    20 years ago the construction industry did not have to hire illegals. Skilled Americans and apprentices had those jobs. But because of greed, they hired unskilled low wages illegals to replace Americans. When the housing market fell, the greedy construction industry got their due for hiring illegals and not Americans. I worked in the restaurant business all through college - no illegals were hired. Most of the workers were college/high school kids and hospitality professionals. The restaurants need to go back to recruiting American college and high schools kids. For south Florida there are many Americans working in the summer beach resorts in the mid Atlantic who want to come to Florida for "the season". Go get them- they will come. Think outside the box and the illegal immigration issue will not affect your business.
