There should not be any jobs that Americans (i.e. legal residents in America) won’t do. Because there should not be any viable business plans that rely on illegal labor. Those that are, are simply organized crime, whether the employees are prostitutes or agricultural workers. If you can’t charge your customers enough to cover the cost of legally producing your product, tough.
Americans won’t work in poultry processing for less than $45.00 per hour? Then working conditions need to change, or chicken prices need to rise until you make enough to cover costs. That’s what Mister Market says. Don’t you love the free market? No, of course you don’t, you rent-seeking crony.
“‘There are American workers who, for lack of a better term, can’t cut it,’ a Rubio aide told me. ‘There shouldn’t be a presumption that every American worker is a star performer. There are people who just can’t get it, can’t do it, don’t want to do it. And so you can’t obviously discuss that publicly.'” So say a couple of aides to Senator Rubio.
It’s pretty much impossible that I would vote for Senator Rubio at this point, but this isn’t really about him. I’m convinced the Republican party leadership and all its Washington people agree with the senator’s aides, even if they have the sense to keep quiet. This is what the Republican party leadership has become. They’d have done better to just become Democrats.
