Ah yes... I understand your complaints...but let us look at the brighter side... Companies locate to Texas (low wages, you bet) but that is the result of too many unskilled workers applying for low skilled jobs (natural result of bring in many unskilled workers). Unfortunately, Texas in on the border of Mexico and gets many illegals looking for work. Yes, wish for a better system of vetting them but it is what is is.
The result is a productive force of workers (illegals included) that provide benefits to the State and the Nation as a whole. Not ideal but does benefit all.
Now before you get yourself all wrapped up in your knickers...I believe that all companies should do ID verification before hiring any of these folks. Unfortunately, the low cost labor will always be those that ignore the rules. (welcome to Obama and crowd).
I doubt that much will change lately but it will eventually edge toward a law abiding group I hope. If not, we are lost anyway so enjoy the slow changes toward socialism.
Pie in the sky...
Low wage workers contribute to jammed hospitals, choked off social services, drug/alcohol issues up the ying yang, crime etc, with demands for more schools, jails, cops, taxes....you get it.
Sure they might be more productive short term for the greedy unscrupulous who hire them, but what's that get the communities, in the long run who eventually are forced to pick up the tab?
Watch it...Profits regardless of consequences can destroy entire regions, cities and entire states.
