Washington State Partnership Network for Hispanic Workforce Development: An Application of Interactive On-line Learning
Goal: Expand education and workforce training access available to Mexican populations living in Oregon and Washington, USA through trans-national Internet facilitated teaching and learning collaboration.
Note that the goal is not to educate Hispanics as the title suggests, the goal is to educate Mexicans. (aka foreign citizens)
In many US labor market regions, including many in the Pacific Northwest, Hispanic immigrants are the most rapidly growing demographic labor force group and their preparation to fill business and labor skill gaps is critical to regional and national economic growth.
As an American worker I can't say that I'm too thrilled that we are importing "the most rapidly growing" labor force from another country.
Basic literacy and language skills are a current barrier to successful training of immigrants to fill living wage employment opportunities expected to be available within rapidly growing segments of the US and Washington State economy over the next 10 years.
One minute they are "doing the jobs that Americans won't do" and the next we are using tax dollars to help prepare them for "living wage employment." It's very ironic considering that these same elites are the ones who claim that there is a major shortage of "living wage" (what is that?) jobs as it is.
In addition, the initiative will improve the ability of ordinary Mexicans to obtain living wage employment or start successful businesses no matter where they live.
Where they should be living is Mexico. It's not our fault their government ran that country into the ground. They have a huge supply of natural resources and they claim to have a huge hardworking labor force, what's the problem?
This taxpayer funded project even has a flow chart with all arrows pointing to American citizens getting screwed.
It is mind boggling to see how much time, money and effort are going into educating another countries population, especially when they are criminal aliens, when our own education system needs some work.
