Coalition for the Future of the American Workerits viewpoint
Increasingly, corporations operating on U.S. soil are seeking permission to import foreign workers on a temporary or permanent basis. In the case of lower-skilled occupations, this importation removes the incentive for businesses to improve the productivity of the jobs and raise wages. Importation of higher-skilled workers tends to lead to discrimination against older American workers and slams the door of opportunity on many American students who otherwise would have a chance at those jobs if the corporations were willing to provide minor re-training. The importation of foreign workers is especially harmful to those Americans who are under-represented in the high-tech field: blacks, Hispanics, and women.

a new report finds Americans work harder
American workers stay longer in the office, at the factory or on the farm than their counterparts in Europe and most other rich nations, and they produce more per person over the year. \ \ \ They also get more done per hour than everyone but the Norwegians, according to a U.N. report released Monday, which said the United States “leads the world in labor productivity.”\ \ \ The average U.S. worker produces $63,885 of wealth per year, more than their counterparts in all other countries, the International Labor Organization said in its report. Ireland comes in second at $55,986, followed by Luxembourg at $55,641, Belgium at $55,235 and France at $54,609.
