Yes, fast food jobs that our American youth need. Other jobs that our American adults will do are construction, hospitality and other blue collar jobs that the illegals have taken.

Yes, we know all about the greedy employers who hired them. Please don't lump these phoney Americans into the same catagory as the majority of us Americans who are law abiding.

Notice that 90% of Chick A Fill Workers are white and speak perfect english. How do they do it? How do they find workers for a job no Americans want?

Save a buck, hire an illegal they will work for less pay. Still need to go after those who hire the illegals, crack down needs to get tougher on those who employ illegals, whatever the reasoning for doing do.

They were slower, didn't smile, were often rude..many seemed to be possessed with negative energy and they took it out on the customers.

For the last several years the vast majority of the fast food workers where I live are Hispanic. I'm not sure if they are legal or illegal, probably a mix of the two, but I can say that overall they are excellent workers. Most are quick and are very nice and pleasent to deal with..such a big improvement from the past.
How they work doesn't justify them being in this country illegally. So stop giving them so much credit.

Many of you are missing the point on why hispanics are preferred over anyone else. They have a work ethic. They show up to work, they show up on time, they work their entire shift, they dont call out, no excuses. Its easy to hire small crews of 2-3 Americans. But ask any employer whose tried to hire a large crew. The quality/quantity of applicants is pretty poor.

Even though unemployment is high, many people will still not take step down jobs. And then there is also shift work. Try finding people to work 2nd or 3rd shift.

You need to look from the point of the employer: How high can you go in payroll without having to raise your prices to a point where you cease to have customers?

We all shop at Supermarkets. We all see food prices skyrocketing. In what direction do you think the fast food vendors prices are going? Every month is a balancing act.

We are getting to the point where a $20 bill barely feeds two people (maybe three).

False premise - if the workers are LEGAL they are all entitled to the SAME pay - the only way the employer's bottom line is impacted or benefitted is if they hire ILLEGALS at less than they have to pay a LEGAL worker.

I'll use the construction industry. I know of numerous roofers who pay MORE to hispanics because they show up to work, they show up on time, they work their entire shift, they dont call out, no excuses.

Look around you. Who do you see on cell phones? Who do you see hanging out in front of stores (or sometimes the back)? Americans (non-minority) in this this age group have no work ethic. Hispanics do. I'm not going to seperate legal from illegal.

You can't prove a word of what you just posted. If you think you can...do it!

Don't say "WE". Unlike you, I'm an American and I don't favor illegal migrants over fellow Americans...as you do.

Employers will say anything it takes in order to get cheap labor.
