President Trump's crackdown on illegal immigration has had a lot of impacts that many people just did not expect. We all knew that there would be benefits to stopping illegal immigration in terms of cutting down on crime and trafficking, but there are many areas of benefit that just do not get the coverage they deserve.
Gender equality in the workplace: Recent reports are showing that now as illegal immigrant construction workers are leaving the country (and of course, fewer people coming in), the construction industry is beginning to hire more female workers. These are good jobs for which regular, living wages are paid.
When a build needs to be done, workers need to be taken on. The construction industry is famous for hiring illegal migrants at low wages (and often with poor conditions), now that there are not as many to pick and choose from, the industry has to start looking to workers that it has previously dismissed.
And where is the feminist rallying call congratulating president Trump on enabling more jobs for women in typically male-dominated markets?… That's right…Crickets.
And what about minorities? What about black Americans? Are they getting a good deal under Trump? Actually yes. Black unemployment is at its lowest point, wages are rising, and the working guys and gals are being taxed even less.
Trump IS the equality president. We just have to wait for the rest of the nation to catch up and realize it.
