Immigants and jobs & O..
Published on January 22, 2009 By ShadowWar In US Domestic

I have a few concerns and questions about the current administrations ideas and what they have talked about possible actions when it comes to the job market and economic crisis that it is said we have.

There are somewhere in the neighborhood of 1.2 million LEGAL immigrants that come into the United States every year. This of course does not include the ILLEGAL aliens that cross our borders every day. The current administration would have to create over 100,000 jobs a month in the US just to keep up with the immigrants coming to the US. What about all those Americans who are already here that need jobs?? Is it time to put a moratorium on legal immigrants?

The Bureau of Labor Statistics said that in Dec we lost 632,000 additional jobs.

SO how is the new administration going to stem the tide of job loss, and does that include the dropping of the allowed number of legal immigrants to help increase the job market for Americans?

Obama says he wants to create 5 million new "green" jobs in the next 10 years. OK do the math yourself. 11.1 million unemployed now, not 10 years from now. Add the number of legal immigrants, those losing their jobs, and how do we stem the tide of job loss and turn it around?

I for one can't wait to see how the new administration tries to fix this problem. If what they say they are going to do, they actually do, we will continue to go in the hole and get deeper and deeper. I hope something happens, I hope whatever they do works better than they say it will, but I am very skeptical.

If you do that, the number of jobs will grow slower.

Immigrants create jobs.

We definitely do not want to do that. (We could look at the Visa programs like H1b, but that is another matter).  What we need to do is get control of the illegal immigration.  But for other reasons not related to the jobs.

Obama has said he is going to spend $840b to get 3.5 million to work.  That works out to over $200k per job. How long do you think private companies can be in business if they were spending that kind of money to hire people?  And people look to the governemtn to bail us out?

How long will those jobs be safe?

I don't understand how that is supposed to work. Who is getting the money? Or will it be used for infrastructure? I would assume that spending that much money on building streets, bridges, and tunnels could work. What is he planning to spend it on?

Well the middle class.... skilled workers... professionals are going to be left out to dry. Instead the "minorities" that have no skills what so ever will be in charge of building these bridges... enjoy... after all you guys voted these nuts in and now you get to live with the wonder "gee is this bridge going to give out while im driving over it?"
