BS! Americans have been convinced that we don't do those jobs. Unions demand that people have to get paid huge wages for unskilled jobs. Illegals will do the jobs off the union clock. There is no work that is dishonorable as long as it is honest, legal, and you do it to the best of your ability. I use to deliver baby pigs. I stood behind a sow, delivered pigs, cleaned up a 5 lb bucket of after birth, and gave about 500 shots a month. I went back to school and became a teacher. I have done that 'unsavory' work. I honestly earned my pay and did a damn good job. It was far more honorable than collecting a gov't check. We have to get over our arrogance and find the honor of working instead of wanting to be a brain surgeon even though someone couldn't stay in school long enough to graduate middle school at 18.

It's a convenient deflection used by people who approve of the slavery-like conditions under which illegals work - no OSHA compliance, no workman's comp, no minimum wage, no benefits of any kind, illegal work hours, child labor. Rather than just admit they approve of the "little people" doing that work in sub-human conditions so they can pay less for their corn-infused processed food, they tell this lie about nobody else doing the work. They think it makes them look like they are actually compassionate instead of heartless and greedy. Of course, it falls apart as soon as you point out all the people who do those same jobs in regions of the country with lower populations of illegals - aka legal citizens working for minimum wage.

The way our system is set up, I think it's more true in certain industries and areas than in others. Unemployment pays more than some of these jobs, why would someone be willing to get off UE to take a lesser wage? Not to mention, they likely won't be paid under the table and that money will be taxed (yes, I realize that some II use fake SS #'s to work - which in some cases can end up being identity theft which is yet another law they are breaking). If unemployment extensions were to end I think you would see many Americans doing those jobs that people say we won't do.
Oh, and about the diseases, I think that poster's comments were about things that many Americans are normally vaxed for. Problem is, you have a growing anti-vax group and these things could impact them greatly.
