    3 quick things you can do to increase the impact of our TV ad campaign to reduce immigration & RAISE wages

    [​IMG]


    1. Click on the image of the ad above and watch the ad. It is important for the recorded number of YouTube views to rise quickly to get media attention.

    2. Click here to send a free message to your 3 Members of Congress so they are aware that wages in many occupations are still below wages in the 1970s.

    3. If you have time, read the rest of this email so you will have new ways to inform your friends and family about the challenges posed by immigration at one million a year.



    Don't let high immigration slow down the momentum for U.S. wage increases.

    Our latest cable TV and internet ad campaign responds to a looming crisis here in the nation's capital:

    Large numbers of politicians, their staffs and the lobbying class believe that wages for Americans have risen enough. They know that, without maintaining and even increasing mass immigration, the labor market will continue to tighten and force wages higher. And they apparently don't want that to happen.
    We're running this ad nationally and here in the Washington D.C. area to make sure politicians can't claim to be unaware of the fact that inflation-adjusted wages have still not caught up to what they were 45 years ago.

    And we want to constantly remind them and members of the news media that the annual immigration number can play a role in whether wages start to stagnate again.


    GOOD WAGE NEWS DOESN'T MEAN THE JOB IS DONE


    A lot of people are celebrating that the recent strong economy of jobs growth has tightened the labor market enough so that wages have been rising at every level of the employment ladder. Pres. Trump celebrated this in his 2019 State of the Union address. We include a clip of that at the beginning of the ad as our way to celebrate, too.

    But we're concerned that a lot of people are not aware that wages still have a long way to climb.

    The ad begins with Pres. Trump extolling the recent rapid wage growth.

    THEN THE NARRATOR SAYS:

    The economy is moving in the right direction.


    But adjusted for inflation, wages in many occupations are still below 1970s wages.

    And allowing immigration to continue at one million a year -- flooding labor markets -- could block further wage growth.

    Isn't it time to reduce immigration numbers and allow wages to rise more?

    Let's keep giving Americans a raise.


    On the screen at the end are these word:

    IMMIGRATION:
    1 MILLION A YEAR
    IS TOO MUCH

    HARD FOR LABOR MARKETS TO TIGHTEN WITH IMMIGRATION AT ONE MILLION EACH YEAR

    Since 1990, the federal government has been giving out lifetime work permits to around one million new legal immigrants every year.

    That has been one of the factors in why wages in so many occupations have not been able to climb out of the pit they dropped into during the 1980s and early 1990s. Wages generally do not rise until the labor market is tight. And it is difficult for the labor market to tighten when the government is adding about as many foreign workers every month as the economy is adding jobs.

    Pew Research stated last year this astounding fact about average wages for Americans:

    . . . in real terms, average hourly earnings peaked more than 45 years ago: The $4.03-an-hour rate recorded in January 1973 had the same purchasing power that $23.68 would today."
    Please help us spread and elevate this important message: Don't let high immigration slow down the momentum for U.S. wage increases.

    THANKS,
