    Pelosi wage hike endangers workers' jobs
    Tuna canneries in American Samoa looking at outsourcing labor

    A wage hike endorsed by U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for tuna cannery workers in America Samoa probably will cost many of those workers their jobs, according to a company that makes its headquarters in Pelosi's California district.


    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi

    The plan Pelosi moved through the House earlier this year was written to raise the lowest wage that is allowed from $5.15 per hour to $7.25 per hour, over a period of several years

    However, as WND reported, pundits caught her allowing an exemption for workers in American Samoa, where Del Monte Food Inc., which is run out of Pelosi's district that includes San Francisco, and the San Diego-based Chicken of the Sea International, employ an estimated 5,000 workers in their tuna works.

    Actually this plays into the hands of the immigration folks. Fire all of the Americans and give the jobs to the ones who just got amnesty for being here illegal in the first place.

    The problem we are facing really is the skilled labor is educated and the un-skilled isn't. Now with all the opportunities to go to school and get certificates and degrees through the government is available. So these unskilled jobs face the problem of wage increase and U.S. citizens who will most likely loose that job only to be filled by illegals. That isn't right or fair, but it would allow in theory to keep cost as they are. But the hiccup is gas and fuel prices for goods being sent interstate will have to rise due to freight cost. Is there really a way of answering this honestly? Not everyone is capable of going to school and being educated. Yet we need workers who will show up and work, thus the problem.

    You are right. So were is the reason to enable a society to remain lazy and continue to be a burden when a majority of the population works and does there part. If we had even 90% of the work force actually working our GNP and employment levels would be very low and it would be a true modern marvel. All the wishful thinking won’t change the system as it stands today.

    If I were a liberal I'd believe the government was doing the right thing. Making us dependant on the governement and thus having no say after years of being dependant when change was clearly needed.
