    ...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.

    How about 15 per hour plus partial benefits.....that's a start. No American should do that job for any less.

    That is a very high number, enough to kill many millions of jobs.

    I'm not saying raise the minimum wage.

    I'm saying, eliminate the competition from immigrant workers, and let American workers benefit from the resulting labor shortage.

    My brother works at Facebook, and he tells me he is the only American citizen in his unit.

    We conservatives weren't paying attention to this issue, even trying to win political correctness points by being pro-immigration.

    The American worker is now good and screwed thanks to all the immigrants he has to compete with on the labor market.

    Kick out all the Mexicans and South Americans and the market for Americans to take the job opens up.

    Illegals are depressing the job market.

    We also have to crack down on H1-B visas, which technical companies are abusing.

    The Democrat Party's embrace of blacks cost them the South.

    The Democrat Party's embrace of illegal aliens cost them the Midwest and the Rust Belt.

    With the Western states already solidly Republican, that leaves the Democrats with the Pacific Coast, the Northeast, and Hawaii.

    The pay is crap, the working conditions are crap but more than anything else, its just plain hard work.

    That's why American's won't do it.

    Thanks to RWNJs, family farms are going under. But, have no fear because pino trump's 1% buddies are right there, ready to buy them out for pennies on the dollar.
