A newly-proposed “W visa” system, set to be approved this week by the US Congress as part of an “immigration reform package” will cause the nation to be flooded with even more low-skilled nonwhite immigrants, which will in turn further increase unemployment among white citizens.
The W Visa is supposedly designed to allow employers to bring in Third World immigrants who will “work for cheap” washing dishes, cleaning hotels, caring for the elderly, and in retail or construction jobs and so on.
But even the leftist controlled AFL-CIO has admitted that the further importation of low-skilled works will have a detrimental effect on low wage earners already present in the US.
There are currently 4.1 million unemployed Americans with a high school education or less, and many more who don’t count as unemployed because they’ve given up looking for work.
Even during the peak of the last boom, in 2007, there were 2.5 million unemployed Americans with a high school education or less.
The new W visa program would admit 20,000 low-skilled foreign workers starting in 2015 and could gradually grow to 200,000 after five years. The mass influx of these low-skilled workers will also bring about a lowering of wages due to competition.
Seven of the 10 largest occupations in the country now pay less than $30,000 a year, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
If other temporary worker programs are any indication, most of the foreign workers taking advantage of the new W-visa program would come from Mexico, Jamaica, and Guatemala. About 80 percent of workers in the H-2B visa program in 2011 were from Mexico, according to State Department data.
