I was reading some of the resources I use in my job and stumbled across an article about the large number of Mexicans returning to Mexico, either because they have been deported, or because they think they will be. This paragraph stood out to me:

In any case, the trend has sparked both hope and concern in Mexico. Many view the large numbers coming back as brimming with potential. Many returnees bring home English and other skills learned in the U.S. But others in Mexico are concerned; they fear unwanted competition for jobs, or worry that deportees sent home for committing crimes could worsen the country’s already high levels of violence.


They are worried about the same things that worry us.  But it's their people and they belong there.

That is so funny. 
  This was an argument that happened at my work.  I was under the impression that the more illegals here the worse the job market for us.
  So, when I made this statement I was told that nobody else was going to pick fruit for $3 and hour.  I said of course not.  I'll do it for $15 and hour that was promised in the minimum wage hike.  The reply given to me was that that's no good because it would raise the cost of fruit.  Well, no kidding!!
  Yet this person was someone that wanted a higher minimum wage. 
  This brought about another concern for me:  Aren't illegal aliens good enough to make $15?  Don't they deserve it?  So, the liberals want to keep prices cheep by having illegals here working for slave wages.  BUT, BY GOD, DONT HAVE ANY F%{£~>~€ SWEAT SHOPS IN ANOTHER COUNTRY.
  Liberalism is a mental disorder.

Good points you made about illegals being used as "slave labor"....

The problem I have with most liberals is that they don't seem "thoughtful".  They just repeat the mantra over and over as though they have been brainwashed. (or at least the ones I try to talk to) And, if you can ever get them talking they have the most condescending rudeness, ever.

You are sounding like a Liberal with the above statement.  No one is guaranteed anything.  Why are you paid what you are?  Is it because you are a good looking guy (No that is definitely not it Smiley ). It is because you fill a demand for that service.  I am good enough to make $100 dollars an hour, so are you.  That is not the criteria for hiring.  It is called Supply and Demand.  If the illegals did not pick fruit at $3, the price would go up.  But you knew that, I just had to elbow you in the ribs to remind you.   Smiley

Sorry.  It wasn’t a plea for more pay, it was a statement on how liberals don’t think equality when it comes to others.  The fact that they want to keep their prices low by having illegals here.

What astonishes me is the liberals never see the fallacy. They always claim that nobody wants to pick fruit for low wages. Who does? If fewer people show up to work for four dollars an hour, increase the wages. Yeah, the cost of fruit will probably go up, too. Can't have it all your way. The market will sort it out.
