The left is arguing over whether open borders are bad for American workers and unions, or that we need to support migrants who’ve suffered from US economic policy and military action. And yet:
“There is nothing fundamentally low-wage about migrant work. Migrant workers are paid less because they are more politically vulnerable. Even in spite of that vulnerability, migrant workers will struggle to raise their wages and working conditions. End the state’s facilitation of migrants’ specific vulnerability to employers, and the things (Angela) Nagle is really complaining about — the erosion of workers’ rights and economic power — will be fixed.”
No Gods, No Masters, No Borders, No States!
