An American immigrant is not someone supported by government funds in a "relocation" center; flown over here at government expense; given a cash allowance, free housing, and medical care; and then eased onto local public assistance: Section 8 rental grants, food stamps, WIC, AFDC, clothes from one government-sponsored charity or another, Medicaid, and public schooling, with free lunch and breakfasts and even furniture. That's not an immigrant. That's a future Democrat voter. RICHARD F. MINITER
THE ENTIRE REASON FOR OBAMA’S AMNESTY HOAX IS TO KEEP WAGES
DEPRESSED WITH 40 MILLION NEW HEAVY BREEDING MEXICAN DEMS!
Despite Obama’s rhetoric about creating “decent-paying” and
“middle class” jobs, the reality is that his administration has made the
slashing of workers’ wages a deliberate goal, beginning with the 2009
restructuring of Chrysler and General Motors, in which Obama’s Auto Task Force
made the imposition of a 50 percent wage cut for new-hires the condition for
providing bailout funds to the US auto makers.Published by the International Committee of the
Fourth International (ICFI)
is the US economy adding too few jobs to make a significant dent in mass
unemployment, the vast majority of the new jobs that are being created are
part-time or temporary, and pay far less than those that were eliminated during
the 2008-2009 downturn.
lackluster total of 162,000 jobs added last month, a staggering two-thirds were
part-time, and most were in low-wage sectors, according to the latest US jobs
report, published last Friday by the Labor Department.
past four months, the US economy has added 791,000 new part-time jobs, but only
187,000 full-time jobs. This is despite the fact that part-time work makes up
less than 20 percent of all existing employment in the US.
percent of the jobs created so far this year have been in low-paying
industries, even though employment in these sectors constitutes less than 40
percent of total jobs in the US, according to an analysis by Moody’s Analytics.
The fastest job growth has been in retail sales, food preparation, freight and
warehouse work, wait staff, and home health care—positions that pay less than
$12 an hour.
Moody’s report noted that middle-income jobs have constituted less than 22
percent of new jobs added so far this year, while high-paying jobs have
amounted to less than 17 percent.
a result of the growth of low-wage employment, average hourly earnings fell by
two cents last month, to $23.98. This is on top of an enormous erosion of wages
over the past five years. Between 2007 and 2011, the US median household income
plunged by 11.6 percent, from $57,143 (in 2011 dollars) to $50,502, according
to Census Bureau figures.
report by the National Employment Law Project found that low-wage jobs, paying
between $7.69 and $13.83, constituted the majority of jobs created in the US
since the 2008 Wall Street crash. By contrast, medium-wage jobs—which made up
60 percent of the job losses during the economic downturn—represented only 22
percent of job growth during the “economic recovery.”
overwhelming growth of low-wage and part-time employment has contributed to a
significant increase of poverty and social distress.
month, the Associated Press reported that four in five Americans are
“economically insecure”—meaning they have had an income below 150 percent of
the poverty line, have been unemployed, or have relied on anti-poverty programs
such as food stamps for a year or more of their lives.
manufacturers, including General Motors, Volkswagen and BMW, have responded to
the 2008 downturn by vastly expanding their use of temporary labor.
Particularly in plants in the US South, such as Volkswagen’s Chattanooga,
Tennessee facility, auto makers carry out all new hiring for production jobs
through temporary agencies. These employees can be fired at will and without

percent of the American work force, 17 million people, are employed in
temporary jobs, the Associated Press reported last year. The number of
temporary jobs has increased by more than 50 percent since 2009, according to
Labor Department figures.
extraordinary growth of temporary employment is by no means a solely American
phenomenon. A report by England’s Chartered Institute of Personnel and
Development showed that more than one million workers in the UK have so-called
“zero-hour” employment contracts, i.e., there is no guarantee the employees
will work even one hour per week.
being an aberration or anomaly, the vast expansion of low-wage work in the
United States is the deliberate policy of the Obama administration and both
political parties, which are working to boost the profits of the corporations
by driving down labor costs.
made clear by Obama’s decision last week to make a major economic policy speech
at a Chattanooga, Tennessee warehouse run by Amazon.com, which is notorious for
subjecting its fulfillment center employees to brutally low wages and sweatshop
pay for workers at Amazon’s fulfillment centers is $11 per hour, and up to half
of the work force is contracted from temporary employment agencies during busy
periods. Employees are made to work in extreme temperatures, are prevented from
speaking with one another, subjected to personal searches, and routinely
threatened with termination.
the company’s “job creation” in his speech, Obama declared that “Amazon is a
great example of what’s possible.” Obama called for “new tax credits so
communities hit hardest by plant closures can attract new investment.” The
Amazon fulfillment center where he was speaking is exactly the type of “new
investment” to which Obama was referring. It received a waiver on state taxes
from Tennessee, which has among the highest unemployment rates in the country,
in exchange for opening up two warehouses in the state.
Obama’s rhetoric about creating “decent-paying” and “middle class” jobs, the
reality is that his administration has made the slashing of workers’ wages a
deliberate goal, beginning with the 2009 restructuring of Chrysler and General
Motors, in which Obama’s Auto Task Force made the imposition of a 50 percent
wage cut for new-hires the condition for providing bailout funds to the US auto
policy is shared by both political parties in the US and the ruling classes of
all countries. Earlier this year, Maria Damanaki, Greece’s representative to
the European Commission, told Greece’s Vima FM radio that “the strategy of the
European Commission over the past year-and-a-half or two has been to reduce the
labour costs in all European countries in order to improve the competitiveness
of European companies over the rivals from Eastern Europe and Asia.”
wages, abusive working conditions, and permanent job insecurity are all that
the capitalist system has to offer working people. The only way to guarantee
decent wages and living standards is to replace this obsolete social order,
based on the domination of a handful of millionaires and billionaires over all
aspects of social life, with a system—socialism—based on the satisfaction of
social needs, not the enrichment of a privileged few.
