It's more like 'jobs people like you don't want Americans to do'.

Who's the "you" in the reference and which Americans are exempt from work?

The term "Americans" covers a broad range of nationalities from Canadians to Chileans and I don't care who earns an honest living in agriculture as long as the work gets done at a cost that our US economy can tolerate.

The 'you' quite simply refers to you. No one is exempt from work except the corporate conservatives who are trying to turn this country into a plantation.

In America, American means American, but your statement reveals a lot about your ideology. The price of labor is determined by supply and demand, which normally conservatives believe in. The labor supply siders of course believe in large supplies of labor to drive down wages regardless of what damage it does to working Americans; that's Americans as in USA in case you got confused again.
