There is a very popular myth going around stating that immigrants do the jobs that natives don't want to do. That couldn't be further from the truth. While immigration allows residents of the U.S. pay lower prices for things items as fruits and vegetables but it also causes problems in the overall evaluation of the wage market for all people to receive a decent hourly wage. The article "Preface to 'Does Illegal Immigration Harm US Citizens?"(2012), states that "The immigrants that account for the negative fiscal impact of immigration in California and the United States as a whole are primarily individual with low skill levels" (Preface to 'Does Illegal Immigration Harm US Citizens' 2012). These jobs are typically minimum wage jobs such as fast food, farm work, janitorial work, landscaping, construction and house cleaning. A particular place you would think would be the least populated by illegal immigrants is major fast food restaurants. There have been incidents where a general manager had to fire an employee because it became common knowledge that the employee was in the United States illegally under a false name and social security number which he submitted on his application. The very next day, the same immigrant came back to the restaurant and presented a new name and new social security number to the manager and was once again gainfully employed. "[Economist] George Borjas estimates that over the period 1980 to 2000 immigration contributed to a decrease in average U.S. wages of 3 percent" (Preface to 'Does Illegal Immigration Harm US Citizens 2012). Now obviously if the manufacturer doesn't have to pay as much to produce a product then the consumer doesn't have to pay as much in a retail setting. But the amount of people able to purchase that product is decreased due to not having income to pay.
