You're not qualified to mow the grass......

Chamber CEO: U.S. Needs More Low-Skill Immigration Since Americans Are Not 'Qualified" or 'Willing' to Do Such Work

Chamber of Commerce CEO Tom Donohue says in an op-ed that the U.S. needs more low-skill immigration because Americans are not "qualified" or "willing" to do such work.

"Immigration can also address labor shortages in lesser-skilled fields where there are insufficient numbers of either qualified or willing U.S. workers to fill positions," Donohue writes.

Alabama senator Jeff Sessions tries to frame the issue differently. We must transition struggling Americans from welfare and joblessness to work and rising wages, says Sessions. But the only plan the President and Senate Democrats appear interested in supporting would hollow out a shrinking American middle class. It is time to redefine 'immigration reform' to serve the legitimate interests of working Americans.

The Chamber is nothing more than the mouthpiece for big corporate America. While I will cede that there are Americans who do not want to mow grass for a living, to say they are unqualified is a ****ing joke. They just want to import cheaper and cheaper labor.

The willing is more appropriate than the qualified. If you think you're going to get anyone other than immigrants to do construction work in Texas, good luck. Even if you found them they'd probably quit after 6 hours.

Guess they'd have to do what every other business does and raise compensation, no?

Actually you would have found construction crews full of white people a decade or two ago...before the illegals came in and worked for 1/2 the cost, that is.

Crazy talk. Obviously all Americans are completely unwilling to do any of these jobs at any hourly wage.

Drive by a highway project and try to spot the American worker. I operated heavy equipment and at one time and that was a job desired by Americans. It is now dominated by fence jumpers. Oh shit that was not PC. What I intended to say was assholes from a third world country are now working attractive jobs in America~
