Illegal Immigrants have crushed the construction industry. My first day in construction, 26 years ago, I was making $8.50 an hour. Today when you first start you will be making $10.50 an hour. Doesn't seem like much of difference does it? This was caused by illegals coming in and taking our jobs for much cheaper. The reason no one wants to do construction work is that the pay is so low. It should be much higher. In my opinion these guys should make $20 to $25 an hour, not $12 or $15 for guys who have been doing it a long time.
Another crisis is the home building industry. It makes much more financial sense to buy an existing home for half the price of a new one. This is a huge dilemma for the home builders, so they have to find a way to build these homes for much cheaper. Cut every corner and hire cheap labor, so they are in favor of illegal immigration.
We are on a slippery slope here, maybe if we give them amnesty they can all become reporters and work for a third of what the guy who wrote this article was paid. They can all become attorneys and work for a third of a third.
If these business owners think that this will help they are mistaken.
