High Priests of Finance Plan World of Migrant Workers

While Congress is busy grandstanding before the American public, pretending to tackle immigration and labor issues with the cooperation of an oppressive Mexican government, the high priests of finance from the 25 member-nation EU and their counterparts from 13 Asian economies plan for a global economy based on dismantling protectionism and increasing migration.
Ministers had a detailed discussion on opportunities and challenges posed by the process of globalisation and the emerging international division of labor. Therefore, while protectionism has to be resisted, effective policies need to address the challenges posed by adjustment costs and to seize the opportunities provided by globalisation.

They further agreed that such polices should include a certain number of common features valid across all countries, irrespective of their level of income, notwithstanding important differences in immediate priority areas for action and practical details.
One massive unprotected global labor camp.
Key to seizing the opportunities is a climate conducive to business and infrastructure investment, flexible product and labour markets, abundance of adequately qualified labor, functioning financial markets and a policy focus on education and research and development. Of equal importance to tackle the challenges is an adequate system of social protection, with a focus on empowering disadvantaged and vulnerable groups.
At the expense of the middle class, of course - not the rich.
They concurred that adequate protection of vulnerable groups both in developed and less developed countries does not only have social and humanitarian value, but that a well designed system can enhance incentives to work and support productivity growth.

A functioning social safety net, which enhances the right balance between security and flexibility, can also help secure broad and sustained support for an open and liberal system for global trade and investment which is the backbone of a dynamic global economy. In the ASEM context, the exchange of best practices regarding labor market flexibility and social protection systems is most welcome.
People must be healthy enough to work, but not wealthy enough that they have time to think.
They agreed that both countries of origin and destination of migration had to safeguard smooth and orderly migration flows, combat human trafficking and exploitation of migrants and enable remittances to be transferred safely and cheaply. Ministers opined that increasing migration flows require intensive cooperation between countries of origin and countries of destination.
By the time they're through with the world, there will be no such thing as public resources or the 'middle class.' Everyone will be a 'temp' or a migrant worker clamoring for sustenance from their elite industrialist overlords.

Immigration is not the problem. People who are comfortable where they are DO NOT move.

Global finance is a global problem that requires a global solution. But, we can start by striking at the heart of this grotesque financial edifice - the FED.

Great article. The banking terrorist are plotting against and have pretty much suceeded in enacting class warfare against the middle class to turn, what was once the middle class into a slave class.

Right on citisucks, right after they tricked the middle class into refinancing their mortgage, guaranteeing they'll be stuck in debt until they die. And forced to take several shitty jobs to scrape on by.

I got an excellent comment on this piece at Daily Kos:

Nail on the head qrswave!

Ok, GATS mode 4 has had repeated proposals via the WTO to classify "Services" as something to be traded. Little do people realize that those "services are actually people. They are talking about trading people via guest worker programs and they are also going to use WTO trade authority to supersede any nation-state's immigration policy.

This is going to create labor arbitrage to the level of serfdom.

ok, back to the Senate. In Specter amendment, SA 3192, title IV, subtitle A, are the major labor arbitrage guest worker Visas. Specter SA 3192 amends the McCain-Kennedy bill S.2454. They will decimate a series of American workers, most predominately US engineers and computer scientists who have been under attack through outsourcing and general labor arbitrage since 2001.

Dorgan has introduced to the "seemingly dead, but could come back alive" S.2454 bill an amendment, SA 3411 (this is to Specters amendment SA3192) to basically get rid of the entire guest worker arbitrage Visas in the Specter amendment.

Now check out the snake of amendments I just listed just to even discover the labor arbitrage guest worker visas in this legislation.

I am so, so glad you're raising awareness on this plan for currently the labor arbitrage issue or "insourcing" which is the counter to outsourcing issue is getting buried deep with the "race card" mantra.

As usual, our Congress works against us while pretending to work on our behalf.

That's deep.

Dig this about the IMF's 1944 New Hampshire Party.


And this:

Some Irish guys and a black-Native American guy talk about immigration


Ironically I started a title company in NH for some guys and I'll tell you there are going to be a lot of people f*cked up with their mortgages in the coming years. By virtue of not owning anything except a car and a motorcycle I don't have to fear anybody taking anything from me, or losing it.

Have a good day, and watch your back.

So what do we do? This global labor arbitrage has me on the ropes working two jobs. How do we fight back and claim our future from these corporate thugs and their financial goons?
