But I’m certain those same folks will be HAPPY to stand in a hot dusty field and pick sugar beets for $4 and hour.
But also during your next trip to the supermarket, remember that the 43 cent orange you pick-up isn't JUSTIFIED by the presence of illegals, it is CAUSED by the presence of illegals.
The entire argument reminds me of the old country and western song, “Everybody wants to get to Heaven, but nobody wants to die.”
Consider that those wages arent JUSTIFIED by the presence of illegals, theyre CAUSED by the presence of illegals.
Yes this commenter is correct. Competition is what makes Capitalism work, and cheating capitalism is what makes it fail. The illegals come here and get money under the table. They don't pay the taxes that Americans pay for the same work so they are effectively paid twice as much. There are many poor people that will work all day for $10.00 an hour. That will increase the price of vegetables a little but it will also dramatically reduce the burden on society and increase the taxes flowing into the government.
It is time, no way past time to send the illegals home!
