RT @zekestokes . @haleybarbour: if someone undocumented graduates from the university of mississippi we should staple a green card to it.

.@MontanoJM: I heard McDonald's is a strong supporter of immigration reform. Do you know about that? What's their angle?

From @MontanoJM
@24AheadDotCom Don't know the specifics about McD's but there's overwhelming support from the business community for CIR as a whole. Cont.
Joseph Montano's avatar
From @MontanoJM
@24AheadDotCom There's no "angle". It simply makes economic sense. Great report on small business support of CIR: http://t.co/Ef6l6PH9EO

From @Glaivester
.@MontanoJM @24AheadDotCom The angle is low wages: http://t.co/7PmDsBxuY3

From @MontanoJM
@Glaivester @24AheadDotCom seems like we need to address the issue of raising the minimum wage.
Joseph Montano's avatar
From @MontanoJM
@Glaivester @24AheadDotCom especially since "[McDonald's] cannot even provide their workers with adequate wages to support their families."
Glaivester's avatar
From @Glaivester
.@MontanoJM @24AheadDotCom Maybe we do. But raising wages works better with a restricted labor supply.
Glaivester's avatar
From @Glaivester
.@MontanoJM @24AheadDotCom Increasing labor supply then increasing minimum wages is like printing money then imposing price controls.

.@MontanoJM @24AheadDotCom Note @BeckyTallent's comments on #immigration: http://t.co/Pt407ETMPJ #Poultry plant conditions are so bad (1/2)
Joseph Montano's avatar
From @MontanoJM
@Glaivester @24AheadDotCom I know I'm digressing but personally, I think that states should determine their labor supply needs.
Joseph Montano's avatar
From @MontanoJM
@Glaivester @24AheadDotCom why is the fed. Govt. responsible for capping work visas without knowing a state's labor needs?
Glaivester's avatar
From @Glaivester
.@MontanoJM @24AheadDotCom @beckytallent ...prisoners won't work there. So import those who will rather than demand better conditions (2/2).
Glaivester's avatar
From @Glaivester
.@MontanoJM @24AheadDotCom The same reason it is responsible for determining what a low-skill worker's time is worth?
Joseph Montano's avatar
From @MontanoJM
@Glaivester @24AheadDotCom determining the number of migrant workers a state needs is different than determining a national min. wage.

.@MontanoJM @24AheadDotCom So you think that Arizona's SB1070 should have been upheld in its entirety?
Glaivester's avatar
From @Glaivester
.@MontanoJM @24AheadDotCom Can a state determine that it does not need or want immigrant labor and keep the immigrants out?
Joseph Montano's avatar
From @MontanoJM
@Glaivester @24AheadDotCom not sure where you got that from my comments. And no, it should have been deemed unconstitutional.
Joseph Montano's avatar
From @MontanoJM
@Glaivester @24AheadDotCom especially the part that was upheld. The "reasonable suspicion" detention portion. It invites racial profiling

@MontanoJM @Glaivester @24AheadDotCom States absolutely have the right to model laws on federal law and enforce.
Joseph Montano's avatar
From @MontanoJM
@pyconnor @Glaivester @24AheadDotCom and SCOTUS has the right to deem those laws unconst. Esp. if they're given to rampant discrimination

@pyconnor @Glaivester @24AheadDotCom case in point, DOMA decision

From @Glaivester
.@MontanoJM @24AheadDotCom @pyconnor My point: you claim to think that states should determine how much immigration they need, not feds.
Glaivester's avatar
From @Glaivester
.@MontanoJM @24AheadDotCom @pyconnor However, you change your mind when the states determine they want LESS immigration than feds.
Glaivester's avatar
From @Glaivester
.@MontanoJM @24AheadDotCom What about a state deciding not to honor federal green cards? Is that okay too?
Glaivester's avatar
From @Glaivester
.@MontanoJM @24AheadDotCom Under your system, if a state thinks it has too many workers, can it prohibit hiring non-citizens?
Glaivester's avatar
From @Glaivester
.@MontanoJM @24AheadDotCom Or can it prohibit hiring particular classes of non-citizens (e.g. guestworkers, non-permanent residents)?
Joseph Montano's avatar
From @MontanoJM
@Glaivester @24AheadDotCom I don't think you understand the difference between work visas and green cards.
Glaivester's avatar
From @Glaivester
.@MontanoJM @24AheadDotCom Why can it force them to permit foreign workers without knowing its employment needs?
Glaivester's avatar
From @Glaivester
.@MontanoJM @24AheadDotCom You're right, I meant work visas.
Joseph Montano's avatar
From @MontanoJM
@Glaivester @24AheadDotCom interesting concept. I would say that state-based visas should be issued in addition to the fed. Gov visas issued
Glaivester's avatar
From @Glaivester
.@MontanoJM @24AheadDotCom You mean states should only be given the ability to determine labor needs when they say they need MORE.
