“You Americans have lived an artificially high standard of living for a long time,” a man working one our jobs outsourced to India wrote me. “It’s time you Americans drop to the poverty levels of the rest of the Third World.”

American jobs are offshored, insourced and outsourced at such blinding speed that millions of American citizens stand in unemployment lines every morning while the rest of us go to work, that is, if we still have jobs.

But there is another ominous skullduggery afoot across this country. It’s the importation of illegal aliens by major US companies who thwart Federal Laws in order to ‘lose’ American workers and then, wholesale, break OSHA standards at will.

The displacement of American workers proceeds methodically.

We have an estimated one million illegal alien Chinese in this country (Source: March 2005 Forbes Magazine). At the same time, we outsource jobs to China where a billion people can’t wait to make .22 cents an hour. Human smugglers bringing illegals into America make $7 billion annually according to the report.

If any of us, no matter what our race, creed or color might be, refuse to engage our U.S. Congress as we have not for 30 years as to the immigration equation—our children will find themselves living in a terribly degraded America where the American Dream will be described by the history books as a ‘fleeting fantasy’ from the era of 1950 to 2010.
Immigration's destruction of America's middle class | Before It's News

How many must lose jobs before the citizens of this country realize we are all mere pawns for the elite? If you think your job is safe, think again.

More cost-cutting companies are hiring workers in other countries to do jobs formerly held by U.S. employees. But in a painful twist, some employers are asking the workers they're laying off to train their foreign replacements — having them dig their own unemployment graves.

Except that there's also wage stagnation (even for sectors not influenced by illegal immigration), automation, and (as mentioned) outsourcing...that's really hurting the middle class. For intents and purposes, the middle class is not dying as implied on the boards...it's down, but not out.

It does seem that many can't wait to see the US fall to 3rd World status.

Much of it is being kept afloat with unemployment handouts. Well see how long they keep those up. Then the stuff is going to hit the fan.

So the economy is never bouncing back? Also those trends have been going on since the 1970s...

I'm afraid it will be a new wave of foreclosures if this happens. Here in CA they are saying we have a housing shortage...a housing shortage?
