Barack Obama and the Congressional Democrats are claiming that their stimulus bill is going to provide up to 4 million jobs.
My question is, “For whom?”
I’ve done construction work including highway construction, and I grew up doing farm work. So, I have a good idea what this work entails.
They talk about creating jobs to rebuild infrastructure … roads, schools, levees, etc.
Who’s going to do this work?
The last time I looked most of these jobs were increasingly being performed by … ?immigrant Mexican labor?.
Is this about creating jobs for legal Americans or illegal and/or legal Mexican immigrants? Is this about stimulating our economy or the Mexican economy?
