Jobs Americans won’t do

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.

  1. Good to see this. I am not quite sure what it means. If labor costs go up, product prices will go up, which means demand will go down, which means more people will be raising chickens in their backyards, which is what people used to do, back before raising chickens was industrialized. This might be a good thing. I must consult the spirits.

    1. One thing it might mean is less grilled chicken breast on the menu. That would be okay with me.

  2. Not to mention that a lot of uneducated, unemployed Americans would get decent-paying jobs and could feel that they were in charge of their own life again rather than depending on government assistance … actually, I guess that’s part of why the ruling class doesn’t want this to happen.

    1. Allowing a self-sufficient working class would lead to unemployment among DC (and state capital) bureaucrats. Ironic.

  3. It’s not just pay, it’s hassle; legalizing the illegals, unless they still work under the table, will just mean we “need” more illegals.

    1. Fortunately for the government-subsidized criminal enterprises that employ illegals, knowing that there will be periodic amnesties will encourage more illegal immigration.
