I work with immigrants to help them gain employment. Many are scared to death about getting a job in America and are very insecure about working with their weak English skills and adjusting to American work culture. I see so many of them struggling with their English skills (which I can understand and appreciate) but still applying for jobs that require good English speaking and writing skills. The result is they have a harder time getting hired in comparison to the white native born Americans they are competing against.

Legal or Illegal Immigrants?

If they came here to work, you'd expect that many are returning home now that our unemployment rates are so high but that's not the case.

I did not ask for their papers but assume it is half and half. If someone has weak English skills and are struggling to understand American culture, they are going to face a tougher job hunt than most native born and are more likely to face higher unemployment numbers.

How do you know they are legal to work then? How do you know they have or don't have real SS#s? Are they getting paid under the table? Are they paying taxes?
