Its not that americans are too lazy, its that the illegals will work for less.
Wal-Mart mentality through and through.
Would you work out in the hot sun for 8 bucks an hour 10+ hrs a day picking fruit from a tree? Most likely, NO. Why not? because you can work for 8 bucks an hour working at any retail store of your choice in the a/c and do far less work. Why would the farm owner pay more if someone is there doing the work?
That "jobs americans won't do" line is bullchit and worn out.
Tell me the minimum wage hasn't affected how jobs rank on pay scale....and I'll call you liar.
Keys to success-
LET PEOPLE FAIL! i.e. stop lifelong welfare, foodstamps and other handouts. They will be forced to work to live. If they don't work, tough, start leaning on your family...maybe they will give a damn, cuz I don't.
CLOSE THE BORDERS! i.e. Stop the influx of potential terrorists, drug trafficking, illegals and more. Give the border guards authority to shoot on site, deport, chase with dogs, whatever you like. The message has to be conveyed somehow and our current policy of detain and deport (if that even happens....) is hardly a deterrent. Seeing your friend get blasted in the leg while trying to run will help make the message clear. Is it cruel? Maybe, but no more cruel than forcing me and everyone else to support these illegal activities.
FINE THE EMPLOYERS! If the employers know there are penalties, they will be less apt to do it. Of course, this requires actual enforcement. Thats not too hard though. We just have to pay a clown to go around and ask for ID on a very irregular schedule. He finds workers that are not legit, he walks over to the owner and writes a big assed ticket.
