I think Obama’s make work program will be all union jobs. It’s all skilled labor and heavy machinery.
The stoop work illegals like the shovel ready make work, because like most Kenyans, that is all they are capable of.
Ever wonder why Mexico or Kenya didn’t build a space shuttle of their own?
Let me guess: Because THEY will get most of the jobs?
How'd I do?
If you look at the numbers of jobs that all of these supposed “stimulus” packages are supposed to create, we would have to double the population of the United States in order to have a labor pool big enough to fill all of those jobs; IF the numbers were anywhere near real in the first place, which they are not.
So who is going to do all of this “Infrastructure” construction work?? Does anyone really believe that former Mortgage Brokers, Bankers, and Reporters are all going to decide to join the local Union and go vibrate concrete for a career now??
Oh yeah...none of those jobs are going to last long enough to provide a career for anyone, and the direct Government sponsored Union favoritism will probably kill off what’s left of the private construction business anyway.
Once his programs are passed through environmental lobbyists and local zoning laws and what else we can think of, the sheer numbers of people he MIHT need for a large project aren’t going to come from displaced Americans, I surely doubt
He will encourage illegal aliens to work on manual labor jobs, claiming that Americans wont do such work
even those who are unemployed
“At a time when illegals are beginning to go home in significant numbers, a federal magnet project like this will actually draw fleeing illegal workers back...”
But don’t you know! That’s the whole idea. He won’t be re-elected by genuine citizens the next time around because his real policies will be apparent, like uncontrolled immigration from third-world nations.
They already are. It's amazing that so many are willing to accept millions of invaders into their home country.
Yes and States like MD and Cities like Baltimore passed living wage acts that do not allow the government to lower costs by subcontracting out work. They require union wages paid by all subcontractors, so the 1T is for union wages to illegals, much better than the housing boom.
I believe that even the WPA was limited to CITIZENS, not aliens, legal or illegal.
I wonder what impact, if any, all these “remittances” from illegals to foreign countries has on our economy. And how would any “stimulus” stimulate America’s economy if much of the money is not spend in the US? It just sounds like buying votes to me.
Too bad the liberal language masters haven’t deemed KEEPING the income I earn an “entitlement.”
The implication that illegal aliens will get bailout money is misinformed and outdated. After January 20, there will not be any illegal aliens. Problem solved!
All of the “infrastructure” money will ne spent on environmental studies and law suits before one wheel barrow is filled.
Illegals are rebuilding New Orleans why not the rest of America?
I expect a return of many that left because of the lack of work to “rebuild America “.
I can not believe that these leaders will sell America for votes. ...
