One must assume that the backdrop of today’s oversight hearing is a proposal for a temporary worker (“guest worker”) program that President Bush announced on January 7th of this year.

These post-work predictions weren’t entirely wrong. By some counts, Americans work much less than they used to. The average work year has shrunk by more than hours.

But those figures don’t. Workers who don’t receive paid vacation benefits are typically at the lower end of the wage spectrum, or have part-time, freelance, or contract-based employment arrangements, and often they either can’t afford to take time off of work or their work schedules aren’t flexible enough to take vacation time.

The entry of additional workers through the H-1B, H-2B, J, and L nonimmigrant visa programs, therefore, presents a significant threat to employment opportunities for Americans.

Since October ofDisney aggressively used "guest workers" for low-wage staffing to replace American workers. The H-1B, a 3-year work visa, allows foreigners to enter the country for specific jobs. Originally, H-1B visas were structured to bring in highly skilled, uniquely talented individuals if the American labor pool ran dry.

The way Americans work has people in other countries scratching their heads. Although people in the United States are known for working hard - and much longer than those in other countries. There is no shortage of workers in the United States, and no shortage of Americans willing to work.

Of those not in the labor force, million “want a job,” according to the BLS. Add that to the million unemployed who are actively seeking a job. That’s a labor pool of million. House Republicans are expected to approve a gigantic “H-2C” guest-worker bill on Wednesday that allows the nation’s food industry to employ one million low-wage, foreign guest-workers — regardless of how many Americans would lose their skilled or unskilled jobs in fields, orchards, cattle ranches, dairy farms, forests, seafood ports, meat-packing plants, and food.

The debate over the guest worker solution does not divide along neat partisan lines. Until recently, Democratic U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein, the AFL-CIO, and immigrant-rights organizations that recall the abuses of the Bracero program opposed guest worker programs.

Republican Congressmen Lamar Smith and Tom Tancredo, as well as the.
