Folks just don't seem to get it. If there were no jobs for illegal immigrants they would not come. My wife and I have run a small service oriented business near Savannah for last decade and right about now I'd hold a job fair in Mexico City.
Try to hire and retain folks who lacked the drive to finish high school or get any kind of special training for a career. Every single one of them think they should earn no less than $20 an hour and only work when its convenient and only if they are allow to carry and use their cell phones full time.
Until my wife and I can take $20 an hour out of our own business, ain't no way I'm paying somebody else that.
Its sad .. but home grown youth today have a weird sense of entitlement. House, car, baby and flat screen due the day they graduate .. if they graduate .. from high school.
Until that changes, there will always be work for millions of illegal immigrants who are willing to work hard, live 15 to an apartment, drive cars that nobody else would buy and send their pay checks home.
Illegal immigrants are like anything else illegal. As long as people need or want them they will be here. You'll never stop illegal drug trade until you stop illegal drug use. You'll never stop illegal workers until employers can hire legal ones that actually work.
OMG, finally figured it out. Andy is one of a million moles Iran has planted in US in effort to take over this bastion of Zionist wealth one Loafer at a time. And what better way than to infiltrate the Loafer rag, Creative Loafing. Wait, I missed my morning drugs. I'll get back to you on this one.
It would seem to me that it always works better to allow folks to fully express (expose) themselves than to edit out the distasteful comments. Nothing makes a bigot madder than folks who take the high road with free speech.
Hey, I worked my way through Ga State with no scholorships or other help. Took 7 years but I got there. My back is a mess, too ... so I lost 40 pounds and the pain mostly went away. Life's tough. Not fair either. But in most cases, our ills are of our own making. Choices people. Make better choices.
