Illegal Immigrants In Our Workforce
The New Oxford American Dictionary defines discrimination as follows: “…(to) make an unjust or prejudicial distinction in the treatment of different categories of people or things, esp. on the grounds of race, sex, or age : existing employment policies discriminate against women.”.
As we study the labor market two areas rise immediately to the forefront in the political arena. The issue of illegal immigrants in our workforce and the inequity in women’s wages (the glass ceiling). In this week’s discussion, I want us to examine women’s income gap to men and illegal immigration. PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT YOUR POSTINGS ARE DIGNIFIED AND RESPECTFUL. INAPPROPRIATE COMMENTS WILL BE GIVEN A “0”.

Please read about various proposals regarding guest workers.
I want you to respond by analyzing how allowing illegal immigrants impact US wages and if we should clamp down on immigration (legal and otherwise)
