The white guy won't fit in because they can't speak spanish so they don't get hired.
For every 50 year old gringo willing to work hard there are another 10,000 that would rather stand at an intersection holding a sign claiming they need work when all they want is easy money.
I don't think anyone would claim there are no hard working Americans for hard labor jobs but there are 1000 jobs out there to fill for every hard working American. The other 999 Americans who could use that job don't want it.
