In a shocking turn of events, it now appears that business owners and Democrats under President Biden’s leadership want to replace jobs in Johnstown, Pennsylvania, with workers they bring to the United States from Afghanistan instead of giving Americans those jobs.
Johnstown, Pennsylvania, is a former steel producing town which was home to the Bethlehem Steel Corporation.
According to Breitbart, Democrat Marie Mock deputy mayor of the city council appears to have doubled down on the plan in a recent Facebook post.
Mock took to Facebook and wrote, “The reason I was told this is even being explored is that there is a lack of workers to fill jobs. I’m not just talking about service industry jobs, but good-paying jobs … some are union jobs, too. Look around and ask business owners. It’s all over the news, too. Help wanted signs are posted everywhere. The comment I hear is that people don’t want to work, and I agree.”
Mock then noted, “I’m going to say this, and if you want to jump down my throat, go ahead … but our own citizens aren’t ambitious enough to get off their a$$es and get a job and support (sic) themselves and their families. Face it, we’re turning into a lazy country waiting for the next handout. So why not open it up to folks that want to work at any job, and will do it gladly? The folks they’re looking to relocate are skilled. Just stop with the stereotype of Middle Easterners.”
Sadly, residents of the town say there is already very few good jobs available. Most of the good jobs also left when the steel plant was shutdown and now Americans are very unhappy with the decisions being made by Democrats of Johnstown.
Local activist, John DeBartola, who is against the idea to bring in Afghans stated stated, “City residents do not benefit in any way. When will those in power help the city residents who are struggling?”
