I can guess that the vast majority of this demographic are not going to be net producers – they are not going to add to the treasury, for whatever that’s worth. They will be drawing big fat checks from you and me month after month, year over year, in the form of free healthcare, food and cash assistance, disability payments and tax credits. I am also out on a limb here in assuming that the majority of these dreamers are relatively unskilled and/or uneducated, and are thus going to be taking primarily lower paying jobs. This will pressure the job market – which by the way, is not getting better. Economy 101, employers will fill unskilled jobs with the most cost-effective option – those willing to accept less.
