Markowitz to Attend Anti-Immigrant Rally


From 1010 WINS:

Protesters are expected to rally in Brooklyn Friday against using illegal Chinese and Latino workers in dangerous construction jobs. 

Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz is expected to attend the rally.

Labor officials say the immigrant workers are being used in life threatening jobs in building a 33-story hotel in downtown Brooklyn.

Of course, the alternative is to deny these jobs to the Chinese and Latino immigrants. But if the developer is willing to hire them, and the immigrants are willing to take the jobs, that is what is known as a consensual transaction among adults. In a consensual transaction, both parties are better off than without the transaction; otherwise, they wouldn’t agree to it. So why does Marty Markowitz want to deny employment opportunities to Chinese and Latino immigrants?
