This morning on CNN they did a 20 minute segment about how businesses in Pennsylvania, New York, Ohio and elsewhere are hiring more and more refugees because, as they put it, American job-seekers are addicts.
This is remarkably obtuse propaganda. Even by the segment’s own inflated numbers of job-seekers who flunked pre-employment drug screenings (20% according to Sterling Technologies) they report that 80% of job-seekers passed the drug tests yet when they showed the inside of the manufacturing facility the owner proudly stated 100% of the workers on the floor were Syrian.
Truth is, refugees are cheaper than American workers. Businesses don’t have to pay certain benefits for them and I am sure they get some kind of tax-breaks for hiring refugees. Plus, they will work for less and put up with more.
That’s what explains the 100% refugee staff on that shop floor. It has nothing to do with Americans being junkies.
CNN had also just done a segment where GE’s CEO talked about his opposition to Trump growing more and more vocal. He opposed his travel ban and Trump’s position on the “Global Warming” hoax but mostly, he didn’t like the new president’s position on cheap illegal immigrant labor, though he didn’t put it quite that way.
The CNN interviewer didn’t bother asking the CEO if he had a problem with Trump looking to walk back the build-up of the New Cold War since that would cost GE, a major defense contractor, a lot of money.
But of course, his main problem with Trump was his stance on illegal immigration. i.e. “cheap labor”
