    You all made good points, but remember this: There is already a separate "illegal" wage being paid to separated members of society--undocumented immigrants.

    It may not be the most just solution, but it already works. If I'm not mistaken, the Dream Act has a separate wage minimum for immigrants...please correct me if I'm wrong.

    It's just a thought, and your responses are just as thoughtful. But something has to give.

      undocumented immigrants lower than the minimum wage is just as against the law as paying anyone ELSE below the minimum wage.

      The solution to the shit pay given to undocumented workers is, of course, to PAY THEM THE FUCKING LEGAL MINIMUM WAGE, not to lower the minimum wage for everybody else.
