cheap labor

“What is wrong about thinking about justice for the guy whose wages are being depressed because of the millions of people who are coming in here and willing to take the job for even a lower price?” Rep. Tom Tancredo, R-Colo., asked in a Fox News interview recently.

You know those "Made in the USA" or "Certified Organic" product labels? Well, I think Rep. Tancredo should create a new "Certified Legal Labor" label.

Hey, maybe he could even open an entire store... Super Tom-Mart. His slogan could be "Everyday high prices" ...iceberg lettuce $5, pork $10 per pound, 24 crayons $7... You get the idea.

Oh wait.

I forgot.

Cheap goods and labor are more addictive than meth.
