There is no point in my trying to hack through all of the fodder

But I would like to say this. Let us similarly dismiss all of the
argumentation of my last posting.
If U.S. manufacturers offer fifty cents per hour to Mexicans to work
in factories in Mexico, then there will be plenty of takers who are
quite satisfied with that offer and who will not be willing to take
any risks to throw their lives into upheaval to cross the U.S.
Meanwhile, there will be other, more tenacious Mexicans who will
jump at the chance to jump the border and work for $9.00 per hour
as concrete laborers (for example). There will be employers here
who will be happy to hire illegals at $9.00 per hour because the
going rate for U.S. residents is $12.00 per hour + benefits or
There can be ever increasing traffic in both directions FOR THE
[FALLACIOUS] "BENEFIT" OF HAVING CHEAP LABOR, and if I could under-
stand jwas' last posting, maybe I trounced his argumentation.
Somebody is going to have to help me out here.
If anyone would like a free email copy of the multipart
treatise on the downward wage equalizing effects of
equal employment opportunity, send a brief request to:
This treatise is chock-full of ideas for papers in
the areas of economics, political science, sociology,
psychology, management, law, etc.
Hurry while the penet remailer is still forwarding email
to the "na" form of addresses!
"Government enforced wage equalization will work only in the
downward direction" - despite any initial appearance to the
contrary! And believe it or not, the least preferred job
candidate doesn't even have to be awarded a job for many
phenomena to take place!
