Companies lay off thousands, lobby for millions more immigrant workers
Companies are laying off workers and demanding more immigrant labor. We know who they are. Tell others.
The letter to Speaker Boehner and Minority Leader Pelosi, signed by over 100 corporate interests, says corporate America can't afford to wait for more immigrant workers at all skill levels. The companies are listed on the letter.
Jon Feere of The Center for Immigration Studies also lists the companies on his blog, "Cheesecake Factory, Hallmark, Disney, and Others Now Pushing Amnesty." Feere writes: The number of working-age (16 to 65) native-born Americans who are not working -- unemployed or out of the labor market -- stood at 57.5 million in the second quarter of 2013. The unemployed population is spread throughout the labor market and includes 25 million with no more than a high school education, 16 million with some education beyond high school, and nine million with at least a bachelor's degree.
Mark Krikorian is, one by one, tweeting out the twitter handle of each company demanding a doubling of immigration while 20 million Americans who want full-time work can't find full-time jobs.
In "Companies lay off thousands, then demand immigration reform for new labor," Byron York of The Examiner reports the number of workers many of the companies have recently laid off. He writes In all, it's fair to say a large number of the corporate signers of the letter demanding more labor from abroad have actually laid off workers at home in recent years. Together, their actions have a significant effect on the economy. According to a recent Reuters report, U.S. employers announced 50,462 layoffs in August, up 34 percent from the previous month and up 57 percent from August 2012.
The Senate has already caved to corporate demands for an alternative to hiring U.S. workers. Now these companies want the House to finish the job.
