He also told me he got his full paycheck because nothing was taken out. I have to pay federal, state, Medicare and Social Security. He paid nothing. In fact, none of the Mexicans I know pays anything, contrary to the lies of the media.
Actually, this guy told me all the Mexicans at the warehouse he works at are being fired because none of them pays anything. He said it was about 25 workers out of about 150 altogether. None of them has an SS card.
The only reason any foreigner is in the U.S. is to undercut American wages. It's been like that for a long time.
Everyone knows that Chinese built the railroads. Not quite. They built the railroads out West but the Irish built them in the East. Both groups were imported to undercut American wages. (The Chinese were described as "servile workers" and it took the Irish to strike and get better pay.)
Disney, for example, fired a bunch of Americans who wrote software and replaced them with people from India. And they had the Americans train their replacements to get their severance pay.
There are already a bunch of anti-immigration laws on the books. They've never been enforced. Why? More money for the wealthy.
This Mexican told me one Mexican at the warehouse muttered, "Trump." It was about the only word he knew because he apparently knows about as much English as I know Spanish.
None of this is Trump's doing. He's not even President yet. It's the doing of the Republican majority in Congress, which is finally enforcing the laws.
The more the laws are enforced, the more I expect wages for Americans to rise. The fewer workers, the higher the wages.
That's what supply-and-demand does.
