We Don’t Want Them, Except…..

Throughout western Europe and the United States there are politicians demanding an end to immigration because foreigners are taking jobs from native born folk. A new report in the Netherlands notes immigrant labor is vital to many sectors of the economy like farming and a host of “dirty jobs” that native born people refuse to accept because they prefer jobs that do not dirty their hands. The report argues without immigrant labor the Netherlands will not be able to maintain a vibrant economy.

Sorry Mitt and Sarah and conservative Republicans, but few native born Americans want to pick fruit in the fields of California or pick up trash in your local city. Europe and America need  people who will do the work of those born to only work with mind.

Just remember, the USA leads the world in obesity so it is doubtful if one third of the population could even bend over to pick lettuce!
