RE: illegal immigration-how the democrats could regain power tomorrow
i'm not sure the practice of knowingly hiring illegal aliens falls within the parameters of free enterprise, if that's what you are saying.
From the point of view of a former employer, the competetive nature of business forces employers to keep costs down while competing with the price structure of the other guy. When the other guy cheats and hires labor that will take less for whatever reason, it forces the non cheater to depress his labor costs.
have you asked yourself why americans will not take certain jobs? is it pride? is it laziness? No, human nature is all about motivation. When these relativly low paying jobs are kept that way artificially, americans with a higher standard of living than the illegals will not likely take them.
Ultimately, I could read the writing on the wall. I closed up shop rather than fall into the trap of having to cheat or pay my employees less than they were worth.
