    The Law actually states that a minimum wage is paid to workers.
    Now while I can and probably do agree with your sentiments regarding Illegal Immigrants working Illegally in the US, I challenge you to find anywhere in the law regarding minimum wage any mention of Illegal workers.

    I feel sorry for you feeling you have to intermix two totally separate themes just to get your point across!

    Workers who legally have to swear they are here LEGALLY.

    Read any labor contract. They ask the question: Are you here legally or are you a US Citizen.

    It really is pathetic that you are trying to spin this.
    Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

    There is nothing in the minimum wage law about Chinese workers, either.

    Absolutely nothing EXCEPT the Federal Authorities refusal to adhere to Federal law.

    You have a vote.

    USE IT.

    The solution is to deport illegals, and also throw employers who use them, in jail. Meanwhile, people need to quit sticking up for employers who break the law. They are just as much to blame as the illegals themselves. The illegals would not even be here if it wasn't for them.

    What good does voting do when the federal government only enforces the rules of law that they want to enforce?

    Hrrm...
    It probably depends how long they've been working and where they're from. From most people I know that have worked with them they're great.
