I guess I could have complained to authorities and lost my job and friends, but then I would be a part of a different problem. Unemployment.

If you think they are being taken advantage of, consider the wages they would make in Mexico. As far as they are concerned, they hit the jackpot.

Not my experience in commercial construction, the illegals were making $1000 dollars a week six years ago. They were hired because you couldn't find anybody who knew how to do the work or wanted to work hard.

The american work ethic has moved south for the most part.
