U.S. workers are disadvantaged by having to pay income taxes to this lousy federal government instead of getting paid in cash that is tax-free. Illegals can work cheaper and still make money that way. The taxpaying citizens pay for the education, medication, and incarceration of the illegals. That’s how it works in Texas.
If all foreign nationals in the USA were to become legal many would probably be fired.
If someone working at a company 10 years under the table starts working as a statutory employee wouldn't the employer be liable for back payroll and other taxes?
It works that way in California too. Illegals work under the table almost everywhere for cash - but collect all kinds of welfare benefits for themselves and, especially their children. So they get to keep the cash AND collect the benefits too.
It is unsustainable as more and more productive citizens flee the state and there are fewer to fleece. Meanwhile, immigrants, legal and illegal continue to pour into the state, welcomed by lavish benefits and sanctuary cities and a pro-illegal immigrant government.
We’ve stopped eating out because of illegals cooking in kitchens with unsanitary personal habits. I think brain worm, chagas, TB, etc. is a lot more widespread than the fedgov is telling us.
