From the article:
Republican lawmakers are expressing shock over a Labor Department ad campaign that offers government assistance to illegal immigrants who think they're getting shortchanged for their work . . .This reminds me of something I've asked before: Why do we promote unlimited illegal immigration and at the same time we have a minimum wage law?
This is more of the same nonsense.
At least one person in DC gets it. Here is proof:
"That's insane," Utah Rep. Jason Chaffetz told FoxNews.com on Wednesday. "That's just unbelievable."It is insane, but unfortunately, it is believable.
Here is some more offensive stuff:
But the Labor Department stood by the campaign, saying in a written statement to FoxNews.com that "through Democratic and Republican administrations, the Department of Labor has consistently held that the country's minimum wage and overtime law protects workers regardless of their immigration status."I don't know what to say.
I love this part:
It is not clear how much the campaign costs.It isn't clear because so far nobody has been able to count high enough to calculate just how much illegals cost us. A supercomputer doesn't have enough digits to find the answer.
Here is even more:
In a press release issued at the launch of the campaign, the Labor Department said it seeks to help workers learn how to file a complaint with the department's wage and hour division to recover owed wages. Solis said in the press release that she has added more than 250 new field investigators nationwide to participate in the campaign.So now we are going to put the federal government at the disposal if illegals so they can use it as a giant club and beat employers to death. Are we, as a nation, really this stupid? On the bright side (if there is one) at least the federal government reduced the unemployment rolls by 250. Those 250 should probably be gutting chickens and cleaning toilets instead of bothering citizens and taxpayers.
Let's have a little more:
"I'm here to tell you that your president, your secretary of labor and this department will not allow anyone to be denied his or her rightful pay -- especially when so many in our nation are working long, hard and often dangerous hours," Labor Secretary Hilda Solis said.As far as I'm concerned "rightful pay" for illegals is a kick in the behind as we dump them back over the border.
The initiative appears to contradict labor law -- cited on the Labor Department's own website -- which states that employers may hire only people who work legally in the United States. The Obama administration has vowed to crack down on employers who hire illegal immigrants, employers that Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano has called "evildoers."Expecting anything from the federal government to make sense is crazy. You should know better.
Here is probably my favorite part:
But the Labor Department says protecting undocumented workers from exploitation benefits all U.S. workers by ensuring there's a level playing field when they seek employment.What country is this? What planet am I on? This reminds me of a book I read once about a guy named "Big Brother". Something about "War is Peace" and "Freedom is Slavery". I guess we can add "Illegal is Legal" and "Helping people by taking their jobs away" to that little list of sayings.
I would suggest we replace the Labor Secretary Hilda Solis with an illegal who would destroy the nation that American's don't want to destroy, but somehow I don't think Hilda has a problem destroying this nation.
I keep thinking this is a nightmare that eventually I'll wake up from.
