Just read in the newspapers that the H2B Visa situation needs tweaking in order to provide labor for businesses on the Cape & Islands because the wealthy class wants cheaper labor and since the “free market” will not meet their needs, they want “the government” to intervene.
Excuse me but…..WHY?
Massachusetts citizens can drop a few hundred grand – or millions – on a vacation home, but can’t afford to pay the citizens of Massachusetts a wage that is bargained for in fairness between working class citizens and the elite of The Commonwealth? Senator John Kerry (D) is selling his old digs on Nantucket for $25 MILLION and buying a place on the Vineyard….but our working class citizens must compete with “shipped in” labor to serve him and his ilk?
Why can’t the wealthy and well-to-do simply PAY a fairly and freely negotiated wage with the labor class of the commonwealth so that our wide and widening wealth disparity can be addressed honestly and in fairly?
And Justice for All?
