few people from over there want to come here to clean hotels for $8 an hour.
