Minimum Wage Outlook
CBO - OC recently released a finding concerning the minimum wage trends taking into consideration the population of illegal aliens immigrants and other foreign visa workers inside the United States.
The Congressional Budget Office Occupational Committee indicates that if all the illegal aliens were to be removed inside the United States work force it would be an almost automatic raise for millions of legal citizens holding a part-time or full time job.
If the 11 million illegal aliens were to be deported from the United States the effect on the domestic minimum wage would move upward to about $14.32 per labor hour.
The elimination of 11 million illegal workers from the U.S. Domestic workforce would mean that the legal citizen working close to the minimum wage would receive a dramatic increase in wages due to real time honest market pressures.
If you want to make $15.00 an hour, reduce the workforce creating free enterprise market pressures concerning labor availability and jobs/tasks to be performed.
When the imported illegal labor is removed from the labor market the employers are forced to bid up hourly rates and salaries in the free market.
Less labor availability equals more money per hour.
