They actually make a heck of a lot more than $2.00 an hour, at least here in Florida, when they are picking fruit.
It's all piece work, and some of them make $700 - $800 a week, sometimes more. It is hard work
and they deserve what they get for it. I used
to work in the groves, and just fooling around tried to keep up with one of the Mexican pickers, there was no contest.
might make $2.00 an hour picking fruit, but they make a heck of a lot more than that.
They just need to have taxes taken out of there paychecks, that's the only problem I have with the illegal
Mexican immigrants. Most all the
Mexicans I've ever met, in the groves and working elsewhere, are
hard workers and work hard at any job they have.
I don't really have a problem with the US giving the illegal immigrants that are living in the US right now a chance to become citizens (without any
penalties for entering the country illegally) due to my
experiences working around them.
, the US - Mexican border needs to be secure if this happens so there isn't a stampede of Mexicans illegally crossing the border to take
advantage of it.
country just has open borders so that people can enter there country and leave without having to check in with the border patrol or
