    Even when the national unemployment rate was low California's was still higher. But regardless of ethnicity in this state it all depends on your skill set. If you're unskilled this wouldn't be the place to be. Not necessarily because you'd have to complete with migrants, although that is real, but because the cost of living is high and most unskilled jobs don't support a reasonable standard of living here. Not being able to speak Spanish would be a detriment in many labor fields. This is why when you grow up in California you learn this in school.

    Unemployment is lower than it would be without the illegal immigrants and higher than it would be if there were enough immigrants.

    Because of immigration, California has many jobs that pay much more than mowing lawns.  Many of these jobs wouldn't exist without immigrants.  For example, one of our largest employers, and one of our highest paying employers, is Google, which was founded by an immigrant.

    However, some of our high paying jobs have had to be moved to other countries, because there weren't enough immigrants to keep the jobs here.  Many California residents have lost jobs that are no longer in the U.S. because there weren't enough foreigners to keep the jobs here.  I've actually lost two different jobs that were moved to other countries because my employers needed those jobs to be done in the same country as foreigners whom they couldn't bring to the U.S.

    No unemployment is not that high in California. Our unaffordable housing partially comes from having more jobs than homes. Not sure what you’re talking about when you say “slave wages” and not being hired for not being Hispanic.

    You are probably unemployable based on your merit.

    Illegal immigrant working slave wages? You watch to many movies and believe to much conservatism propaganda. These illegals  are making 1k a week mowing lawns. They are hustlers and Americans be whining because they have to push carts in extreme heat for 15 min or want to use Uber eats because they don’t want to drive to McDonald’s because it’s hot out

    There are 60,000 homeless in L.A. There are 297,000 millionaires in L.A. That means millionaires outnumber the homeless by nearly 5 to 1. Maybe you should be less worried about places where you don't live and have no idea what's actually going on.
