  •  Nit, Americans Have Always Wanted to Do All Jobs. (6+ / 0-)

    I guess I'll have to get out my photo diary of white along with some Black Americans in my town digging ditches, doing framing and roofing, landscaping and paving work that they "don't want to do" in other parts of the country.

    It's not tough jobs Americans don't want, it's slave wages for tough jobs.

    •  Relevance???? (0+ / 0-)

      I don't understand the relevance of your comment to this post. My great-grand parents were farmers --- and my relatives and I have worked in the aforementioned jobs that you have listed. So what exactly was your point?

      It's been mentioned uncounted times, by many other people, that farm jobs are considered to be "jobs that Americans don't want to do". I was only referencing that opinion, not declaring unequivocally that the statement was true or not. Farm jobs are hard work (fact) and low-paying (fact) and many immigrants do this work (fact) and many of them are abused (fact) and so I'll also assume that many Americans most likely would prefer not to do this type of work (not if they had other options).

      So therefore, these farm jobs might be considered as  "jobs that Americans don't want to do".

      If people won't go protest in the streets, then they'll end up sleeping on them instead.
