"The Pew Hispanic Center, whose demographic and labor market work is highly regarded, estimated in a 2009 report that 12 percent of the workforce in food preparation and serving in 2008 was undocumented."
That equates to almost 1 Million jobs that are being held by illegal aliens in the restaurant industry alone. Since the Pew Hispanic Center tends to use "conservitive" numbers when estimating the number of illegal aliens the true number is most likely higher.
The U.S. unemployment rate would drop by almost 8% if these jobs were not being held by illegal aliens. In addition the wages for food service jobs would also increase yet the largest union in the food service industry still promotes the use of illegal alien labor. That certainly is a good reason for employees to give the SEIU the boot since it is obvious they are on the side of the employer not the employee. Though with a union that obviously caters to and is infested with criminals that is not easy or safe to do.
Traditionaly almost a quarter of these jobs were held by teenagers and the teenage unemployment rate is almost 25%.
