...he said an American tried it and gave up after one box. Question. How much does this farmer pay a fruit picker to pick one box of fruit? Obviously, just enough to entice an illegal alien, but not enough to entice an American who has other employment options. Solution. Pay your workers more, enough so someone can actually live off what you are paying him, maybe enough for groceries, rent, utilties, with a little extra left to go to the movies on Saturday. Illegal aliens don't need that. They live 12 to an apartment, eat rice and beans, and send the rest of their money to their families in Mexico or Central America. So, the farmer wants us to let in illegal aliens so he doesn't have to pay a living wage for an American. So, why are the Democrats AGAINST a living wage for American workers? This is why Trump won the election, because American workers realized the Democrats have abandoned them.
