Lack of incentive? I don't think minimum wage is high enough or that most people receive enough benefits. However, I blame U.S. workers (in general, of course) for laziness and a lack of incentive. Is it not incentive enough to want to feed your family and pay your bills with enough left over to hopefully save something toward your retirement? Where do you think all of the Bakken workers come from? Most of them aren't from ND and they didn't only come here for high wages. The incentive was that there were jobs here when there weren't jobs where they came from. And they came because they are motivated, not lazy. I know many of them who have families where they come from and they send money home. Most of it, including the service industry, is hard work and many of the benefits (higher than average wages) are canceled out by what those employees give up to be here and the working conditions.

The MDN can delete as many posts as they want. They can't delete Google, where any person can easily search for the sentence, "Every year, U.S. businesses with job openings for technology specialists resort to hiring thousands of bright young foreigners."
