Illegal Immigrants Depress Wages



I am writing in response to the article, "Business owners divided on council's proposed immigration ordinance."

Geez. How easy is this ordinance? No driver's license, social security card, birth certificate and no job. It takes that just to enroll your kids in school.

Here is a novel idea, pay appropriately for the desired work.

The problem here is not jobs Americans will not do, it's wages American employers will not pay. I shoveled manure from stables at $10 an hour, but now the same job pays $6.75 an hour.

Who says illegal aliens do not depress wages and deny jobs to Americans?
