Funny how from 1776 - 1965, the dishes in restaurants still got washed without massive illegal immigration. How did they do it?

Beautiful! But part of the reason is that dishwashing is beneath most Americans these days. That doesn't lessen your argument though.

when our economy crashes hard due to a burgeoning socialist system and failure to maintain a cultural stability, nothing will be "beneath" americans. I don't believe any job is now, either.

Dishwashing and other service-related jobs weren't beneath Americans back in the days when welfare wasn't so readily available. People actually had to work for a living back in those days instead of sucking the government tit.

That's only due to bad parenting.

Partly because in most restaurants, machines actually wash the dishes. You don't need some cheap laborer with 8 kids going to school at $10,000 each per year who makes $4 an hour and can't afford health insurance or to pay his own doctor bills for his family.

A friend of mine's dad was a pilot laid off by TWA in the late 80s. His father found work at a deli in a local supermarket making minimum wage.

When you have a family to feed, nothing is beneath you.
