Who will work these jobs?

With all the jobs that are going to be created by infrastructure improvement — the wall, the Keystone XL pipeline, and expanded oil development in the Gulf of Mexico by Exxon Mobil — the question has to be asked: Who’s going to work those jobs?

Thanks to the Obama administration, we’re already at full employment and have been for some time. A jobless rate below 5 percent is the definition of full employment.

Guess we’ll have to look south of the border.
