Under Minimum Wage Jobs

During the 1950's Mexican Braceros were Mexicans that couldn't get a job in their country seeking fortune in The United States to support their family. When the Mexican Braceros came to the US they only got low rate jobs with high manual labor with low pay. The Braceros took away low rate jobs for some of the teenagers that wanted a starting job or to make a small amount of money for cheap yard work.
