<quoted text>Exactly. It seems that every container driver I run into is from the middle-east or Russia. Same goes with flatbed drivers. The CB radio sounds like the UN on many days.

As long as companies can get these foreigners to work for nothing, they are going to pay nothing. Plus the fact we have a lot of guys out there who are college educated or have a different career, it's just that there is no work in their field right now. I call them non-professional drivers.

Since the flood of these people, truck accidents have been on the increase. They can barely read English and some are just not used to spending long hours on the road. They don't belong behind the wheel of a truck. They belong behind a computer or drafting table.
It's a shame. The police avoid dealing with them, because their hands are tied.

With the crap you must go through now to get a job, they want to pay less for a skilled craftman or a driver.

As far as construction goes, they are cutting their own throat trying to underbid each other, just to get the work and pay slave wages.

As far as drivers are concerned, being an illegal, you will NOT get a driving job, as far as I know, they take fingerprints and run you through NCIC, FBI, NSA and rest of the alphabet agencies.

You won't last long being an Illegal doing that job.

I've never seen or heard of a single liberal anywhere in the world doing and saying that, so again you don't know the difference between fantasy and reality.
I do know that conservatives give when there's a tax write-off.
So, what you're bytching about is liberals not giving, AND that liberals want the government to give more to help people.
You're also saying that conservatives give more, AND that you all are right when you parrot your poison about how people should not be helped.
Do you even KNOW how to THINK for yourself?
Hey, why not listen to messiah when he gives a State of the Union speech next time rather than just worship him.
You'll hear a libby use the words "I" and Me" so many damn times you'll think he is really a god. That's called fanfare.
We have yet to hear him take any responsibility for record debt, record food stamp recipients, record unemployment, record bankruptcies, record crime, etc.
How about bailouts to "Green" companies that folded?

And you have always aluded to or even hailed libbies as more compassionate and charitble that conservatives which is the biggest pile of horsecrap in the world.

I would even bet Joe Biden has given more donations than you have. LOL

Brought on by the economy that messiah has going. Supply and demand alos plays out in the job market. With record unemployment it is easy to pay less because that's what the market bears.

Again, messiah's fault. There are numerous "shovel ready" projects that never saw any bailout monies because messiah said with a giggle "There weren't as many shovel ready jobs as we thought." Lots of local governments have projects on back burners because tax revenue is down (because of a bad economy) and waiting for that money that never came.

Representative Michele Bachmann, a Minnesota Republican planning to seek the party’s presidential nomination, said she would stoke U.S. economic growth by cutting taxes on corporate income and capital gains and considering elimination of the minimum wage.

Tonight during the Republican Presidential debate Congressman Ron Paul was asked if he believes that eliminating the minimum wage would create jobs.

2011/09/07

He emphatically stated that he does think that eliminating the minimum wage would create jobs, and that it would also help the poor.

For most people, making $15,000 a year would be nowhere near enough to get by in this country. When people consider their own lives with groceries, gas for their cars, mortgage payments or rent, various bills and other expenses, bringing in slightly less than $300 a week would probably seem terrifying and stressful for them.

The idea that some Republican candidates would not see that as an issue proves they do not understand and do not care about the problems of the middle class. There is no reason to think the previous 116 Republicans who voted against the wage increase in 2007 would now vote for an increase. If Republicans regain the majority, middle class America could see their lives become that much harder.

Poor teabagger.

Show where a conservative has "dished it out". Dr. Sniper referred to denial and blinders in response to your reply to a credible post. You in turn cast the stupidity and ignorance crap. Can you not see the difference?
When viable information is posted and you choose to ignore it and stick to your misinformation, people saying you have blinders on, or are in denial, or are willfully ignorant, is not an insult. It is a valid observation.
In the other hand, when you call people stupid and ignorant and idiots... just because you don't like what they said or proved or that they debunked your misinformation, that is casting insults.

I hope this has helped you see how you come off to the people reading this thread.

messiah needs to man up. He calims not to hurt the middle class. Oh, but, wait:

Consumers are saving less. The nation’s personal-saving rate fell to 2.6% in the first quarter, down from 4.7% in the final three months of 2012. Higher payroll taxes since the start of the year and higher gasoline prices have taken a bite out of consumers’ disposable incomes. The saving rate — what’s left after spending and taxes — is the lowest since late 2007, before the recession started.

Yes it does. Sorry it's too simple to understand so I'll dumb it down for ya:
1- Tax cuts for businesses creates more capital, which allows for reinvestment to grow the busniess which creates jobs which increase tax revenue for Uncle Sam.
2-Tax cuts for individuals (or newly employed workers from No. 1 above) creates more disposible income that creates an increase in consumer spending which creates more capital which (see No. 1 above) which increase revenue for Uncle Sam.

Yet, you somehow believe that tax increases stimulates the economy? Weird. Taking money out of the econmoy does just the opposite of the above scenario.

Oh, and incase you play the corporate greed card, what do you think happens with that money (profit)? As salaries or bonuses, it's hidden away in matresses in large mansions? No, it's either invested in stocks, bonds, businesses or spent on lavish living that infact is called consumer spending that also creates jobs and grows businesses.

Growing the government does NOT grow the economy. Just ask Russia.

Minimum wage, maximum folly
Walter Williams

About a fortnight ago, Mrs. Williams alerted me to an episode of Oprah Winfrey's show titled "Inside the Lives of People Living on Minimum Wage." After a few minutes of watching, I turned it off, not because of the heartrending tales but because most of what was being said was dead wrong. Let's look at it.

The show claims that 30 million Americans earn the minimum wage of $5 an hour. Actually, the federal minimum wage is $5.15 an hour, and 17 states mandate a higher minimum wage that approaches $7 an hour. At one point, Oprah did manage to clear up this aspect of the show's errors.

The U.S. Department of Labor reports: "According to Current Population Survey estimates for 2004, some 73.9 million American workers were paid at hourly rates, representing 59.8 percent of all wage and salary workers. Of those paid by the hour, 520,000 were reported as earning exactly $5.15." ( http://www.bls.gov/cps/minwage2004.htm#2 )

Workers earning the minimum wage or less tend to be young, single workers between the ages of 16 and 25. Only about two percent of workers over 25 years of age earn minimum wages.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics: Sixty-three percent of minimum wage workers receive raises within one year of employment, and only 15 percent still earn the minimum wage after three years. Furthermore, only 5.3 percent of minimum wage earners are from households below the official poverty line; forty percent of minimum wage earners live in households with incomes $60,000 and higher; and, over 82 percent of minimum wage earners do not have dependents.

The U.S. Department of Labor also reports that the "proportion of hourly-paid workers earning the prevailing Federal minimum wage or less has trended downward since 1979."
