MONTERREY, Mexico - Standing in the baking sun outside the U.S. Consulate in Monterrey, hundreds of Mexicans wait anxiously for temporary work visas. But even before they were fingerprinted and interviewed for the permit, many had already paid recruiters thousands of dollars in hopes of easing the way.
Supplying the U.S. guestworker program is a complex and sometimes criminal network of foreign recruiters who extort money from poor migrants and then keep them on the job by forcing them into debt or threatening their families back home.
Employers also are often at the recruiters' mercy, forced to accept workers who could be desperately in debt or simply wrong for the job.
And when their brief glimpse of the American dream becomes a nightmare, some legal guest workers simply disappear, melting into the growing U.S. population of illegal immigrants.
Press 2 for English.
There isn't a job in America that Americans wont do!...PERIOD!...
The problem is wages!!!...Its the other half of the “SUPPLY AND DEMAND” equation...With demand for labor wages are supposed to rise or market efficiencies take its place!
