Back in the day I took any crappy job that I could get. I don't think that things have changed that much. When did these jobs become "jobs that Americans won't do"? It happened soon as the illegals moved in. Not before. Pretty much every region could find enough workers to wash dishes, do landscaping and clean houses. My nephew is working his way through college by doing landscaping. There are very few illegals in his area. But the job still gets done. People who can't afford to hire Americans either don't landscape or do it themselves. The print shops that I visited in Jersey, Minnesota and California were loaded with illegals. The ones in other states were not. If one company cheats and hires illegals the others must follow in order to compete. You can't survive paying a living wage with health care, over time, sick days and benefits while your competition hires people who will work a 12 shift with no breaks and no O.T. You are either forced to cheat the system yourself or to go out of business. It is all driven by corporate greed. When the illegals showed up, thats when we got the "jobs that Americans won't do." We did them before they got here.
