The US needs to hire more Mexican workers instead of deporting them, according to many owners of small businesses around the nation. From small construction companies in Dallas, Texas, to chains of Mexican restaurants in San Francisco and orange farms in Florida: all these small businesses confirm they are dependent on low skilled workers (like Mexican workers) to keep growing, according to a report elaborated by The Wall Street Journal.
As hiring accelerates and the labor market tightens thanks to a steady U.S. recovery, employers who need low-skilled workers are increasingly struggling to fill vacancies. Mexican workers, who form the labor backbone of industries like hospitality, construction and agriculture, are in short supply. On the ground in the U.S., many employers report the worker shortage is driving up wages, which is good news for low-skilled workers. It is also driving up costs, however, which could hamper investment and fuel inflation.
