President Donald Trump’s low-immigration policy is spiking wages for restaurant workers in South Carolina’s Hilton Head resort before the November election, according to the Washington Post. The Post reported the complaints of restaurateur Steve Carb who was forced to raise wages to fill just 900 of the 1,000 open jobs at his 12 restaurants in Hilton Head:
Dishwashers earn $13 an hour instead of the $10 they earned a couple of years ago. Line cooks are paid $15 to $18 an hour, instead of $13 to $15. Additional overtime costs mean tweaking the menu to stay profitable, from switching to smaller shrimp to raising the price of a plate of fish and chips by 30 cents. “The whole island is a disaster zone right now,” said Carb, president and founder of SERG Restaurant Group. “It’s been a nightmare.” -- http://www.breitbart.com/immigration/2018/05/22/trump-rising-wages-are-nightmare-says-restauranteur/
Later in that article they quote South Carolina’s Sen. Lindsey Graham:
We need more legal immigration… I don’t want green cards just for computer engineers. If you are out there working in the fields, if you are a construction worker, I want some of those people to have a way to stay here, because if you are running a business and you have a guest worker who is really good, and would add value to our country, I want them to have a chance to get a green card. I just don’t want to be a country in the future of just computer engineers or high-tech people.
Edit: Just so you don't think I was kidding about the lying:
Based on this limited snapshot, we do not find any evidence to confirm the argument that employers are using H-1B visa holders to push down wages in these particular occupations. We do, however, find that there are systematic wage differences in these computer technology and financial services occupations by race, ethnicity, gender, marital status, and children in the household. -- https://www.aier.org/research/h-1b-visas-no-impact-wages
You can trust them, though. They did a study.
