“Do we really believe that the only thing keeping bosses from paying people more is the presence of low-wage medium semi-skilled labor from South of this artificial border? Is that really what we believe? We know that if that border is closed, it isn’t going to be closed to capital. It isn’t going to closed to goods. If you have a border that can be crossed by capital looking for the highest return on investment, or goods looking for the highest price, but labor is chained to it’s country of origin, how is that going to work to the benefit of working people? By definition it doesn’t. By definition it immiserates the working class. Divide and conquer.” —Tim Wise Speaks the Truth on White Privilege (via azspot)
