Why do people say that Mexicans take their jobs coming into this country?
Let's say they decide not to come. A GREAT majority work for fast food restaurants, janitorial services, construction, and fieldwork. Will the people like the minutemen who complain, actually do those jobs if they leave!!?? I would love to see these people complaining work at hot temperatures at overtime hours for minimum wage pay. Also, if they are so worried, why won't they go apply for the job!!?!? They obviously have more rights.

they work for dirt cheap, under the table. Some companys would rather hire jose for 5.00 an hour and not ask for his green card.

these people wont apply for those jobs. but kicking out the i****************s will cause some outsourcing then there wont really be any jobs. especially with the minimum wage going up. companies dont want to pay more they want to pay less.

Yeah, americans are ignorant and always blaming other people for their problems. They are fat bastards who are too lazy to get a job, yet blame the mexicans, indians, chinese, etc for it. They like sitting at home collecting welfare, food stamps, and all the other stuff the country gives them for being citizens, but... More

If we didn't have all the illegals to do the work at less than minimum wage, then companies would have to research other ways of getting the job done. For example: instead of having dirt-cheap labor on our fields picking vegetables, we would design equipment to do it- but why bother when we have the illegals?!?! Them... More
