Newsday latest editorial proposes fast tracking Haitian visas so that Haitians can come to the States, get jobs and send the money back to Haiti. The major problem is: What jobs are they going to get? If they get a job, it is the underlying assumption that it is one of those jobs that currently unemployed citizens do not want – whatever those jobs are. The editorial further proposes that that these Haitians take the money out of the local economy and send it somewhere else. The result will be that Government services will be further strained by people who the plan is contribute nothing to the local economy. Except for that, this is plan is exactly the same as calling for jobs to be outsourced to Haiti. Another brilliant idea from the folks who will be supporting anyone who supports President Obama in the coming elections.
