There’s a nasty punchline in this tale of law and order.
For decades companies that employed minorities often pit blacks versus hispanics, in order to keep wages down. They got away with it because left-wing politicians weren’t serious about the lives of their constituents. One major problem is that they think illegals, who ostensibly cannot vote, are their constituents.
Blacks kept quiet about pay raises because they saw hispanics, illegals, hired to perform the same job they were doing at a much lower salary.
The signal was sent. Shut up or you’ll be replaced.
There’s been a shakeup in a major bakery in Rahmtown. Hundreds of Cloverhill employees who did not pass e-verification were sent letters. They didn’t show up for work for fear of deportation.
This left openings for a large percentage of the company’s jobs. An agency stepped in to quickly fill the positions, and wages went up. Blacks were now getting $14 and hour compared to the illegals $10 an hour.
All’s well that ends well?
Naaa. This doesn’t end well.
The nasty punchline is that the factory can’t keep efficient because of the high “turnover” rate of blacks (40%) and they don’t work as hard.
I’m starting to understand the phrase “doing the jobs Americans do not want.”
