Re: Joe Guzzardi's Column: Leisure Industry Considers A New Idea (For It)—Hiring Americans!

Because I live in Massachusetts, Guzzardi's columns about Cape Cod and the H-2B visa scam piqued my interest.

When I was growing up, many of my high school and college friends would get summer jobs on Cape Cod, Martha's Vineyard, and Nantucket.  When I visited, they would be living two or three in a room, much as they do in college dorms.

And they were having the best summer of their lives.

So I knew that Cape Cod's alleged concerns about not finding summer help  and therefore desperately need more non-immigrant H-2B visas were bogus.

And now we discover that, as Guzzardi predicted in his column, the Cape Cod Job Fairreaching out to American workers—was a huge success.

More than 300 people per hour attended with hundreds of job applications submitted. [Hyannis Job Fair Deemed a Success, By Matthew M. Burke, Cape Cod Times, April 15, 2008]

There's a good lesson here: Americans are ready, willing and able to work—as long as Congress and the cheap labor lobby doesn't make it impossible for them.
