Another Myth Busted

Hmm. Illegal aliens do the work American citizens won't do. We all know that, right? We're told that every time the subject comes up. Our economy would simply collapse if those jobs went unfilled, and they would go unfilled because we simply refuse to do them.

Yeah, right. Tell that to the folks in Greely CO who are lining up to fill the openings recently created when immigration agents raided the Swift & Co.meat-processing plant there.
GREELEY - The line of applicants hoping to fill jobs vacated by undocumented workers taken away by immigration agents at the Swift & Co. meat-processing plant earlier this week was out the door Thursday.

Among them was Derrick Stegall, who carefully filled out paperwork he hoped would get him an interview and eventually land him a job as a slaughterer. Two of his friends had been taken away by Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents and he felt compelled to fill their rubber boots.
Americans will work. Most will anyway. Many will even do really dirty jobs and actually enjoy it. Just ask Mike Rowe. He knows.
