The idea that Americans won't work many jobs that immigrants will is not a myth.

The work was "too hard."
Besides which, even if we implemented everything he's saying, prices would go through the roof due to lack of labor, and entire crops would die in the process. Not only would we see a huge lack of food production and out of control prices, all but the most hearty agro companies would go out of business.
It's an unfortunate fact that until you find people to replace those workers.
I blame the labor unions. They've pussified the American worker.
