74. That just means you're in a field where it doesn't happen. Head in sand.

There are certain fields where it's more likely to happen.

It doesn't happen in my field, for various reasons. I didn't plan it that way. That (foreign workers being hired in America for a fraction of the wages) wasn't a problem when I entered my field 30 years ago. But I'm lucky. That doesn't happen in my field.

But not to recognize that it happens to plenty of others is pretty unempathetic and ignorant of the damage being done to your co-citizens. Doesn't mean we want others from other countries not to make a living wage in their fields, but it's just wrong what companies are doing on a large scale these days. It's ruining entire fields for American workers and adding to the working poor class here.
