That is part of the problem people have with immigrants working,
they work illegally for less money. So they get hired, taking jobs,
then do not pay taxes out of their wages.
But their kids still go to school, and get WIC, etc.... That tax payers pay for.
I am not in any way shape or form against immigration,
I am very very against people working here, and not putting money back into the system through taxes.
I think if you want to use our roads, schools, and other programs,
you should have to be paying taxes into those systems, period.
Regardless of who you are or where you're from.
No one is arguing that fact, but do you honestly think these farmers are going to pay minimum wage to tax paying Americans? Hell no they aint. I think some jobs no one wants these happen to be them last summer 14 deaths in California were attributed to these conditions. I don't give a s*it if your white, brown, purple, green its not humane and very unethical. I personally have been sending letters to congressman in California asking that these farm owners have accountability for cheating the system out of paying taxes by hiring illegals and on the humanitarian side for basically having slaves in this day and age. Sometimes it sickens me how its all about the politics, but never the care of a human being. Totally sickening and hypocritical.
