What the NAHB believes is immigration reform is really an update Bracero bill where immigrants will be allowed to be sponsored by a single employer but not have an wage and hour protections or safety regulations, and their employers won't have to pay employment taxes on these workers either. If the workers complain they can be deported based on a report by the employer.
What the NAHB wants is a legal way to import workers who will be tied like a slave to their membership. There are more than enough construction workers in this country and if wages were equal to what they were in 1970 in today's dollars young people would be standing in lines to join apprenticeship programs, oh snap, they all ready are but NAHB members continue to employ undocumented workers and pay them below minimum wage and charge us $1m for a house.

Hey NAHB we already have plenty of construction workers who are fully trained and willing to work. We have apprenticeship programs with on the job training and day and night schools to further their construction skills. Quit trying to bring in unskilled, undocumented workers, that you can cheat out of a living wage to the delight of unscrupulous money grabbing contractors
