Here in America, the job titles with the most growth is the so called dirty low paid ugly jobs. (Such as work in restaurants, hotels, cleaning, road work, construction, heavy lifting and assembly line) Many businesses here in America are struggling to find enough workers who will accept these jobs without complaints and at a low rate of pay. The American business community encourages illegal alien Hispanics to come to America so they can do these jobs.

I notice that there are few Hispanics in Canada and most of the immigrants come from Asia with skills. Who does the DIRTY JOBS in Canada and are there labor shortages?

Depending on the part of Canada you are in, any number of Canadians will be doing those jobs.

Some will be white, some will be black, some will be Chinese and some will be Korean. Some will be of Polish descent, some will be of Indian descent. Some will be Lutheran and some will be Catholic. Some will be educated and some will not be. There is no "US-type, racial/ethnic pigeon-holing" of whatever you are calling "dirty jobs" in Canada. Canada does not have the huge economic underclasses that the U.S. has, that push people into what you are calling "dirty jobs" by neccessity, to survive.

With respect to: "The American business community encourages illegal alien Hispanics to come to America so they can do these jobs."
Are you really for real?!

On a slightly different note, according to this article (broken link), Immigrants in the US are having more difficuly finding jobs. Will the same thing happen in Canada?
