    Why do the Unemployed blame foreigners ?

    Why do the Unemployed blame foreigners for their own unemployment ?

    The main excuse for unemployed people when asked why they are unemployed is because of people who come into their country and take all the jobs. My response to this is that there reason that they get jobs and you don't is very simple: they worked harder than you. If they are better at it then you than they are obviously going to get the job. Even if this happens whats to stop you from trying out for another job or work harder and then coming back. I just think its stupid that foreigners are blamed for the increase of unemployment levels when they have worked hard to get their jobs and just because you are English doesn't mean you are more to entitled to a job then someone who isn't.

    Those 'illegal' immigrants move to the us because govt. destroys the economy in their homeland. And than, braindead patriotic americans blame the immigrants for coming over. It's corporations who are to blame, not immigrants

    edit: I'm just using the us as an example

    not even mate, the foreigners can come over and get jobs simply because there are jobs to be taken.

    A lot of people complain that they're taking their jobs, but they're getting jobs that nobody wants to do. It's ridiculous the attitude from the unemployed.

    Re: Why do the Unemployed blame foreigners ?

    As other have already stated, the immigrants mainly take menial jobs, like cleaning toilets.

    The argument can be elaborated on when people say that the government spends too much on housing and educating and providing health to Immigrants. Well, perhaps not income tax, but the immigrants themselves pay tax on every bloody good they buy. Not only that but they are supported for a limited period of time then the cash allowances, and the housing benefits, and all the rest is cut off. I know this for a fact at least in the USA, not sure about the EU and UK. And once they get employed, income tax could come into the question.

    Re: Why do the Unemployed blame foreigners ?

    It is corporations, but the reason people blame them is that most often, especially at factories people hire them illegally paying them less than minimum wage. I live in North Carolina, and it seems to be a problem here, I have a few Hispanic friends that aren't even legally here, but working at a factory. When the factory I worked at Coty had a change in temp services, the new service came in and fired every one who was illegally working, and in the matter of a day Coty lost 90% of its work force, about 95% of the Hispanics had been fired. I totally agree with you though they're people trying to make it in what they feel is a better country, but when people like my mother get laid off after working at a place like Coty for fifteen years, and they lay off most of the people who have been working there for longer than five years, and they only keep people working there temporarily it is a problem. They're not laying these people off because they're lazy they're doing it because they keep more money this way, because people who've been working there for years get medical benefits, and more pay per hour, which is what they deserve, because they've made a career out of there job. It is the companies to blame, but who do the people point the finger at for overcrowding in there city, it's a very slippery slope.

    EDIT: I hope this helps to answer your question a little bit, Danzo. Believe it or not this is a growing problem in America. So my question to you is this. How do we in America fix this? Do we fire all the people illegally working here, or keep laying off the people trying to make a career?

    Actually most of the immigrants don't pay taxes in the U.S.of motherfucin A. my motherfucin friend. That's once again another problem with our government. Unless they're legally here, but shouldn't they pay taxes then, I mean if an American citizen whose lived here all there live has to they should too. It would be most unfair if they didn't, because they're coming here, because they see this p,ace as a land of opportunity so obviously they're coming here for beneficial reasons, or else they wouldn't come to begin with.

    Re: Why do the Unemployed blame foreigners ?

    Its the American tradition. People immigrate from countries with lower standards and are willing to work hard for relatively little money, and employers take advantage of that by hiring them instead of the current population. The current population feels threatened and complains/blames the immigrants for lowering wages and stealing their jobs. Been happening since the 1800's and will keep on happening. Just kind of a natural cycle.....

    Re: Why do the Unemployed blame foreigners ?



    :rofl: Can't believe no one's posted this yet.

    Anyway, the thing that I don't like is that companies are able to leave the country, set up somewhere that has a cheap labor force and lower taxes, then sell it back to us. That's just stupid and it's draining our economy (USA) like crazy since the money is leaving. It's the unions and stuff I think that don't like foriegners that come here and take jobs because they can't work as cheaply nor are they willing to.

    Re: Why do the Unemployed blame foreigners ?

    it is only the illegal immigrants who do take jobs.....however many people who will whine about people taking jobs are not that interested in getting a job....because when i was looking for my first job i never complained about any one "taking" my job....i simply kept on looking till i got one, never focusing on why it was difficult to get a job.....so while their blame is partly correct of blameing ILLEGAL immigrants, they should not whine about it and keep working in getting a job

    Indirect taxes = the tax that are on goods such as Alcohol and sales tax and elsewhere, these are paid for sure. Because it is included in the price one pays for the good itself, you cannot not pay it. As I said, once they find a job, income taxes, which are direct taxes, are involved, and not only immigrants, but even many ordinary and rich and poor Americans can and do misreport their income or follow any other method in order not to pay the taxes on their income.

    Corporations, like you have said, are a reason. If they can get to abuse and pay an illegal immigrate less than a legal immigrant or a citizen, why wouldn't they do it ? Even threatening could be used later on, lower their income, and if they complain, tell them you'll report them, so they'd shut up. Pretty common practice, and the cycle goes on.

    Agree @ thread owner

    In my country(RSA), foreigners are killed daily bcoz people believe they are stealing jobs.
    Its not right coz these foreigners work hard while citizens just want jobs handed to them!!

    Corporations can take advantage over foreigners, unlike U.S. citizens. One can turn a blind eye and say that it never happens, but they would be lying to themselves.


    Businesses are always looking for new ways to save money. Paying an unknowing immigrant below minimum wage, while crude, is certainly efficient. It's nothing more or less than the sad truth.

    Do the ends always justify the
    means?
     

    Re: Why do the Unemployed blame foreigners ?

    Actually, outsourcing is not biased to the ability of the worker, just the amount the business owner has to pay him/her.

    Specifically, in America, if a business owner asked someone to rake leaves for 2 bucks an hour, it is more than likely that the American would refuse to because it is well below minimum wage, but the "foreigner" would not complain simply because he/she needs work.

    Re: Why do the Unemployed blame foreigners ?

    I never understood how jobs could be 'taken' or even worse 'stolen'? Do immigrants sneak into office buildings at night and change the names in the Employe register along with modifying the memories of the superiors? I think there is procedure and criteria by which people are hired . . . . . so basically arnt the people who hire foreigners selectively for cheap labor the real problem?
