Well, I had to move twice to find a decent job in my industry. Anything can be done if you truly want it to be. Plus, they aren't all farm jobs. Many illegals from mexico work in construction. The guys who did the tile in my bathroom didn't speak a lick of English. And, I am looking out my window now at the landscapers working in my plan and they sure look Mexican to me. Landscaping and construction jobs are everywhere. My brother in law is a Journeyman electrician and they are CONSTANTLY looking for good help and they pay well. He says they tried a work program with welfare recipients and found that many of them just wouldn't show up or were lazy. But, what are you gonna do?
