Well you may get your wish.
The Central Statistics Office says about 76,000 left this country of 4.5 million last year for stronger job markets in other English-speaking countries — chiefly Britain, Australia and Canada — and the trend has continued this year.
Spanish emigration has jumped by 22%.
As we all know Europe is slowly heading into bankruptcy, and thus their unemployment rates will be skyrocketing. So young people will be packing up.
Play around with the data here http://www.google.com/publicdata/explor … t6rd5uqa6_
Of course there won't be millions of Europeans arriving, but it may become a noticeable phenomena.
So is the U.S. already full, or do you want a Greek nanny?
The U.S. already has trouble dealing with the problems it has.
What difference would it matter if a few thousand more people were added to the mix.
The issues are different. Millions of Europeans are not going to be able to sneak into the country. Millions of Mexicans have and will sneak it. At one point in our history, we welcome the tired, the poor the huddle masses yearning to be free.
We do not do that any more. There are legitimate reasons. Our resources can only be stretched so far.
We have to find a way to enter into partnerships with these countries to find ways to help them and us keep jobs that will allow them to enjoy a respectable standard of living in their native company instead of having to sneak into the U.S. and always be fearful of being deported.
I do not have the details. It is just a concept. It may not be doable, but we need to try something. We can start my making it a felony for Americans to pay any workers less than minimum wages and to withhold Social Security. The United States people have created a demand for "cheap" labor and the supply pool will do whatever they can to take advantage of it.
"The United States people have created a demand for "cheap" labor and the supply pool will do whatever they can to take advantage of it."
People like cheap things, if things can me be made cheaper by importing labor, then thats what businessmen will do, in order to please the customer.
The we need to find a way to stop that and in turn that will slow the influx of illegal immigrants. Not the perfect solution (I am not going to say final solution) but it is a start at solving the problem.
The funny thing is, all the people arriving from Mexico are passing all the jobs that are leaving this country and going there. The free trade agreement with Mexico should be repealed, as it did not do what the Mexican government hoped it would do, and create jobs nation wide. All it has done is create jobs in border towns, so that US companies could get cheap labor as close to the border as possible. People doing factory work for $3.00 a hour, or even a day, for US companies that had people doing the work for $20-$30 an hour.
This was supposed to bring down the costs of goods. But the real plan was to force US workers to work for less money. And, make corporate america and wall street investors richer. This needs to end.
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce has just sent me an email, stating that they are in favor, and demanding humanitarian visas for these poor Europeans.
Euro invaders? NEVER! Just what was that whole Aztec massacre thing? Plymouth Rock. Who the hell gave those a2344h9*&^ landing privileges? $24.00 dollars in beads for Manhattan? B.S. The natives thought the cheap beads were a present. Moral here, folks. NEVER accept presents from a white man. They lie a lot. too...you know...speak with forked tongue. Never turn your back on 'em either. They'll steal ya blind.
Hmmm. Any day now, that settlement money is due! Great White Father in D.C. been ripping off the unfortunate red man...from 1940 until 2010. Thanks for the cash. Hey! It matches the casino money!!!
Britain and France, where more than a fifth of all young people are unemployed.
Athina and Rafa worry they'll have to move abroad to survive. In Greece and Spain, youth unemployment is above 50 percent.
