[COMMENT: Like the response, "Well, your insurance will pay for it"; or "We get a free lunch at school". Or, "My company is paying part of my medical insurance..." All nonsense. All those costs are passed onto the consumer.
Those employers who want cheap labor want the taxpayer to foot the bill. Thank you, socialism!
For a course in economics, get the "Fair Tax Book" at Amazon or some other place. Simple and to the point. E. Fox]
"The phrase "cheap labor" is a myth, a farce, and a lie. There is no such thing as "cheap labor."
Take, for example, an illegal Mexican who sneaks in here with his wife and five children. He takes a job for five or six dollars an hour. At that wage with six dependents he pays no income tax, yet at the end of the year gets an "earned income credit" of up to $3,200 free. He qualifies for Section 8 housing and subsidized rent, food stamps, and free (no deductible, no co-pay) health care. His children get free breakfasts and lunches at school, and require bi-lingual teachers and books that taxpayers provide. He doesn't have to worry about car insurance, life insurance, or homeowners insurance. Taxpayers provide Spanish language signs, bulletins, and printed material. He cannot be fired, harassed, or sued.
He and his family receive the equivalent of $20 to $30 an hour in benefits, while working Americans are lucky to have $5 or $6 an hour left after paying their bills and his, and paying for increased crime, graffiti, and trash cleanup.
