Industries that rely heavily on cheap labor, especially agriculture, would be devastated, leading to a rise in food prices, said John McLaren, a professor of economics at the University of Virginia, to The Street.
"It just seems like little things, here and there, just mount for us," McLaren said. "We've been inconsistent and we know one day it's just going to hit us, and we're going to take off but we haven't got there yet. We work as hard as any team I've ever been around in 24 years in the big leagues. Good things have got to start happening for us."
