Very interesting. You must also remember that one of the things that has kept wages stagnant, particularly in the trades, manufacturing, and service industries, is the influx of low payed illegals, especially in the Southwest. The numbers in the past 10-15 years have been enormous, and not only have they held wages down for the working poor, they are a net drain on our health-care budget, thus increasing the burden on other employers, bringing everyones wage rates down.



Also read this article, about why the government actually wants the border to be open.

I am a cheerleader for the great changes that have occurred in medical technology and a great believer in continued improvement. But working in mental health, I am also aware of the simple fact that people have to accept treatment for it to work. A large percentage of our hospital days are for psychiatric stays.
