The United States has been suffering through the worst jobs climate in recent memory with millions of Americans unable to find work and just giving up looking. Now, things are going to get worse because with his massive, unconstitutional amnesty, Obama just gave employers a big incentive to hire illegals instead of real Americans.
According to The Washington Times, Obama’s illicit amnesty will hand employers a $3,000 incentive to hire illegals over American citizens.
How did the paper figure this? It’s because of Obamacare, naturally.
You see, because these five million illegals are supposedly not eligible for Obamacare, that means that employers won’t have to pay for healthcare nor will Obamacare fines apply if they hire illegals instead of real Americans.
Rep. Lamar Smith (R, TX) was flabbergasted when the paper told him of the loophole.
“If it is true that the president’s actions give employers a $3,000 incentive to hire those who came here illegally, he has added insult to injury,” Smith said. “The president’s actions would have just moved those who came here illegally to the front of the line, ahead of unemployed and underemployed Americans.”
Already millions of American citizens have given up even looking for work in this dismal Obama economy. The news was everywhere earlier in the year that each quarter hundreds of thousands of Americans simply gave up looking for jobs because none were there to be had.
Even if Americans have gotten a job, chances are they got an unsatisfactory part time job instead of the full time work they really want. A recent Wall Street Journal noted that seven million Americans are stuck in unsatisfactory part time jobs.
It was also noted right after Obama issued his illicit amnesty that the President just added nearly as many illegals to the workforce as jobs that have been created during his whole presidency!
And now, Obama is setting the table for even more Americans to lose jobs to illegals?
