    Which just prove my point: if a significant group of people somewhere is ready to do it for less, it means you're overpaid. I bet these "legal" workers were unqualified and could easily be replaced, so $20/hour is way too much IMHO...

    actually it's the ILLEGAL ALIENS who are unqualified. That's why they work for less.

    they're expendable and the employer shells out A LOT less for health benefits.

    But its a problem in the US. I havent figured it out, it needs to be addressed.

    Again, thanks for proving my points. If an unqualified wetback can do this job, it means the job itself doesn't require anything special. That's the problem with these jobs, workers are replaceable. That's why I guess my parents pushed me to go to college, so I wouldn't just be another "warehouse rat".

    Nobody is indispensable, including you. Plus you are a fool if you think a college education is going to shield you from the corrosive effects of illegal immigration/out-sourcing and in-sourcing on our economy. Just wait until you are replaced by a cheaper, HIGHLY EDUCATED worker from the third world.

    But that's not the same thing. Although I agree with you it is an issue.

    Manny's point is that if any fool off the street can do the job, it wasn't worth paying someone $20 an hour in the first place.
