Wonder what the catch phrase will be THEN?
Instead of the jobs Americans won’t do. It will be the jobs Americans can’t do.

I dunno . Once I lived in Miami and a man brought a car to me to estimate for a fix. The car needed a rear axel bearing and a seal, of course with new gear oil. I priced the parts on the phone, told him 3 hours labor, and he told me I was to high.

So he went to the Cubans for a fix, and came back to tell me how cheap it was with a grin.

Well the next day he was back and wanting the same thing, but this time for both rear axel bearings. I took a peek and saw the hammer and cold chisel marks, the pouring out gear oil and told him I couldnt fix it at all since the Cubans ruined the bearing housings and the axel flanges.
That he indeed needed a whole new axel housing from a bone yard complete.

I was inexpensive but tooled up well, with the know how. The Cubans had a hammer and a chisel.

In another time and another place Rochester NY, I was set up painting a house when a hispanic guy asked if he could borrow my ladders. I loaned him one high enough to get to where he pointed on a building i could see. As i worked I kept an eye out, and after a while I needed that ladder myself.

I went over there to get it and a lady came out, and she was not hispanic. She asked if i could check on the work that she has paid 250 dollars for in cash. I ran up the ladder and saw the gutters were still full of leaves. I had no idea what she paid for. She paid and got nothing, and certainly no 250 dollars worth of anything. It was then I decided i was lucky I still had my ladder.

It was a scam. The hispanic guy placed the ladder there, went up said ok now I get my pay and left. That lady sure was mad.

By doing nothing except letting ourselves get trampled and ripped off by 12 plus million, that puts us firmly ahead of "dumb as rocks". Or, as I like to put it, "As smart as a glass of water".

are you talking about undocumented workers or the entire American workforce?

One area not widely discussed is that the PEW Center also reported the unemployment rate for illegal immigrants in the United States is estimated to be 10%, compared to the national average of 9.7 percent for unemployed ‘legal' workers. This is what got my attention: 1.1 million illegal immigrants are out of work here in America...

An average of 43.3 million people, more than an eighth of the population, will get food stamps each month in the year that began Oct. 1, according to White House estimates.
43 mil Americans.
