    So how much do you think someone should make for something like shelling crab?

    I have many patients that shell crabs and lobsters and shrimp.

    They need to make just enough to buy their oxycontin from the street.

    Most Americans won't take hi-tech jobs because they're not qualified. That's one reason H1-B workers are necessary.

    you can make up to 4,000 a month in alaska. That is why they probably can't get any americans. If they do want to do that for a job they are going to go to where the money is at.
