Skip to comments.Wall Street Journal: Florida Needs Illegal Aliens to Fill Low-Wage U.S. Jobs
Posted on 07/08/2023 11:43:08 AM PDT by proust
The Wall Street Journal editorial board is slamming Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) for signing a sweeping mandatory E-Verify bill into law that prevents industries across the state from hiring illegal aliens over Americans and legal immigrants.

Oh, no, companies might have to pay market wages now that they have the ability to break to law to pay cheaper wages taken away. Lower profits and higher prices will result, but without illegals there will be fewer of the niños to teach at over $10k per year and fewer free patients at hospitals so taxes and paid hospital bills should drop.
It is impossible to know how this will turn out. It is certainly daring.
ABOLISH welfare and watch what happens with these jobs
My buddy’s son got to his construction job in Tallahassee the day DeSantis’ job protection bill took effect. The site was eerily quiet. Of the 60 framers three where there. A week later, a full team of English speakers was completing the job. So, apparently, there were enough “natives” to do the job. And, they wanted the jobs.
I have a friend who is now a citizen. He’s from Nicaragua. He hates illegals. He had to pretend to be illegal to get a job. They wouldn’t hire him if he was legal. He had a green card at the time. The reason is, they don’t pay illegals overtime, time and a half, or the required benefits.
Short-term worker visas with very strict enforcement works quite well in many countries to provide needed lower paying job workers…. Hong Kong has such a program and there are over half a million workers there on contracts lasting up to two years. But if the job or the contract ends, they must be out of the country in 14 days or risk imprisonment.
Put in a system of workfare. If you’re unemployed but can still fog a mirror, you work for the local govt. It might be cleaning toilets, sweeping the street...whatever, but the point is you work from 8 to 5. If you don’t, no transfer payments of any kind (i.e., rent subsidies, food stamps, welfare, medicaid, etc.) The European experience is that those people quickly learn that, if they have to work anyway, the might as well look for a better job. Also, fail a drug test and you lose your benefits, too.
Democrats are hustling the electoral system by sending all the
illegals to red states and swing states if the Bolsheviks lose this election the party is dead.
So, we should reward unvetted illegals for their illegal entry with a job to incentivize more to come. If there is a shortage, why don’t we expedite legal applicants on the waiting list who agree to take the jobs?
OYstir, here in Port Saint Lucie Florida there is a giant building boom as so many folks are arriving here from over taxed blue states.
A month ago the Florida legislature passed the e-verify law requiring busunesses with more than 20 employees tohave to verify the person is legal to work here.
I would say one in four construction workers quit and most have left the state and went to places without legal requirements.
Wouldn’t want to train or hire poor Americans. Let’s keep our citizens F’d up because obviously they are beyond help?
That said, I'm sure we here in Florida will manage to survive without the migrant hordes that are now spread across America. We have plenty here already. The new arrivals can go to Martha's Vineyard or California.
The Wall Street Journal has always been a unrelenting advocate for mass migration. A leader of the Cheap Labor Express.
Yep. I live about 60 miles from you. It is going to be very interesting how this plays out. Very daring move. Disruption will happen
What you described is actually federal law. Of course it is never enforced beyond Kabuki.
jorge busho's "cheap labor express." Creep.
Either I-9 & E-Verify are the law-——or they are not.
As a Payroll Supervisor, I handled plenty of I-9’s.
Couldn’t have hired my brother without such a document and correct supporting papers.
Dems planned the socialist normalization by getting people used to welfare without work requirements (Obama’s jobs guy remembered saying he will get to work on matching recipients to job offer categories and Obama’s assistant told him “No, not any more. The President does not want any work requirements. Just get the funds linked to them and send them.”
Then Covid meant extensions of unemployment and welfare.
So long as WE work hard and pay taxes....
Now, sitting at home smoking dope and watch TV or playing video games is much better than working for a living.
Yeah. I wouldn’t do this if I’m DeSantis.
