Trucker Shortage?

I found this one pretty amazing, they are wanting to bring over Indian truck drivers into the United States claiming there is a huge shortage of truck drivers in the US.

Now who here believes that? But that's the mantra for global labor arbitrage, to claim a shortage.


Teamsters say:

Teamsters Union spokesman Galen Munroe told WND the plan "is yet another example of corporations exploiting a visa program to replace highly trained, hard-working Americans with cheap labor from overseas."

I just hope the Teamsters can now influence the SEIU on their constant endorsement of "comprehensive" immigration reform which so far has targeted US jobs, especially through guest worker Visas, now that it's happening to them maybe they will be more vocal about endorsing bills that really are about US worker displacement and wage arbitrage.
