Another case of the illegals doing the work that shiftless Americans will not do.

You must be one of those people who think you're so important that you should be paid based on how lazy you are.

Offering to pay people peanuts at a time when everything is sky high at the grocery store and the gas stations is the reason. When people work, they like to be paid a fair wage in order to provide for their families. Not everybody gets paid under the table, then supplements that salary with their kids' entitlements. We'll leave that kind of trickery to the illegals. Is it any wonder they have not endeared themselves to hard-working Americans?

Oh boo hoo! People are paid what they are worth. A drugged out school drop out plots their own course so does the world owe them a high living style for being a ZERO ? Don't think so.

That is why illegal aliens are paid less than Americans for the same job. Go past a construction site that employs illegals. They always have twice to three times the workers. They don't work hard fast or well but they are cheep and can't complain.
In addition you can get them to remove asbestos, mold etc. and do other hazardous jobs without the expense of safety equipment, insurance etc.
