Blacks and Irish mostly, and they were legal immigrants by choice or force and there were a shitload of them.  Other legal immigrants had already moved up.  Obviously now we don't have that large influx of legal immigrants willing to do anything and we never will again.  And children of course.  Not teenagers, more like 10-year olds.  You're not going back far enough when it comes to child labor because it kinda makes Americans look bad, but a lack of child labor laws certainly helped a lot.  The lowest classes with the least rights will always do those jobs in any era.  Today those are illegal immigrants.  And it's hardly one of the top 100 problems we face. 


Dude, you're way off. In my old neighborhood, it wasn't unusual to see white teenagers mow lawns, rake leafs, shovel snow, and wash dishes. Of course, there was always the low IQ adults with no worthy skills that worked with them. I'm not ashamed to say that I washed dishes at my cousins restaurant, pumped gas, and bagged groceries.

 

How's this for killing two birds with one stone. We should seriously slash welfare benefits. These freeloaders will now have to actually work in order to survive. They will finally do what they should have been doing for the last forty years by cleaning toilets, washing dishes, and menial farm work.  In doing this, the former welfare recipients will finally gain some sort of dignity. Who knows, they may become decent parents.
