Good reply, but I think it goes much deeper than that.
I recently had to hire 4 new people. I put an ad on craigslist and received many responses. Talked to about 25-30 people, set up interviews and the only people that showed up for their interviews were Mexican.
No surprise that 4 out of that group got the jobs.
I believe it's a cultural thing where Americans have become lazy, are repulsed by a hard day's work and are not willing to do certain jobs. Mexicans come here to work hard and provide a life for their family that is not within their grasp in Mexico.
My employees will often say that they have never seen a juedo work as hard as I do. That's not because I'm superman, it's because even though I have a good position in life I still get down and dirty in the job that's needed to be done.
We have lost that in America. We've lost the ability, in general, to roll-up our sleeves and get dirty.
