Could that possibly be because illegal aliens are leaving the jobs they claimed Americans would not do? Did you expect it to turn around over night? Did you crawl before you walked?
Did you realize the unemployment rate has gone down more rapidly in the states like Georgia and Alabama where state laws have been passed that bar illegal aliens from working here?

and what is even worse about this is the democrates are helping illegals before american citizens, dont you democrates hate that? That they are more worried about people who are not from this country, who have came here illegal, then the true americans,(that also came in the right way) wouldnt you like for the goverment to take all the money they spend on illegals and help americans.(imagine how much money we will save, jobs we will have, taxes wont be so much, your schools will be better) Do you know how much money also we spend on illegals in are jails and prisons, attorney fees ect. We cant take care of the world esp on the taxpayers dime, why should we struggle and just get by when we can have it soo much bertter!!!!

Albany, Ga.-
Milestone is one of the newest businesses in downtown Albany. The antiques and furniture store has only been open 3 days, but owner Scott Cowart says sales are so good, he already plans on hiring additional staff.
"I am also looking to bring on an additional person," says Cowart.

It's got to drop if laws are enforced.....

Oh well! They do NOT have the option of hiring illegal aliens. It is a felony to do so. These farmers belong in prison. Hire legal or go out of business. Too bad, so sad. Laws apply to ALL of us.

IMO, The far right liberal republicans are is doing the same thing by reaping huge profits from hiring them and using them as pawns in this whole game of crony capitalism....

37 states passed bars for the undocumented ? Keep dreaming:
The jobless rate fell in 37 states and Washington, D.C., in December as the labor market strengthened, fresh government data show. The nation’s unemployment rate fell to 8.5% from November’s revised 8.7%, the Labor Department reported earlier this month.

37 states brought the unemployment down! But wait. Georgia and Arizona didn't make the top 12 states with significant drops in unemployment rates, and they have laws like South Carolina and Utah. Vermont did make the top 12. So did Pennsylvania. And Idaho. And Maryland. And none of those has Alabama-style immigration laws.

Something else must be going on, and the analysts say, yes, indeed, there is:

People are dropping off unemployment rolls because they've become discouraged by not being able to find a job and have stopped looking, according to an analysis by Arise Citizens' Policy Project. Alabama's labor force shrank by more than 6,000 workers in October, and the labor force has been shrinking since June. Economists say a shrinking labor force makes it easier for a state to post an unemployment rate decline, even if job growth is small.

While Alabama created fewer than 10,000 jobs in October, many of those were seasonal jobs and about half were state and local government jobs. Government jobs can't be held by undocumented workers, so those were not jobs being filled by Alabamians because undocumented workers were leaving the state.

The job sectors that do use immigrant workers -- restaurants, hotels, construction and manufacturing -- lost jobs in October. If undocumented workers are vacating those jobs, Alabama workers aren't rushing to fill them. Indeed, this week, the Associated General Contractors, based in Arlington, Va., said Alabama having the second-highest number of construction jobs lost from September to October -- 3.2 percent or 2,700 jobs -- is related to construction crews leaving the state in the wake of the immigration law.

http://www.wehirealiens.com/

This is a 100% free site to report illegal aliens.

Check your city and state to see who hires illegal aliens and who doesn't.

If you know of a place that does hire illegal aliens, then you can now report it to this site.

They will do all of the governmental paperwork and notify the FBI and ICE about illegal alien workers.

About the site:

The biggest incentive for illegal aliens to come to the United States is to find work. If there are no employers willing to hire the illegal aliens, then the flood of illegal aliens will subside.

So the purpose of this website is to expose "alleged" employers of illegal aliens. In this effort we need your help. First, if you know of a suspected employer of illegal aliens report them here.

Second, search or browse the "alleged" employers of illegal aliens and, if you are compelled by the evidence, email them telling them you will no longer patronize their business. In the same email, make sure they know that you will also tell everyone you know NOT to patronize their business. We've got pre-written emails to help you do this.

Finally, use our website to report these "alleged" employers to the proper authorities. Again, we've got emails already written that you can send off at the touch of a button.

LaRaza-ACLU-NAACP-SPLC and every other special interest thinktank under the sun is representing "minorities" .

Who's fighting for and representing me...???

The regular, everyday, WHITE ANGLO AMERICAN CAUCASIAN <pfuck I hate all the politically correct "terms" these days)

I intend to empower Americans like myself to fight back against this form of insidious racism without feeling any form of guilt, any form of remorse or any form of fear of reprisal for speaking up LOUDLY for their OWN country, and that they should not somehow have to be made to feel that they have to speak in "politically correct" terms just to be able to get by in a daily conversation.

Now, somehow, all of a sudden, we're left out of place in our own homeland that we once knew!

Us everyday white Joe's in America have no special interest groups working 24-7 for us.

And all of this, merely for the sake of this "political correctness" BS and so as not to step on anyone's "toes".

"Minorities" (an invented term by the way), they do it all the time with impunity in this country, and their enablers,(ACLU-NAACP-SPLC-LaRa za etc.), their "pit bosses" actually, they make an astronomical amount of money by doing so, merely by keeping it very much an issue and very much alive, when it isn't even really a viable issue any longer these days in America!

I am proud of my WHITE ANGLO-AMERICAN CAUCASIAN heritage, and all of you naysayers can take any and all anti- American, racist, white guilt, poor me comments over to your local "equal rights" thinktank and have them tell you what you need to think and hear and what to believe and say and feel.

DO NOT attempt to tie our hands behind our back with your ACLU-NAACP-SPLC-LaRaza-White-G uilt manipulation trash or by the use of our own U.S. Constitution against us and against the *greater common good* of the citizens of this, my country.

Because we will fight back.

And you, will lose.

<quoted text>Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., chairman of the subcommittee, went further, declaring that state and national E-Verify laws “pose a potentially fatal threat to the livelihood of American farmers.”
Lawmakers’ solutions varied widely. Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., promoted giving a "blue card" to current migrant agricultural workers allowing them to stay for five years with their families as long as they continue to do agricultural work.  Feinstein contended that the difficult labor and often sweltering conditions keep U.S. citizens away, leaving migrants, in most cases, as the only workers willing to do it.
The subcommittee in Washington also heard testimony from Connie Horner, who co-owns an organic blueberry farm in South Georgia. She told of the bureaucratic nightmares of the H-2A visa system and failed efforts with local, legal workers, who don’t last long and are ineffective.
“I need your help,” she said,“to make it easier to do what’s right.”
The AG industry did a study and determined that agricultural employers could raise salaries by 40% and still make a sizeable profit.

What's right is a fair wage;
not dumping healthcare and welfare on the taxpayers

If you can't be in business w/o exploiting workers; you shouldn't be in business

One month is hardly enough time to determine a trend. Illegal construction crews are leaving the state. Unemploywent is going down for Americans in those states

Wait until after the holiday season workers are let go. Unemployment will be back up and you'll have little to nothing to crow about.

<quoted text>
California has the highest illegal population in the U.S. They also have the 2 nd highest unemployment rate only to be beat by another top illegal population state, Nevada.

By the way the fact is that the unemployment rate in Georgia has dropped since they started to enforce immigrration laws, contrary to your opinion.
