    If we get rid of the illegals and stop paying people to not work, the lettuce will be picked by those who currently collect welfare and unemployment.

    No, they won’t do it. One of the southern states, (I think it was Georgia) got a bunch of welfare recipients jobs picking carrots. Of the 30 or so who showed up, only one made it through the day.
    And it’s unfair for you to denigrate people who collect unemployment insurance. They had to have had jobs and then get downsized. (Laid off.) If they get fired or quit there are penalties up to the denial of benefits.
    I got a friend’s daughter’s boyfriend a job. A good job. The company manager went out of company policy to hire him. He lasted one day.
    “It was too hot!”, he said. The factory was not air conditioned.

    The chronically unemployed are chronically unemployed for good reason.
    Working folks may be temporarily unemployed, but it does not last long.
    .
    One time I went almost three months without a job, this was during a bad time of my life. When I got my head straight I went right back to working, the work had been available the whole time.
    .
    My attitude towards physical labor has folks paying me to do exercise, talk about a win win.
    Thinking causes stress and if I am expected to think then I demand higher pay. I did that for awhile when raising my children as a single parent.
    The stress took it’s toll and I went back to stress free manual labor.
    The family seems to be a happier place even with the less money.
    .
    As an anecdote, last week a chronically unemployed person made mention of the fact that the only reason she could not get a job was because of the immigrants.
    I refrained from pointing out that in the forty years I had known her she had never held any job for over 70 days, not ever.
    Trump appeals to folks like that.

    Nope. They don’t want those jobs.

    Make the people who vote for Trump pick vegetables and work in slaughterhouses.

    Tom: anyone living in the west around agriculture knows who does the field work, and who won’t do it. The welfare and unemployment lines have lots of Trump’s good right-white folks, while the fields are full of those immigrants working in the sun.
