Unemployed Don’T Want To Do The Work That Illegals Do



Some of your letter writers must move into the 21st century and face reality.

People on unemployment or welfare are there because they refuse to do the work of the illegals.

Reason No. 1 — It’s hard work. No. 2 — The wage they’re paid.

And here is the kicker. People unemployed or on welfare will pay the illegals to do work they don’t want to do.

These writers should put an ad in the paper. Wanted: Field workers and people to pick fruit and see how many of the unemployed or people on welfare apply. None would be my guess.

Bottom line, the illegals do work nobody else wants to do.

That I strongly believe.

I agree with you to a point Mr. Clayton, however, if unemployment and welfare were not such easy "fallbacks", perhaps the unemployed would be a little more willing to work. Of course, most anybody would prefer to sit inside their nice warm comfy home and collect a check every week for doing nothing. What I would like to see is the distribution of those checks linked to the productivity of the recipient. You know, something like a "community service" program. There is plenty of work that needs doing in our communities that welfare and unemployment recipients could be assigned.

I grow so weary of the argument that illegals serve a need in our community, doing the work that others won't do. My contention is that if someone is hungry enough or cold enough or just desperate enough, they will do what needs to be done. And what does it say about our society that it is willing to exploit illegals to do our "dirty" work?
