We have labor shortages in America? Who knew? We should tell this nation's unemployed, especially those who have dropped out of the workforce, and let them have a crack at these unfilled jobs.
Keep in mind, that the ranks of unemployed are not having any trouble feeding themselves... as you consider the next line in the same WSJ piece:
Agriculture is among the worst off, and millions of crop acres go fallow or are left to rot due to too few farm workers.The farmers can't get enough workers to harvest the food, but at the same time we have so much food that even those without a job have enough to eat... sounds like we don't need that extra food at all... so why should we bother seeking migrant workers to staff these fields?
As I've said before, the best immigration policy I can think of would be to encourage as many foreign countries as possible to seek freedom and liberty. We would all rise on that tide, and many foreign nationals could find success in their own homeland... and we can stop having nonsensical arguments like those in today's WSJ.
