Protecting American Standard of Living

RECEIVED Fri., June 30, 2006

Dear Editor,
   When employers have an unlimited supply of labor what is the incentive to pay a decent wage ["Page Two: A Prayer Too Far," June 30]? Is labor a commodity that when the supply is high the price is low? What is the harm in protecting the standard of living for Americans? What is the chance that we can stop a natural migration of a populace intent on improving their standard of living?
