Ha! Video BUSTS myth that illegals are doing jobs Americans WON’T do

How often have you heard the following defense of illegal immigration: “they’re doing the jobs Americans just won’t do!”

After all, would we really expect an American to toil out in the sun all day, picking oranges for a few bucks an hour? Well, of course not. But in absence of illegal immigration, many of these low-skilled industries ripe with illegal immigrant labor would be forced to pay higher wages to attract domestic, legal, labor. Yes – you will end up paying a few cents more for a head of lettuce, but it’s an American taxpayer picking it. Besides, when real unemployment (the U-6 unemployment rate) peaked at nearly 17.5 percent under Obama in 2009-10, laughter would be an appropriate rebuttal to the claim that there would be a job out there an American wouldn’t be willing to do at that point.

In this video, comedian Steven Crowder embarks on an amusing social experiment – in which he attempts to steal jobs from illegal immigrants by underbidding them.

Watch what happens when “Americans” undercut the daily wages the illegals are demanding.

Wouldn’t you like $50,000 a year tax-free too? Who knew Americans wouldn’t be willing to do work so lucrative?
