Dear Editor:
Dr. Baer suggests that "matching a willing worker with a willing employer" should solely be at the discretion of these parties. This would be fine, if legal residency and eventually citizenship weren't part of the package that the employer can use to negotiate with. We've already seen with the H1-B program that even skilled employees will work for less than Americans will, and will tolerate conditions approaching slavery in their search for a legal foothold in the US. Imagine what unskilled and uneducated workers, who have far more competition for jobs, will trade away in their search for citizenship here. Some have even ended up in real slavery, as prostitutes or domestics. Until countries such as Mexico have wages on a par with those offered in the US, and provide social services such as a public education to all their citizens, any system allowing the free importation of labor will use the benefits US citizens pay for as part of the "compensation package" offered to prospective workers--to the detriment of US citizens.
