I didn't say that and your concern is touching. Where it not for illegal below market labor he would still have a job. I don't understand why so many religious people are so quick to throw their own people to the wolfs, simply for a little extra profit. Perhaps he will find more work, perhaps he and his wife will now have to work to make ends meat and if that happens she will no longer be there as much as she should to raise her kids. The last 30 years has shown that that is a BAD IDEA and is one of the leading factors in creating all these troubled kids we have these days.
But it did result in profit, so I guess it all balances out in the end.
Why don't all you church-going people pool your resources, and fund your neighbor so he can start his own Construction company, hire American born locals at union wage, and compete for the building business against the obviously unskilled, unqualified immigrant competition? It should be a breeze. Shouldn't it?
Lots of people have lost jobs,throughout the history of this nation,for various reasons.As a matter of fact,job safety is a relatively "new" idea to hit this nation and dates from around the late 1940s.OTOH,job loss was a constant worry,throughout most of this nation's history! Throughout the mid 1800s through four decades of the 20th century,people were thrown out of jobs for NO reason at all and new immigrants hired for much lower salaries.
