    I never got the complaint that immigrants steal jobs. Its not like someone can run up to with a gun and take your job away from you or force someone at gunpoint to give them a job. Somebody is willingly hiring them so I always thought if anybody is to be blamed, it should be the employers.

    Illegal immigrants do lower our wages. Does jobs people dont want is because they pay too little. Legal immigrants need and will be paid at the minimum. Legal immigrants are only ones that should be allowed.

    Then if only way all these bars are open is because they hire illegals, then they should not be open at all.

    There ought to simply be less bars with all the legal people within a given area who can possibly fill all the jobs, and then that is it. This way there are fewer bars. The fewer bars make more money, and the workers make more money.

    You should not be allowed to open bar if only way to stay open is to hire illegals.

    People are really complaining that many jobs don't pay enough for our standard of living, that there are not enough 'good' jobs. Immigration filling up shit jobs is just a symptom, the market reacting.

    When people moan about America. I have to admit years ago i was one of those people, but then i became more 'world-aware.'
    Too many people are in love with China these days and they don't realize how dangerous it is wishing China becoming the biggest kid in the playground.

    You are correct. Illegal immigrants do lower wages.

    TS says the pay is decent for his family's restaurant. But companies can generally fine low wage workers anywhere. They offer minimum wage because they can. They pay illegals under the table to get around taxes and what not.

    Just like companies, workers have an opportunity cost associated with employment. If a job doesn't seem worth it for the pay and the alternative is government housing, then people will accept government housing. It's better than working a job they hate for little money that won't get them off Section 8.

    It is. Companies will can find low wage workers anywhere and that affects the companies tone. A restaurant's or factory's management is not afraid to let employees know that they have a stack of applications a mile high. One slip up and there's the door.

    It is in Uber and Lyft's dna.

    It's called tone at the top. If management (in not so many words) let employees know that they are replaceable and cheap. Workers will feel replaceable and cheap.

    That's not true. Depending on the city Working til 4 at a bar then waking up at 9 for a day job doesn't mean he is rolling in dough.

    You answered your own question.

    How can you expect your employees to enjoy their work when you say stuff like that?

    Companies want it both ways. You want to pay workers the smallest amount required by law but you also want the workers to be happy, productive and kiss the ground you walk on for just letting them into the building.

    And this leads to employees with incentive to do just enough not to get fired.

    This approach misses the carrot, and just uses a stick.

    Makes for a toxic work environment.
