Letter: Clamoring for cheap labor

Clamoring for cheap labor

I read where industry reps are howling for immigration reform. Translation: The fat cats can’t get enough cheap scab labor. The greed buckets don’t really give a damn about human rights; they want to put more money in their pockets by screwing legal, American workers.

They blather about what is “right for America,” and all they care about is increasing profits. Upvalley gets cheap scab labor, and downvalley gets the cost of educating their anchor babies.

All those industry reps & Aspen fat cats are so transparently hypocritical and self-serving, it’s sickening.
