60. I keep trying to tell everybody CHEAP ASS EMPLOYERS
are the problem, not the immigrants they're exploiting.

We need to raise the minimum wage--a LOT. 87% of Americans agree with this. Forced to pay a wage that people can actually live on, most employers would prefer to hire folks who speak their language and have the proper paperwork, not that the risk for hiring illegals is great in such an antilabor climate.

I'd like to see the focus on CHEAP ASS EMPLOYERS, fine them and jail them according to the maximum penalty for each illegal alien they're found to have hired. Fat chance of that until we get rid of the GOPs and the DLC.

Exploitation is ugly, no matter who it's happening to.
