Do Businesses Need Foreign Workers?
Martha´s Vineyard Is Finding Out

Wall Street Journal, by Laura Meckler

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 8/10/2017 11:58:58 AM

MARTHA’S VINEYARD, Mass.—Jamaicans and other foreign workers have long powered the summer economy in the upscale tourist haven of Martha’s Vineyard, cleaning hotel rooms, waiting tables and mixing fudge. This year, many local businesses had to come up with a Plan B. Facing a shortage of foreign laborers, local restaurants have reduced hours of operation and pared back menus. Managers are cleaning hotel rooms, laundry is piling up and at least one restaurant is using disposable cups to ease the dishwashers’ load. The problem is a scarcity of the H-2B visas used to bring foreign seasonal workers to the U.S.

Comments:
Martha´s Vineyard is having to ´muddle through´ without cheap foreign labor. Cry me a river.

Did they put the word out to the college kids about having the opportunity to spend the summer in Martha´s Vineyard? Obviously not.

The problem is that the rich, elite, high-and-mighty East Coast Liberals can´t vacation cheaply. Wait for it... Wait for it... Wait for it... Nope, sorry, can´t pull out a single tear.

FTA: The problem is a scarcity of the H-2B visas used to bring foreign seasonal workers to the U.S.

No No No - it´s the illegals who were employed not a foreign worker on a H-2B visa. Now that President DJT is enforcing our laws, the illegals are not crossing the border like they used to and showing up for employment at slave labor wages (that are excessive when compared to their homeland).

Like the above posters, I could give a rat´s patootie about Martha´s Vineyard. They have the option to remain open and keep the full menu in restaurants - hire American Citizens and pay a decent wage, then charge your clientele appropriately.

If you´re good, the customers will come.

The labor shortage exists entirely because 40-50 million American babies were aborted, will never join the work force.

This is as fundamental a change in our society as the Baby Boom was after WW2. We have a baby shortage because they were murdered, legally.

Nobody wants to talk about why there is a labor shortage.

It is actually very simple. Their mothers killed them.

Anyone with any sense knows the labor shortage at the Vineyard could easily be fixed if those business owners reached deeper into their trust funds.

Kick the Able Bodied OFF of Welfare and they soon will either take those jobs so they have money for food and rent, or they will leave the State and move to California where they will be handed everything they need and not have to lift a finger for the rest of their life.

This is the sort of thing that led me to cease being a fan of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. I used to think the Chamber was good for America because it is good for business. But the Chamber -- like the Martha´s Vineyard crowd -- is not necessarily good for American workers. These people want CHEAP labor, whether Americans do it or someone else.

I´m with others on this thread: Pay a decent wage and offer decent benefits. You´ll find plenty of Americans willing to work in your hotels and restaurants, Martha´s Vineyard. Stop stiffing normal, less-than-wealthy Americans!

Agree above. Wealthy liberals on MV can certainly afford to pay whatever wages are necessary to attract legal American workers. They are so generous with other peoples money, and so tight with their own.

Wages are the "moderator" of supply vs demand in a capitalist system, remember? Oh, wait .. /s

If your business can´t survive without under the table wages to illegals, you really should not be in business. Shutdown for the summer in protest and stay shut till every able bodied welfare parasite is working. If they can´t do the job, fire them and do not put them back on welfare. Otherwise they will never learn a skill or ever get a job.

Up the wages for those jobs and folks WILL show up. If you have no workers, it is because of two things, besides the American genocide, too much welfare and too low wages.

Folks who go to MV can afford higher room rates. If it takes $25 or 30/hr to get people to do service jobs, then close your business, get the politicians to stop paying so much welfare, or PAY the necessary wages.

There is a truth here that the entitled elites are failing to acknowledge: if you can´t hire anybody for your scut work, you are not offering a high enough wage.

I never had a single problem with hiring someone to help me; I paid top dollar and expected top work. And I got it.

Whoa! Hold up just a darn minute! I can pretty much guess that every business owners in MV, Kennebunkport and all those other high and mighty "Resorts" for the filthy rich and political royalty are pure, dyed in the wool libtards. The very worst kind. Are they not the same ones who screech about $15.50 minimum wage, giving starting workers a so-called "livable wage" and all that charity by government nonsense? Why do they want dirty cheap foreign workers int heir establishments? I know at the local cafe, during the ´season" a spaghetti dinner for two is a minimum of $135.00. A motel room is at the very least $500.00 a night and a B&B Weekend is at the very least gonna kill the Hell out of two grand. And they are going broke, having to do the dirty laundry and carry out their own garbage because they can´t get some willing Jamaican or Guatemalan to do that for only 8 bucks an hour?

These dirty rotten hypocrites! Pay a decent wage and you might be surprised at the real American housewives and 19 year old college freshmen would flock in to do it. Cheap "Al Gores" and tax cheating "John Kerries" is what they are, the cheesy ba***ds!

There will always be a scarcity of temporary foreign worker visas, as the more visas that the government makes available the more American employers will use them as a low wage alternative to recruiting and hiring higher wage American workers. Employers have to maintain that there is a scarcity of those visas in order to get the politicians to keep jacking up the numbers of those visas that can be issued each year. That´s the way it has always been.

That is what should happen with every industry that survives on exploitation of illegals and refuses to offer American pay rates to attract American labor. That is the only reason why Americans refuse to perform "sweatshop rate" jobs.

Protesters toppled a Confederate monument in Durham, N.C. on Monday night. Video posted to Twitter shows protestors surrounding the statue and chanting "No KKK! No fascists! USA" as several protestors appear to pull down the statue with a rope. WNCN reports the statue was dedicated in Durham in 1924 and was located in front of a local government building. The statue represented a soldier who fought in the Civil War and an inscription on the front read "The Confederate States of America." One organizer of the protest told WNCN that toppling the statue was in response to the violence at a white supremacist

A Chinese automaker reportedly made a quiet bid to acquire Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, raising the distinct possibility that the traditional member of the Detroit Three that was bailed out by U.S. taxpayers could wind up with Chinese ownership. (Snip) The U.S. government bailed out Chrysler in late 2008 and 2009, funding the company´s bankruptcy and helping to negotiate Italian automaker Fiat´s deal to gain control of the brand. Several years later, Fiat gained full ownership of Chrysler. A deal would almost certainly raise political hackles in the U.S. over the possibility that a company rescued by taxpayers could yield to

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- Among the chaos of the white supremacist rally and apparent car attack that left one dead and 19 others injured, one group in Charlottesville, Virginia, said they were present to maintain the peace: local and national faith leaders. The leaders are now questioning the response by local and state police officers. Brian McLaren, a former priest and nationally-known religious author and speaker, traveled from Florida to be part of an effort called "Congregate C´Ville," which aimed to bring hundreds of faith leaders across the country to Charlottesville, organizer Seth Wispelwey tells CBS News.

ATLANTA — Referring to the crowd of progressive conference-goers as President Trump´s "worst nightmare," Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., tore into members of her own party who believe Democrats should move toward the center in a fiery speech at Netroots Nation. In the Saturday morning keynote, Warren singled out a July op-ed in the New York Times written by Mark Penn and Andrew Stein titled "Back to the Center, Democrats." The headline itself was enough to draw a loud chorus of boos from the audience. "It was all about how we have to stop caring about ´identity politics´ and how we

A crowd of ignorant protesters pulled down a bronze Confederate statue that stood before a county government building in Durham, North Carolina — the angry national backlash to the Charlottesville brouhaha over the Robert E. Lee monument. This is not how civil societies operate. And yet this is what the left has brought, and now cheers. What’s next — burning books with offensive content? Burning books written by those who used to own slaves? At the very least, museums will have to go.

President Trump should have left well enough alone. His Monday denunciation of costumed sheet-wearers and Nazi wanna-bes could have cleared the way for Americans of all stripes to focus their outrage on things that matter more than presidential words. That would be the violence that is infecting our politics and the frightening acceptance of it as the new normal. But Trump’s defiance yesterday is sure to keep the media pot boiling over his rhetoric instead of an ominous reality. Namely, that real protestors don’t carry baseball bats, crowbars and mace. Yet Saturday’s bloody clash in Charlottesville showed that many on

McConnell´s wife, Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, stood next to Trump on Tuesday as he insisted both sides of the weekend´s clash bore some responsibility for

Trump ignited a political firestorm yesterday during an impromptu press conference in which he said there was "blame on both sides" for the tragic events that occurred in Charlottesville over the weekend. Now, the discovery of a craigslist ad posted last Monday, almost a full week before the Charlottesville protests, is raising new questions over whether paid protesters were sourced by a Los Angeles based "public relations firm specializing in innovative events" to serve as agitators in counterprotests. The ad was posted by a company called "Crowds on Demand" and offered $25 per hour to "actors and photographers"

Fox News viewers were livid after Dana Perino—long suspected to be someone, like Megyn Kelly, who cares more about the opinions of elites in New York and D.C. than Fox News’ viewers—smeared Breitbart News as a site for Nazis on Monday. It seems like the vapid Fox News host knows less about Breitbart News and the alt-right/new right than the Cuban Missile Crisis, which is saying quite a lot. Perino lashed out at President Donald Trump on The Five for allowing Nazis and the alt-right to seek “safe harbor under his wing” before adding that “the
