Behind a paywall, no can do.

I can't speak for America, but where I live, the native population cannot supply the needs of the local economy. I'm not talking about back-breaking dumb labor (fruit pickers) either. In the medical industry here, fully half the doctors and nurses are non-natives. Universities simply cannot educate enough people. I suppose it is similar in many other countries.

But we would have to get around this pesky problem. Libs never close their posts. The intent being to make everything look rosy, it would appear.. It is not rosy.
I will prob start making my posts linky like Marauder. I don't blame you if you find them boring. Just attempting to round out issues, without my own opinions. We get enough of that. This post is a good start.

You mean those jobs they are paying taxes on and maybe union dues? How DARE they think they can pay taxes, we only want AMERICAN taxes.

And you fervently wish you had a dozen or so. So you could have a reason to wear your Ku Klux Klan robe and head cover.

They're trimming and packaging our Mary Jane, doing construction work, picking fruit, manning kitchens, doing maid work...

I don't want 'them' to have my email. I don't like spreading my digital footprint all over the Internet. That's why I buy 'The Economist' at the local news agents.

If you think it was, then I suggest you offer yourself into slavery, work for no wages until you can't anymore, then come back and tell us how you liked it. Oh, and don't forget to tell us what useful skills you learned along the way (harnessing an ox behind a plow, how to use a hoe and sharpen an axe, pulling bugs out of cotton balls, etc).

why don’t you offer yourself as an illegal immigrant and work for below minimum wage, while American citizens are put out of a job?
