This would help benefit businesses because if workers were to go on strike, they wouldn’t have to stop or slow down production. Immigrants would just replace the strikers. Although immigration was somewhat beneficial to the United States, several people opposed it. Many immigrants were thought to be inferior to Americans. They were described as weak, broken,
Another reason people like to defend Wal-Mart is because they have better prices than most everyone else which is easier on peoples wallets. Wal-Mart has become such a household name that most people will shop there without checking out other business when they realistically could be spending a little extra pocket change and helping their economy and help control this giant corporation. The savings people get are on account of cheap foreign goods that aren’t as good as American goods and people don’t realize it because they just remember the good deals. In my opinion there aren’t any other reasons to defend
The cost of these illegal immigrants is high and with the economic situation we’re currently in, we can’t afford any additional expenses. However, there is a slight benefit to illegal immigrants. They are still consumers and they consume U.S. goods and, contrary to many people’s ideas, most do pay
Immigrants obtain jobs that many Americans are too good to do such as lawn care, maintenance in the home or business, and farm work. Immigrants often get paid very little; they are very hard workers because they are usually very poor and come to America to make a better life for themselves and their families. The con’s of illegal immigrants is that they work off the books and do not contribute to social security or pay taxes. A majority of illegal immigrants rely on government assistance and this costs Americans a lot of money. New immigration reform laws have some good ways to gain control over illegal immigration; however, allowing more immigrants into the United States on top of the 11 million that are already here trying to obtain residency, is absurd.
Our country is currently experiencing a massive debt, and I do not think it is appropriate solely looking at the issue in a factual manner that we allow illegal immigrants into our society or work place. Another major response to this issue is that these illegal immigrants are doing extremely beneficial work in the United States that many others will not do, and if we prohibit them from doing so than much of that work may not get done. However, just because these illegal immigrants are willing to do this hard work for next to nothing in potentially dangerous working conditions does not make it okay for us to allow them to do it. Not only do possibly dangerous and unsafe working conditions impose harm
America Outsourcing. By Dwayne Berry This paper will walk through many of things that go on in America. Outsourcing jobs is one of the main things that are not helping America grow as a greater nation. Outsourcing jobs are taking away from us “AMERICANS” who have tried to work hard with what we are giving. The outsourcing of jobs is not a bad thing for the company because it makes them more money, but for the people who don’t have what young people talk about as bank!
A good plan to get rid of illegal immigrants in the U.S. will remove illegal immigrants in a very feasible way, and would not cost our country a fortune. Illegal immigrants have been a problem lingering in the U.S. for many years now. In the recent past, Americans just started noticing how illegal immigrants living in the U.S. can cause many problems. A shocking statistic is that 1/3 of all federal and state prisons are filled with illegal immigrants. The problem with this is that it is costing American tax payers $1.6 billion annually.
However, because foreigners are willing to work for less money, it gives them a more adept position in the American economy and working force, regardless of their education. Therefore, the abundance of labor creates a shortage of jobs which in turn leads to a “rough estimate that suggested that as many as 42 million jobs, or nearly one-third of the nation's total, were susceptible to offshoring” (Gosselin, pg 2). In essence, it doesn’t matter how much you know, but rather how little you will work for. The Social Problems textbook states that “the globalization of the economy is not a neutral process. Decisions are based on what will maximize profits, thus serving the owners of capital, and not necessarily workers or the communities where factories are located” (Social Problems, pg 427).
"Low skilled immigration greases the wheels of the U.S labor market," economist George Borjas accurately describes 21st Century America. Today, our country is a diverse nation filled and dependent upon immigrants, whether they are properly documented or not. The United States benefits from all immigrants, both legal and illegal, but there are Americans who object the idea of illegal immigration. There is a common perception that illegal immigrants are sucking up the benefits of the government and taking American's jobs, but the reality is that America is benefitting more from illegal immigrants because they are contributing immensely to society. Since illegal immigrants contribute to America by paying taxes, working hard- labor jobs, and restricting
The problem in today’s government is that they worked very well with the top class and not so much the lower and middle class. The government tends to favor the top class over all the others, and that isn’t right because they have everything all ready and don’t need to work to survive, unlike the people that need to sell their labor to survive in this nation. The top 400 richest people together on tax returns make average around 202 million. That is a crazy amount of money, think of all the better things it could go towards, homeless people, school system, Medicare/Medicade, and getting rid of the huge debt that America has sunken them selves into. Another huge issue is the whole unemployment rate.
