Did you ever finally have to decide?

April 12th, 2007

In today’s editorial urging that Wisconsin revamp its welfare system to actually provide government jobs to the chronically unemployed in Milwaukee’s inner city, discount viagra drugstore the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel‘s editorial board wrote:

“But the research paper itself shares with W-2 a fundamental flaw: a failure to grapple with the hard reality that there simply are not enough jobs to go around.

But…

…less than two weeks ago the same editorial board wrote :

“The current immigration system is broken. Needed is a system that regulates flow, viagra sales ed a system that allows employers to have the workers they need – doing work, advice in many instances, that Americans won’t do”

So which is it?

Do we have to put inner city folks on the public payroll because there aren’t enough jobs?

Or do we need to stop enforcing our immigration laws because we have more jobs than there are Americans willing to do them?

    I would say that it depends on what you call a job.

    There are plenty of jobs for the people who are willing to do them. Just a week ago, there was a news story about a black man who owns a very successful landscaping company in Virginia. He started the company 15 years ago so that he could employ blacks. Today all of his workers are Hispanic and he is hesitant to hire blacks. His reasoning is that blacks do not have the same work ethic as Hispanics. Immigrants find jobs easily since they are able to work under tough circumstances whereas many blacks would rather get benefits from the state than work in tough jobs. In other words, their are plenty of people making excuses for them so their is no reason for them to work.
