f: I see they're still promoting this B S, Remember all those workplace raids and the subsequent hiring of citizens? The media is so full of it "Agriculture has many other instances of employers' switching to immigrant workers (legal and illegal) to increase their profits. For example, Hispanic migrants have displaced native black workers in the Georgia peach industry,6 and migrants have replaced natives and previous immigrants in the cucumber and apple industries in Michigan.7 The melon industry slashed its mechanized packing houses in favor of manual packing in the field, eliminating unionized crews of mostly native workers and assigning their work to lower paid Mexican field crews.8 In the furniture industry, competition from immigrant-laden plants in Southern California closed all the unionized plants in the San Francisco area and removed natives from the workforce in favor of underpaid aliens.9 Unions fall before the weight of imported labor. In the Mission Foods tortilla factory strike, management lowered wages by 40 percent, and when the native labor went on strike, the Mexican managers intentionally brought in newly immigrated strikebreakers to replaced them. Some of the natives returned to work at the reduced wages but most left.10 In the last 30 years, the meatpacking industry has completely reorganized around the use of immigrant rather than native labor. IBP, the nation's leading meatpacking company, now recruits workers from Mexico and directly along the border. As a result, the proportion of the labor force protected by union contracts and the share of natives in meat processing has dropped dramatically.11 After a 2007 raid on the Smithfied plant in Tar Heel, North Carolina, unskilled natives soon filled vacancies left by illegal immigrants, a shift that contributed to workers’ successful unionization the following year. 12 Similar phenomena have swept over the hotel industry as well, with immigrant workers displacing native black workers en masse.13 In Los Angeles, unionized black janitors had been earning $12 an hour, with benefits. But with the advent of subcontractors who compose roaming crews of Mexican and El Salvadoran laborers, the pay dropped to the then minimum wage of $3.35 an hour. Within two years, the unionized crews had all been displaced by the foreign ones, and without any other skills, most of the native workforce did not find new work.14 " https://fairus.org/issue/workforce-economy/immigration-and-job-displacement
