alprova said...What official bureau has confirmed this?

The Bureau of Labor statistics. The range has been 12-14% of the eligible work force age 16 to 65.

alprova said...Are people going for it now? I'm sure there are, but you can bet they are looking for greener pastures and will jump your business model the minute they have the chance.

The employer pays more than those doing like work including the benefits cost ex matching social security and administrative cost of those included in the MSA. Employers list social security match as an employee benefit. The attrition rate is low since people know the deal coming in. Most have a working spouse and some have coverage through that spouse. I don't know how many kids they have but I suspect few or none. I won't reveal the pay rate which may identify the company but it exceeds any of the examples you used.

I understand your fear of getting too far from the government teat but some people see value in retaining their independence. Do you encourage others to suckling to ease your own conscience or is it due to some paternal instinct you are burdened with?

"Why illegals, would you not allow current unemployed citizens that opportunity?"

Because anyone who does not have a job at this point and time, doesn't want a job. Unemployment is at or around 6%-6.5% Jobs are out there for anyone who wants one.

The eligible labor participation rate is the lowest in decades. Why are welfare cost going up if jobs are so plentiful? That unemployment percent is a very misleading number.

"Or do you like the low cost that comes with their low pay?"

alprova said...Why would you ask me that question? I have never hired an illegal worker in my life.

Have you ever bought anything produced by an illegal worker?

Really? You wouldn't be exaggerating now would you?

Only if you are exaggerating your personal experience which is very possible. Why would yours be different than many others?

alprova said...The United States Government does many things correctly and efficiently.

The NSA (ARE YOU SURE?), NASA ( WHY NO LONGER ACTIVE?), Dept. of Agriculture (THAT IS A JOKE), Bankruptcy Courts, CDC, CIA, Coast Guard, DOL, FBI, FCC, FRS, FDA, GAO, HUD, U.S. Mint, NFIP, National Guard, NHIC, NHTSA, NOAA, National Park Service, OSHA, Peace Corps, SEC, SBA, Tricare, and the Weather Service are all prime examples of agencies that all qualify under that criteria.

You are naïve. Most of those could be done much more efficiently.

alprova said...You worry too much about pennies that you might be paying. Your taxes have not increased a dime in at least six years, unless you have earned more.

The debt has exploded higher plus it is the principle not the amount. Of course you couldn't care less the impact on future generations of the failed government programs.

alprova said... I'd have checked you out first and decided to blow off the interview, after finding out that your compensation package sucked.

Good, you would be looking for something we would not provide and would not have to listen to your greedy demands. I have assisted people starting businesses that followed my advice to avoid getting involved with benefits, their administrative cost and other headaches but pay people well, in fact 15% above the average in the MSA for like work. Allow people to decide for what and how they wanted to spend their money. We did invite vendors in to explain what they had to offer and at what cost for those that had an interest. The business is still successful and growing but the ACA may require the employer to establish a healthcare savings account for each employee which still puts the employee in charge of what they buy from whom.

alprova said...You're a hard shelled man. If you were an employer, I shudder to think what life would be like working for you.

Don't even try to imagine it, I would never knowingly hire anyone like you.

alprova said...I could write a book about Medicare waste and fraud I have witnessed just this year.

Include it in that book you wrote before about how much more efficient and accurate government does everything than any private entity could ever do. Your observation are like a poll, you can multiply your observations thousands of times to get an idea of just how out of control it is. But, you and others have said it would cost more to prevent than it would save which is more BS. You can rest assured the same could be found in essentially every welfare program funded by the government and all of the fraud and pilfering is not by the recipients.
