SHORTAGE of FOREIGN LABOR Forces Maine Businesses To Offer HIGHER WAGES to LOCAL WORKERS...
Businesses in Bar Harbor, Maine are turning to locals to make up for a shortage of foreign guest workers that normally fill summer jobs in the bustling seaside resort town. Because the H-2B visa program has already reached its annual quota, Bar Harborís hotels, restaurants and shops canít bring in any more foreign workers for the rest of the busy summer tourist season. The shortage is so acute that companies are sweetening incentives for local workers. Searchfield says some businesses are offering flexible schedules that might appeal to older workers who might be interested in working only a day or two each week. And other companies have gone so far as to offer higher wages to entice locals.

Economics 101 for the open borders leftist wagetards. A never ending surplus of labor distorts the labor market and depresses wages because there is always someone willing to take the job at the wage offered. A shortage of labor forces businesses to create incentives like higher wages to entice potential applicants. You cannot have both unfettered immigration and higher wages in a natural market and since leftist wagetards are unwilling to accept that their policies fail when exposed to natural market forces they

A: Blame the businesses for being "greedy"
B: Attempt to further distort the market by mandating a higher wage.

The natural and most effective fix for depressed wages is a sensible and enforced immigration policy. Only problem with that is that politicians don't get the chance to take credit for anything.

Actually it is horrible for the libtard wagetards because it demonstrates that an artificial minimum wage hike is unnecessary.

Conversely it shows that business will lie about not having enough working Americans thus needed CHEAPER labor.

Businesses lie and most care not about the fate of the country or the people.

OMG ... I wonder what would happen if the tech workers VISA program was halved in the number of allowable tech workers? How about a 3/4 cut in VISA numbers? (enough of the current situation where when an Indian gets in a tech management position he ONLY hires other Indians!! - it is disgusting!!)

If that happened American Tech Workers might actually have some job security and stop getting laid off and having to train their lower paid Indian Replacements while THEIR employment is being terminated. (you hear me Disney? ... and other companies)
