‘Labor Shortage’ Stories
‘Labor Shortage’ Stories by Lying Corporations & Politicans to keep Millions of Foriegn Workers Coming to US
The “labor shortage” claim is an old lobbying gambit that reporters still haven’t caught onto. Mass-immigration activists learned decades ago that the press loves a scary story about shortages, whether it is true or not. In 2007, just before the recession Michael S. Teitelbaum, Vice President of the Sloan Foundation testified before Congress and noted that interest groups have a right to promote their own interests, but “politicians [and] journalists often believe, [and] Federal agencies often fail to analyze” the unsubstantiated claims of labor shortages. His testimony rings as true in this jobless recovery as it did four years ago before the recession.
Consider these statistics:
In the first two years of the recession (2008, 2009), the U.S. economy lost 8.2 million jobs while adding 2.4 million legal and illegal immigrants.
From 2000-2009, the U.S. government imported 10.3 million permanent foreign workers, a new record, despite two recessions and jobless recoveries.
The U.S. government issues an average of 75,000 new permanent work visas every month.
Eight million U.S. jobs are held by illegal workers.
