An alternative approach: companies could train young Americans for these jobs and not dump employees over the age of 50. (Training employees is a tax-deductible activity.)
Simple facts: (1) as anyone who works in social services can tell you, a high percentage of the folks we work with are from Chicago, Milwaukee, or Atlanta, and have come to Minneapolis because our benefits are so much better. Let's address this issue. (2)We keep raising taxes on those who work and companies that employ people, driving vast number of jobs out of state. With those jobs go the spouses and next generation workers.
Yes, let's keep them here! Some other tax base paid for them to go to 12 years of school, they paid for their own college and then MN gets to enjoy the productivity. It seems like a no-brainer.
