Quote of the Day

"Is labor performed by illegal workers for wages below minimum really cheap?

"…Who benefits from this “cheap” labor? Who does not want the flow of this cheap labor stopped? Mostly businesses. So we the taxpayers fund the bottom lines of our corporations and businesses.

"…So cheap labor is very expensive for us, the taxpayers. Why should we, the taxpayers, have to subsidize corporate America, which has been working very hard at taking our jobs overseas, away from us?"

--Vivian Michaels, “Is Cheap Labor Really Cheap?
