... how do you explain this article?
Americans don't seem to WANT these jobs, so really, what's the issue? And why on earth do people complain about not being able to work, yet apparently feel they're "above" this kind of work?

We are now in a global economy. What can be produced cheaper elsewhere, WILL BE produced cheaper elsewhere. If farm laborers (no matter status) made 20 dollars/hr, food prices would rise substantially and many US farmers would likely go out of business because people here would refuse to (or maybe would be unable) to pay the higher costs for items. More produce would be grown and harvested outside the USA- good bye jobs. Our workforce is bleeding because we can produce nothing CHEAPER and of better quality than other places. Americans demand the higher salary and in the process force the hand of business to push off shore, with the government's blessing. Immigrants will work for less because they live lifestyles that can accommodate a lower income- For example, living multi-generations in 1 small home as opposed to every family of four living in a McMansion-
BOTTOM LINE?- it's all about the $$$$$$.
