Jeff Crosby on immigration
Jeff Crosby describes how our current immigration policies are making jobs worse for everyone, including legal residents and citizens.
With ICE stepping up enforcement, employers are getting rid of their permanent staff and hiring from temp agencies instead. That way, the employer isn't legally responsible for hiring undocumented worker. Also, if ICE happens to snatch up a large percentage of your staff on any given day, the temp agency will just send more.
Temp jobs are worse than the permanent positions they are replacing. Temporary workers get paid less and get fewer benefits than staffers doing the same work.
In other words, ICE is taking people's jobs!
