Obama and Cheap Foreign Labor – The Real Story

On January 30th, Obama told a woman that her husband shouldn’t be unemployed from the growth he has seen in the economy. Obama said he finds it “interesting” because he is getting “the word” that someone in her husband’s job field “should be able to find something right away.” This has become a familiar theme where Obama said in his SOTU address, “I also hear from many business leaders who want to hire in the United States but can’t find workers with the right skills.” He went on to say, “Growing industries in science and technology have twice as many openings as we have workers who can do the job. Think about that — openings at a time when millions of Americans are looking for work. That’s inexcusable. And we know how to fix it.”

What Obama is saying comes from a manufactured myth that there is a shortage of skilled workers, and that a supposed “skill-gap” is hurting our economy. Like the fraudulent assertion that illegal aliens take jobs that Americans won’t do, this is a ploy to displace American workers with cheap foreign labor.

And now… the rest of the story. …..
