I'm sure most of us have been made aware of the recent debate over new anti-immigration legislation going through congress. The theory goes that illegal immigrants are depriving Americans from work within our own boarders. These Americans claim they are deprived from work because illegal immigrants are willing to work at or below minimum wage, while Americans aren’t.
Well….why not? If Americans workers are unwilling to work at what is considered to be current market prices, SHOULDN’T they be out of work? Keep in mind, not all illegal immigrants are working at below minimum wage levels. Some of them happily obey the labor laws concerning their employment, well, most of them, INCLUDING paying social security and other standard taxes.
