Posted on 06/09/2014 1:58:26 PM PDT by Menehune56
Some of the nation's leading businesses are prodding lawmakers to act on immigration legislation as the issue enters a critical phase on Capitol Hill. In a letter to be released Tuesday, the chief executives of Coca-Cola, McDonald's, Loews Hotels, Tyson Foods, Cargill and a half-dozen other national and regional companies write that without action to overhaul ineffective immigration laws and allow lower-skilled workers into the country legally, their businesses cannot ensure the workforce they need.

SHUT DOWN THE BORDER.
Enforce ALL existing laws.
Wait 5 years.
Then we can talk.
agitprop from AP
So these business are admitting that they need illegal aliens to fill job slots because they are not willing to pay a livable wage for an American? Basically admitting they abuse the illegals??
What arrogant asshats.
I’d retweet you iffin I could.
“they are not willing to pay a livable wage for an American? Basically admitting they abuse the illegals??”
Which just shows you where big business places its priorities, not with the American worker but with making additional profits on the backs of immigrants.
Coca-Cola, McDonald’s, Loews Hotels, Tyson Foods, Cargill can stick it up their @#^%&^.
We’ve got more than enough low-skilled labor available sitting around drawing welfare.
Just what you want at McDonalds....some illegal alien with scabbies handling your food which, by the way, doesn’t taste as good as it once did. To hell with these companies that want to sell out America to invaders.
Are they claiming that of all the millions of unemployed citizens, none of them are willing to flip burgers?
But if they make the illegals eligible to work, then they won’t be in hiding and the businesses will have to pay regular wages and benefits.
A Chinese-American friend of mine, who emigrated here, played by the rules, and became a citizen with great effort and considerable cost, asked my why Americans don’t go on a “general strike”. I did not have a good answer for this.
No worries corporate America, and the Chamber of Commerce- Obama’s self directed humanitarian crisis with illegals will push amnesty over the top for you.
I see some of the liberals on twitter pushing a “Jan Brewer’s concentration camps” meme.
Never let a good crisis go to waste...
It does surprise me, that unions and conservatives (NOT Republicans - conservatives) can’t find some common ground on this issue.
Greedy biz owners demand more dirt cheap labor...
Threaten to withhold big contributions for politicians unless they continue to flood the country with an endless conga-line of cheap labor...
Profits regardless of consequences.
Nothing else matters.
Ever seen what happens to a FReeper who says a kind word about a union member? Personally I’ll take any ally I can get on specific issues.
In fact if I were in John Dingell’s district, I would definitely vote for the UAW member. He’s a conservative republican closer to the tea party than the establishment. He was also a mover and shaker behind right to work in Michigan. He doesn’t mention it on his campaign website (its the Ann Arbor district after all) but I know he has spoken out about the damage done by uncontrolled immigration.
His capitol hill testimony against union political fundraising.
It never was about lower wages. It’s about vanities, personal abuses and being connected with government to prevent domestic competition from rising.
