WTF: Politico just added THIS occupation to the list of jobs Americans won’t do?

Politico has a new piece up on Paul Ryan, moderate Republicans and DACA, but this passage caught our eye…

According to Politico, we need cheap immigrant labor because now construction is an occupation American’s just won’t do:

Gotta serve the donors: “While some moderates back the employment verification system, they say it must be accompanied by a guest worker program allowing immigrants to work on farms and in construction, for example, jobs many Americans won’t take.” https://t.co/PPtjUOscVe

This is, to put it mildly, BS:

So now the amnesty lobby is adding “construction” to the list of jobs Americans supposedly won’t do? https://t.co/t1mmTOIyIs

As do millions of other Americans.

Now, this is the real reason but Politico didn’t write that:

That’s a myth created by those who want to pay less for labor.
