Exactly, they see the cheap produce but miss the big picture.

Okay, I'm someone who went to school. Got a job. Worked on education. So you are asking me to subsidize a "legal" american and pay him more than someone else because he was born here?

Quit with the entittlement. I am not a donation service. Look to church for that bucko. If someone wants to do a job cheaper than I'm all for the cheaper one (if quality same). I'm not going to subdize a bunch of teenagers or no-talent uneducated hipsters to pick tomatoes. Thats crap.

Not only that but those who hire them just pass their social costs on to us. Any so-called savings are wiped out ten fold.

I do enjoy. Its awesome. Lets keep it up!

WTF do you call it unskilled. Unskilled = low pay

sounds fair to me. If you compete with a non-english speaking forigner for a job. . perhaps you should think about becoming skilled?

The growers have no choice, if the farm across the street is using illegal labor the only way they can remain competative is to utilize cheap illegal labor themselves.

Nice try? I'm simply telling a story I heard. Is there a reason why you feel the need to make a rude comment? So you know for a fact that all those illegals out there are worthless & have done nothing to better society? What do they need to do for you to consider them not worthless & that they have bettered society?

Not the OP but for one, I pay taxes on my income to support infrastructure and the government. Illegals use our roads, schools, libraries, hospitals, etc, etc,etc...and don't pay a dime.

Just becsue you have an education you think you're entitled to better pay? LOL

Your value as an employee is what someone is willing to pay you, whether you have an education or not.

Do you people even realize how silly you sound?
And think of the savings because we won't be spending our money to educate the children of illegals or paying for hospital births or a host of other benefits they take from our system. That 2.50/head lettuce would actually be cheaper than $1.20/head lettuce when you factor in all the things they take for free without contributing to the system.
