Now I ask you patriots, why should this be happening anywhere in the United States, never mind California. These liberal ( socialist ) outcasts who through the years have been telling laborers in our country not to worry, just turn your heads the other way because illegals are just taking jobs most Americans dont want to labor in. What a crock of bull that turned out to be. You know as well as I do you give illegals a footing in our country and they will be hired to do a days work cheaper than the American worker and who is to blame for this I might ask? How about the businesses that hire them. I have heard business people in the past complain of the fact why should they become the governments watchdog on hiring illegal immigrants and I would answer because of the fact it is American company’s that are hiring them, I would say the smallest of the small companies to be able to afford the payroll but yet again there are your big construction company’s that have many projects going on at the same time who also fall in the loop of illegal hiring practices.
The following was posted by John Binder, published by Breitbart: “In an interview with the group Progressives for Immigration Reform, a whistleblower who was an independent contractor throughout the 1980s and 1990s explains how the California construction industry transformed into one in which American men could make a middle-class living off blue-collar work to a business where wages have plummeted and illegal aliens dominate the field.”
“Blaine Taylor, the whistleblower, said the construction industry in California once offered a starting wage of about $45 an hour in the late 1980s. Fast-forward to 2018 — nearly two decades into when illegal aliens began flooding the industry — he now says that wages have fallen by more than half, standing at just $11 an hour.”
“TAYLOR: The reality is that a person that was hired as a laborer in 1988, I paid $15 an hour and within a month if I could leave him on the job alone, he got $20 an hour. If I hired somebody that already knew how to do certain types of labor or certain types of operations, they would get $20 an hour.”
“Now, the average wage in Los Angeles for construction workers is less than $11 an hour. They can’t go lower than the minimum wage. And much of that, if they’re not being paid by the hour at less than $11 an hour, they’re being paid per piece — per piece of plywood that’s installed, per piece of drywall that’s installed. Now, the subcontractor can circumvent paying them as an hourly wage and are now being paid by 1099, which means that no taxes are being taken out. [Emphasis added]”
Taylor continued to say that that the construction industry in California has been taken over by illegal immigrants and that they have taken over every trade in California. This is being allowed to happen. No political party is perfect but the Republican Party has been trying to stop this illegal immigration push for years now and as we see more of the situation in whatever news source we choose to follow except the mainstream media naturally we all know whats going on out there and yet the socialist Democratic party continue to be gung-ho on letting these illegals in and on top of that they justify sanctuary cities to protect the criminals of the bunch. We all must know by now it’s all for the vote and for the people who think not I will suggest you keep on thinking, it just might sink in some day.
This is such a complex problem and I will say there’s no other way out but to go for the employer it being in the construction field or any other for that matter that they have to follow our labor laws and that also means the pay-scales. If someone illegal is being paid under the table from his construction boss thats his employer and that employer has to follow the labor laws because what you see happening in California as this post shows what is not to say it’s not happening in other big states such as New York as an example and I do see a big crackdown in the future from President Trump on all this. I just cant imagine seeing him closing his eyes to this if he wants to make America great again, surely America will not become great again with millions of illegal immigrants cutting into our working men and women so I say to President Trump, go for it!
