Slavery is still alive and growing within the USA

House Approves Farmworker Amnesty, Promotes Visa Workers over Americans

Nearly all House Democrats, plus a group of 34 Republicans, voted Wednesday to approve an amnesty for illegal farmworkers.


The bill, H.R. 5038, would likely amnesty more than a million illegal aliens, and it also subsidizes farm companies that hire more H-2A visa workers instead of hiring Americans.
Those subsidies for hiring foreign H-2A workers include rules to cut the H-2A workers’ pay below the expected 2020 rates, plus massive housing subsidies for the migrant workers. The biggest subsidy, however, is that employers will be allowed to dangle the prize of Americans’ citizenship to H-2A migrants who agree to work at low wages for long hours in harsh conditions.
There is no cap on the number of H-2A migrant workers who can be imported into the United States.
The subsidies for hiring H-2As will also discourage farm companies from buying the American-made farm machinery that reduces the need for farmworkers.

Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib did not vote.

Huge farming corporations would rather hire at low wages and have the ability to dangle the promise of a Green Card at migrant workers than invest in modern labor saving equipment.

I thought Elizabeth Warren was from your part of the world.
Funny how that worked out. During her last Senate race , she promised to work for the people of the Commonwealth full time. But I guess her memory is as bad as Biden's. She has missed some important votes lately , hopefully she'll skip Trump's Trial, too.

Here's a funny thing most people would not understand.
Her local office is located in the JFK Federal Building in Boston. At the former home to the Boston FBI offices.
