The tradgedy of this immigration bill is that employers seem to want no part of American HS drop outs. The reality is that immigrants come here motivated and there are no saftey nets. HS drop outs are not motivated and have saftey nets to fall back on. Even if these wages were legal companies seem to prefer immigrants.
The question is how to get these HS dropouts baack on trak is a serious problem. Part of the fee paid by employers should go towards vocational training of dropouts.
There is no reason or shame in a person learning computer repair, welding or the various types of mechanic trade.
The other reality is that US employers are getting frustrated with US college graduates with useless degrees. The new bill makes provisions for vocational, educational ability and English proficiency. A degree in Gender studies prepares on for a job as what? The Old Bolshevik network has made a mockery of the system of higher ed.
The reality is that big business is reacting to the decline in quality in our college grads fostered by treating our Universities as a jobs program for Bolsheviks.
