Many companies play the game this way. “I didn’t hire the illegals...the contractor did it!” Once busted, these “temp” agencies just reform (like acorn) using a different name. These Mexicans bust their ass for $7.50-$8 an hour with no raises even after years of service and if they complain about anything they get replaced by the thousands desperate for work. Low educated black and white citizens, who used to get these type of jobs, are the ones who suffer for it.

Close.

But not quite right.

Many companies (and government agencies) contract out for services. And they take the low bidder.

And many of these companies (agencies) don't write these little details in the terms and conditions of the contract. Why? The more terms, the more expensive, as you say.

Low educated black and white citizens, who used to get these type of jobs, are the ones who suffer for it.

Again, close, but not quite right.

In my state (the people's democratic republic of Maryland), I can get paid $473 per week for sitting on my a$$. That doesn't include food stamps, subsidized housing, and all the other perks (I found out about this during my brief period of unemployment when I was laid off of my last job -- no, I never drew any of it). BY ITSELF, that $473 a week works out to $11.82 per hour. A lot more than minimum wage.

So why should I go out to a back-breaking job when I can make more money sitting on my a$$.

That welfare state is what is hurting the lower-educated blacks and whites that would historically take this kind of job.

Don’t feel bad for the foriegn illegal criminals, feel bad for the Americans and their families that they are stealing work and money from.
