24.9% Unemployment

24.9% teen unemployment and Big Government says:  "Screw you."
  • Countless millions are unemployed.
  • Both political parties fall all over themselves to import millions of brand new LEGAL immigrants to compete with American workers.
  • With one hand Congress pays Americans not to work, while importing foreigners with the other.

The Obama administration is going to great lengths to make sure some 100,000 foreign student workers being brought to this country are not disappointed and get summer jobs in America . . . . while Americans go unemployed.  Federal programs help foreigners get jobs in the U.S. with no thought given to American citizens.  Foreigners get to enter a U.S.-sponsored work-travel program.
Today, more than 50 ­million Americans of traditional working age are not employed, and yet a growing number of domestic jobs — from hotel clerks to nurses to computer scientists — are being performed by foreign-born workers.

Yes they do become Americans.  But there are billions of people in the world
and America cannot even find jobs for those born here.

Overall, teen unemployment rose in 17 states and Washington, D.C., between April 2011 and April 2012, and fell in 32 states.
