TO THE EDITOR: They are here “To do the work that Americans don’t want to do,” according to the elite ruling class in politics, banking and business.
Should we accept the premise that one out of every 10 Americans (or one in four young people) is unwilling to accept anything below their personal career goal to remain unemployed? Whatever happened to the American initiative, “I get knocked down, but I get back on the horse”? Many of us realize that there is more to the immigration story than what we are told.
The elite rulers have decided that trucks from Mexico, driven by Mexicans, should be allowed to move freight within the United States. This program is very close to implementation. The Department of Transportation is working hard to figure out how to bend the rules to allow mechanically unsafe equipment, driven by unqualified drivers, without being drug tested and unable to communicate in English full access to the same highways that your wife drives the kids to school on.
I am sure the elites have to allow this because driving a truck is something that “Americans don’t want to do.” But wait. I know many professional commercial drivers, including myself, that actually do want our jobs. Should we do the bidding of the elites and maintain their targeted profit percentages while increasing their global market share at the expense of our standard of living?
Americans cannot compete globally with China, India, etc., when they earn as little as 84 cents/hour or Mexican drivers earning 1/3 as much. The elite ruling class of bankers, corporate CEOs and politicians cleverly met the challenge by leaving the borders open, allowing a flood of cheap labor access to American jobs and welfare, funded in part by those who are now unemployed. Is your job next?
