    The Consequences of Low Wage (Third World) Workers
    Report; Posted on: 2007-04-06 22:48:01 [ Printer friendly / Instant flyer ]

    While many European Americans continue to indulge in endless distractions which amount to nothing, a growing number are seeing the handwriting on the wall with regard to their genetic and political future.

    Immigration reforms that increase the number of low-skilled workers entering the United States threaten to impose a high cost on taxpayers, says a study being released today. 
    The Heritage Foundation report calculates that for every $1 unskilled workers pay in taxes they receive about $3 in government benefits, including Medicaid, food stamps, public housing and other welfare programs. 
    It should serve as a warning to President Bush and lawmakers proposing to give illegal aliens a so-called path to citizenship or what critics call amnesty, said Rep. Lamar Smith of Texas, ranking Republican on the Judiciary Committee, which handles immigration bills.



    "We need to make sure any legislation does not further strain government services and taxpayers' wallets," said Mr. Smith, who will make public the report for the conservative Washington think tank today. 
    The report on low-skilled workers, who are defined as those without a high school diploma, did not focus on immigrants, but its authors say 25 percent of legal immigrants and 50 percent of illegal aliens fall into the category. About 9 percent of native-born Americans lack a high school diploma. 
    Using data from 2004, the report shows the average household headed by a low-skilled worker paid $9,689 in taxes but received $32,138 in benefits a year. The more than $22,000 difference is the "tax burden" which rises to $1.1 million over the worker's lifetime.
