I’ve run into two business owners this week who can’t expand because, in their words, “no one wants to work”.

They can’t find anyone to do the job. Simple labor with a week or two training curve.

Fat ass lazy Americans.

That’s alright, the new underclass being imported will be the same way in due time. And they will vote wholesale for Democrats.

Reid is one of my senators. After seeing some of his comments about how "I'm trying to fight for the middle class", I wrote him. My question: what have you done in the Senate to encourage people to be able to work, to reduce the Tax Code by JUST ONE PAGE, to get able-bodied citizens out of their parents' basements?

Crickets

So, seeing that our President is about to make it even harder for those youthful citizens with crushing student loans -- and NO EMPLOYMENT -- to find jobs to pay off the student loans, I weep.

Anyone advising GOP congressional candidates would do well to counsel them: “If you get a ‘gotcha’ question on Obama, immigration and executive orders, just say,
‘Well, most Americans were vehemently opposed to the Affordable Care act too, but the Democrats pushed it through and look (here, clear your throat) look how well it’s done!’
“Then stop talking.”

I’ve been in several related technical fields in the last few decades. It’s not just entry level; mid-level and high-level technicians and managers have very low self-expectations and careless attitudes, not to mention general illiteracy.

Entry-level employees rarely want to show up every day and simply won’t leave their smartphones alone.

That said, the truth is that bringing in millions of Third-Worlders isn’t going to solve the problem, as they quickly learn that government handouts are easier than doing a job. And they know they can vote themselves an easier life.

“no one wants to work”. Fat ass lazy Americans.

Illegals in the workforce began driving down the average prices for labor in this country decades ago. It's now gotten so bad, that Americans won't even consider working in trades that historically paid well enough to sustain a family and live the American Dream.

If Americans are fat and lazy, it's because they've been driven into that debased condition by unfair competition in the workplace.

And who allowed, and even promoted this? Socialist Democrats, of course -- only recently aided and abetted by liberal Republicans.

What about the apathy that the higher level techs probably succumb to when they see same level and above doing this as well as grades below them? Seriously, it is pretty difficult to watch people with less technical knowledge and hands-on experience than you get promoted over you when they are doing a lot less and not cop an attitude about it.

In most cases (and I’m talking about nearly every job I’ve held in my entire life) loafers are allowed to loaf and prosper and doers are saddled with ever greater responsibility with lackluster remuneration in comparison to the workload/responsibility level of the loafers.

If you make dumb people feel dumber, it does tend to generate fear and anxiety as well as shorten careers when the dumb person feeling slighted is your manager.

that said, I am sure there are plenty of people who just don’t want to work to begin with regardless of their level of ability to do so.

Yes there are many fat ass lazy Americans but it’s hard to believe that nobody wants to work when so many are looking and having trouble finding work. Maybe the business owners don’t want to pay the wages required to live on these days.

A few years ago I, and many others, got laid off from a major tech corp., in my area, as I was let go they were in process of renewing several H1-B visas for others in the group who were no more capable than I was, but they were younger.

There should be more effort put into retraining people forced into a career change rather than simply opening the gates even further.

Everything you say is true, and all the more reason why ‘guest workers’ won’t solve anything.

And all the more reason to allow the free market to work. Only way to punish companies run by stupid people instead of rewarding them at the hand of government.

...because he doesn’t give a damn about Americans.

As a fellow FREEPer says, “Pray America wakes up”.

We need to repent of our own sins, and turn back to God.

This wickedness enveloping us may be His judgement; and those of us who are believers must stand with the Truth. Pray for strength to do that.

The GOPe is on board because their Chamber of Commerce money donors want it. But they don't want to have to vote for it...because they're scared shitless of their base.

If Obama does it, they get what they want -- but don't have to pay a political price.

The new underclass is already here (with or without papers); I suspect while showing dirty Guatemalan children in the campaign to push for this we’ll instead get even more Asians to take middle-class jobs.
