They work in low level jobs - construction, farming, horse ranches, food processing plants, cleaning bathrooms in hospitals, schools, office buildings, driving taxis, assisting elderly in nursing homes, etc. Reality check - how many WHITE U.S. Citizens would take jobs cleaning toilets, cleaning chickens, lifting heavy patients from their beds, preparing food at McDonald’s, picking fruits / cotton on farms, cleaning horses, stocking shelves at Walmart, or even working at an Amazon Distribution center. Answer: 0 - 5% of White U.S. Citizens will accept these jobs. Companies that hire these workers refuse to pay U.S. minimum wage salaries and refuse to pay for healthcare & other worker benefits. In the case of Amazon, stories have bedn published that workers are pushed to death and highly stressed because they are not allowed to have normal breaks or take 1 second longer than allowed for their designated break.
If employers do pay Social Security & Medicare taxes on behalf of these immigrants, it means that tax dollars are being paid into the system but these workers will never collect any benefits from it.
