American workers are losing their jobs and the future doesn’t look good either. Nothing personal. It’s just that they get paid “too much” and U.S. corporations can’t compete with the slave shops in Asia and other hell holes of the world. So they have a policy of replacing Americans with third worlders.
Since cheap labor is an essential part of globalization, a growing number of American transnational corporations don’t consider American citizens as potential employees. Think about that. American citizens are being shut out from earning a living by American corporations and our elected representatives, who vote to raise the limits on work visas. This policy has been actively pursued for several decades. It’s permanent.
These Mexican invaders in the photo are standing on American soil, most likely working for an American company and telling Americans that they don’t belong here. Signs like these and frequent violence against Americans are common in parts of the Southwest. And many places give these criminals sanctuary.
Announcing the latest American company to flee the United States:
Whirlpool closed its Indiana plant and moved to Mexico. If the economy starts to recover, there will be few jobs for Americans when you have a cheap work force next door. It started with Bush. Now Obama is working with the same game plan. In the near future the words “middle class” will be obsolete.
“Whirlpool’s plant in Evansville, In, finally closed its doors (July 3, 2010)…signifying the end of more than a half century’s worth of production. America lost 1100 workers to Mexico.
“The manufacturer of household appliances said in August of last year that it would be shutting the factory in mid-2010 and moving its refrigerator and freezer production to Mexico.”
Those jobs are now in Mexico, where the wages are much lower and often don’t include benefits. For example, General Motors builds vehicles at their modern plants south of the border where the top pay for auto workers, as of 2008, was $3.50 per hour. Yes. Ford and Chrysler are there also.
Whirlpool said that the relocation was necessary to streamline operations. (Translation – cheap labor)
A commissioned study found “the ripple effect caused by the closure could bring about more than 1,500 additional jobs lost in Indiana; a loss of $138 million in income; and a decline in tax revenues of $17.7 million, particularly in property, sales and income taxes. Additionally, it is estimated that Unemployment Insurance Benefits for displaced Whirlpool employees would cost approximately $4.15 million. When tax losses and Unemployment Insurance costs are combined, it creates an estimated taxpayer cost of $21.8 million in Indiana.” (But the corporation made a nice profit and that’s all that counts.)
CEOs, be it man or woman, have no loyalty to their country. Their loyalty is to their corporation and employees, wherever they may be located globally. Their partnership with governments is strictly for their benefit. And many American workers have become unwelcome in their own country. They are essentially invisible, with no future.
“A policy that limits too many smart people (Indians) coming to the United States is questionable.” Bill Gates, CEO Microsoft, April 28, 2005.
Bob Galvin, CEO of Motorola, 1987: “It’s no contest. We’re in the business to make a buck. American labor can’t compete.”
A Mexican H-2B worker, Elizalde-Luna, said: “Companies don’t want to pay high salaries to American workers, so they recruit Hispanics who will work hard for less pay. The wages though, are still much greater than in Mexico.”
Business leaders say they want to hear what the government’s policy will be toward corporations before they decide to add more workers. That aside, this is the bottom line:
Corporations don’t want to hire more workers, if possible. And if they do hire, they don’t want to pick Americans when cheap foreign labor has been very kind to them for several decades. They simply move their operations to places (offshoring) where a cheap and docile work force will toil for pennies per hour, up to 90 hours a week with no benefits.
That’s why we have so many unemployed people and the reason why American business has no plans to rehire Americans if they can send their factories out of the country or import foreign workers for temporary employment contracts. That includes farm labor, manufacturing, meat packing and construction jobs to Mexicans and hi-tech jobs to Asians, in particular India. Bill Gates says he wants all the H-1B visas he can get from Congress so he can continue replacing Americans with Indians. Oh. And now green jobs are being sent overseas.
Watch this video and see how law firms present seminars to corporations on How to Not Hire an American. All across America corporations are waging jihad on American citizens, firing them and replacing them with third world foreigners, in the process destroying their American dream, and sometimes, their life.
This war against American workers is continuing and those responsible (the leaders of Canada, Mexico and the United States) are in the process of forming a trading region of North America which will include the free flow of labor throughout the continent. And they are fully on board with the wage “adjustments” that are in the plans.
Obama, like his predecessor, George Bush, is having a difficult time trying to pass a comprehensive immigration bill through Congress that would guarantee a never-ending source of cheap labor. The current amnesty legislation, HR 4321, would be a death sentence for America. It would mandate a number of worker visas and other visas to allow millions of Mexicans in yearly plus legalize ten to twenty million illegals, many with false documents showing that they have been here the required amount of time. A lot of the processing would consist of pencil whipping the illegals toward citizenship. And no one is going to make them learn English. Why would they when Spanish will soon be the primary language in large parts of America.
HR 4321 also requires an outer perimeter for North America that would allow our mutual borders with Canada and Mexico to be relaxed so that inside that perimeter “the movement of people, products, and capital will be legal, orderly, and safe. Its goal will be to guarantee a free, secure, just, and prosperous North America. See pp. 3,8 at the CFR plan for Building a North American Community.
The U.S. Department of State article on the “North American Community” describes this road map for the integration of Canada, Mexico and the United States. You can access and print my copy from the State Department but you need to use the freedom of information act (FOIA) to obtain a copy from this State Department. There is a link at the bottom of the article that connects to the CFR plan for Building a North American Community.
The dots are connected from the State Department to the CFR plan, then to HR 4321. The link is the “common security perimeter” around North America. The CFR plan also praises Senator John Cornyn for his efforts in Dec. of 2004 toward this integration of North America. (See acknowledgments, page xix.)
Excerpts from Building a North American Community:
“To make the most of the impressive pool of skill and talent within North America, the three countries should look beyond the NAFTA visa system…A long-term goal should be to create a “North American preference’-new rules that would make it easier for employers to recruit across national boundaries within the continent…”
“Canada and the United States should consider eliminating restrictions on labor mobility altogether and work toward solutions that, in the long run, could enable the extension of full labor mobility to Mexico as well.” CFR plan, p.26
“To make companies based in North America as competitive as possible in the global economy, Canada and the United States should consider eliminating all remaining barriers to the ability of their citizens to LIVE and WORK in the other country. This free flow of people would offer an important advantage to employers in both countries by enabling them to move quickly to where their skills are needed. (Would the workers still be picked up at the Home Depot parking lot?)
“In the long term, the two countries should work to extend this policy to Mexico as well, though doing so will not be practical until wage differentials between Mexico and its two North American neighbors have diminished considerably.” CFR plan, pp. 26,27
(This, of course, is a clear statement of all three nations that the wages of all North American workers will be more uniform and much lower. If North American corporations hope to compete against the world and succeed, someone has to sacrifice. The American worker has been nominated to carry that burden. CEOs will also make use of global workers to fill contracts; engineers from India or nurses from Guatemala.)
That’s what these annual summits between Obama, Calderon of Mexico and Harper of Canada are about. President Calderon is enthusiastic for this integration of North America since Mexico will be the big winner:
“In the coming two decades, I envision the whole North American region as a single region (union) with a free market, not just in goods, services and investments, but a free labor market like the European Union.” [Calderon’s Open-Borders Agenda, George Putnam, Newsmax, September 22, 2006]
George Bush had a plan to use Mexicans to help pay for the 78 million baby boomers retiring over the next 40 years. He made an agreement with Mexico in 2004 to implement a totalization of Social Security agreement for Mexico and the United States but never signed it due to opposition in Congress. Bush wanted to combine the two systems so the Mexicans working in the U.S. and the Americans working in Mexico would have one retirement account.
He needed at least 60 million Mexicans in the U.S. to pay into Social Security for retirees. It would have been a disaster for the United States. But it looks like we are going to get it anyway. The U.S. Census Bureau (2008) has predicted that in less than 30 years we will have 100 million more inhabitants in our country.
Most of them will be from south of the border plus a high birth rate. They will be uneducated and speak a foreign language. And they do not like the “fact” that white Europeans “stole” their land. So now they have their own well-documented mission, a “manifest destiny,” to take back the land. And they are being aided by our leaders, such as George Bush, Barack Obama, John McCain, Lindsey Graham, Chuck Schumer, Hillary Clinton (She would be responsible for our portion of a common security perimeter for North America, along with Janet Napolitano. Read HR 4321.)
For a sample of the nightmare scenario rolling toward America, consider this:
(April 21, 2008) Half of the Los Angeles workforce are immigrants. ( most are illegal). “Los Angeles is at the leading edge of a U.S. demographic trend, with half of its workforce immigrants, many of them unskilled and speaking little English.
“As baby boomers retire, the same pattern will emerge across the country, the Los Angeles Times reported … Demographers estimate that by 2025 most of the growth in the workforce will be from immigrants.
“Ernesto Cortes Jr., Southwest regional director of the Industrial Areas Foundation, said Los Angeles is at a crossroads.
“The question is: Are we going to be a 21st century city with shared prosperity, or a third world city with an elite group on top and the majority at poverty or near poverty wages?…Right now we’re headed toward becoming a Third World city…”
Right now we have around 17 million unemployed in the U.S. and on the way to adding 100 million strangers to our land. Not citizens, just workers with no jobs and bad attitudes. The only words that come to my mind are, “It’s over.”
With 100 million more people depleting our resources and the forecast is for significant oil shortages by 2015, America’s very existence is in question. See “Warnings Persist: Serious Oil Shortages by 2015.”
“The social contract that has propelled this nation to greatness has never included a clause that suggests we are all interchangeable with the rest of humanity. When every person on Earth (or even in our hemisphere) has an equal claim on residence and employment in America, our existence as a nation will cease…
“However we choose to define a nation, it must be something more than an amalgamation of workers, consumers, or even taxpayers, who happen to occupy a defined geographic area.
“If the social bonds that hold a nation together are shattered, we will become slaves to destiny instead of masters of it. When people no longer believe that their nation and their society is loyal to them, social order will inevitably break down (and with it, ironically, the world’s economy itself).
“Far from promoting liberty and prosperity, a world without borders will inevitably lead to conflict, misery, and chaos, in other words, tyranny.” Grand Delusions-Open Borders will Destroy Society, Ira Melman.
