Can't. You illegals undercut us all. We have to pay TAXES, so we can't work as cheaply as you can.

Oh yea, like picking strawberries is going to pay enough for you to support your family. Historically it is the poor people who do basic jobs like these.

My friends and I did it during the summers as kids, but got pushed out when the illegals came. Kids working is a good thing, but hard as hell for them to get jobs nowadays.

It's the law and a law that our spineless government refuses to enforce.
I agree. They sneaked into America and thus broke our laws. Isn't that criminal? I live in the south where illegals cause more than their share of crime, DUIs, and other crimes. Sure, maybe some of them are decent people who want to get ahead...like my Dad did...but he came to America LEGALLY and became a citizen.

I have a cousin who picks strawberries in Michigan to get some change. She said basically anyone is welcomed to come and pick. They go to the weighing station, no strawberries are weighed if they are harmed in anyway, then they get money for how much they picked.

Cant find jobs like this, could'nt even find a fast food job in AZ, my son and many of his friends found that out the hard way. Same in Oregon and Washington unless it is a very small town. I just saw teenagers working at Mcdonalds for the first time in years.

Pretty hard to believe considering I see teenagers all the time here in my town and surrounding towns even though we have very large illegal populations.
