We have become accustomed to seeing robots in the workplace in big industries like auto manufacturing, but most Americans work in smaller companies, so the threat of smart machine replacement for those jobs is not so great, right? Wrong.
Baxter the robot, a machine introduced a couple years ago, costs around $22,000 to purchase and $3/hour […]
Monday’s Washington Times had a front-page article titled, “Illegals taking jobs from blacks, driving down domestic wages,” which provides an overview of how low-skilled citizens are being displaced and disadvantaged by the open-border policies of the black President.
Amnesty is tremendously cruel to Obama’s most loyal boosters, who are proud of seeing a black man in […]
Fortune magazine has an article reassuring tippy top inventive people that a robot won’t take their jobs. In particular, if someone’s work requires creativity then they are probably secure. It’s the last century jobs using repetition that are at risk — from welder to librarian.
Below, auto manufacturing once supplied millions of middle class jobs for […]
Excessive immigration can usually muddle through as long as the jobs economy doesn’t tank. But when employment disappears, then jobless locals begin to notice the cheapie foreign workers. That scenario seems to be the case in South Africa, where several persons have been killed in anti-immigration rioting across the country over the last couple weeks. […]
Today, April 14, 2015, is the 150-year anniversary of Abraham Lincoln’s assassination just five days after Lee’s surrender ending the Civil War. The murder changed American forever and is a reminder that we get to where we are from where we’ve been. Left-wingers believe people are blank slates that can be molded into compliant cogs […]
On Sunday, Fox News weekend host Tucker Carlson focused on the lingering scandal of Southern California Edison firing Americans workers to replace them with cheaper foreign workers. A few days ago a group of 10 bipartisan senators called for a federal investigation of H-1b visa abuse in the case, following a March hearing which explored […]
A refreshingly bipartisan list of Senators has sent a letter to the Justice Department, Department of Homeland Security and the Labor Department urging federal investigation of H-1b visa abuse. Ten senators signed the letter, including five Republicans (Sessions, Grassley, Vitter, Cassidy, Inhofe) four Democrats (Durbin, Blumenthal, Brown, McCaskill) and one Independent (Sanders).
One notable name missing […]
Senator Sessions wrote an op-ed published on Friday in the Washington Post where he called for a sane approach regarding the number of immigrants America admits. He correctly noted that the changing workplace must be taken into account. When human employees are increasingly being replaced by robots, automation and computers, then the wrong idea of […]
The big Democrat brains who run California claim to be shocked that so many illegal aliens have shown up to get its reasonably priced driver’s licenses, a mere $33, same as what US citizens pay. Half a million foreign job thieves have gotten the identity documents since January, twice as many as were expected.
Why is […]
One of the little-noticed areas of immigrants being imported to work cheap is baseball. If you have seen your local team gradually become diverse, it is by design so owners can reduce their payrolls. Now there are so many Spanish-speaking players that the league may be about to mandate an on-site translator for every team.
In February, I wrote about Amazon’s new “fulfillment centers” that featured increased use of robots: “North Texas: Amazon.com Promotes Its Semi-Automated Warehouses.” Managers assured the public and new local employees that the smart machines “help” humans do the heavy lifting and boring stuff that the workers don’t want to do.
We’ve heard that kind of language […]
Senator Ted Cruz declared his candidacy for the Presidency on Monday in a speech given at Liberty University. It was a fine presentation of patriotic principles where he called on conservatives to rise up and “reignite the promise of America.”
He spoke extemporaneously, without the help of a teleprompter, the gadget vital to Obama maintaining the […]
