Immigration: David Frum: The effectiveness of immigration as a low-wage policy | Full Comment | National Post

This column analyzes the underlying business strategy behind Texas' low-wage job-creation strategy. 

National Post: "Texas has pursued a distinctive economic strategy: drive down all costs of doing business, especially including wages.

Texas workers receive some of the lowest wages in the nation; by some metrics, the very lowest. The encouragement of heavy unskilled immigration from Mexico and central America is an integral – even indispensable – element of the Texas low-wage job-creation strategy."
