But now, with unemployment so high, more Americans are seeking jobs they previously avoided. American-born workers in Raeford say there's no excuse for the company to rely on undocumented labor.

Lamar McCoy, 25, called the changes long overdue. He said several friends and relatives have gotten jobs recently at the plant, including his brother.

“It's been good for the town, especially black minorities,” said McCoy, who worked at the plant about nine months until this summer. “There are lots of poor black men with not many opportunities…. In a small town like Raeford, there are not many jobs.”

So, who are the ones doing the jobs that Americans won't do?
