When businesses say they are having trouble finding Americans to take jobs in construction, manufacturing, hospitality and other service work, what is generally best for the country? Is it better for businesses to raise the pay and try harder to recruit non-working Americans even if it causes prices to rise, or is it better for the government to bring in new foreign workers to help keep business costs and prices down?

Dates:

Better for businesses to raise the pay and try harder to recruit non-working Americans even if it causes prices to rise

Better for the government to bring in new foreign workers to help keep business costs and prices down
