The 2,000-page omnibus spending bill released by the Senate Wednesday morning contains a secret provision that many senators hope unemployed blue-collar workers won’t find out about.
“This provision would quadruple the number of H-2B visas for low-skilled foreign “guest workers.” It would allow more than a quarter-of-a-million foreign workers to enter the U.S. each year and work in the construction industry, hotel-motel services, truck drivers, food processing, forestry and many other fields that don’t require a college education.”
In other words, as wages have declined for the last thirty-five years, members of congress have decided US wages need to decline further. In other words, immigration is largely used by the US government to regulate wages downward. If a job cannot be exported, the US government will make it easier for employers to lower wages.
A vote on the spending bill is expected late Thursday night, possibly after midnight, sources on the Hill told WND.
