Skip to comments.Sick of Mexicans Taking our Jobs
Posted on 02/21/2007 5:53:58 PM PST by NellieMae
I am getting really sick of the Mexican Invasion costing so many jobs in the Southwest Virginia- East Tennessee area. My husband is a brickmason. He is the 5th generation mason in his family- our son is the 6th. Up until just a couple of years ago brickmasons had contractors ringing their phones off of the wall wanting them to do work for them. My husband had to turn down dozens of callers because he couldn't do it all. Things have sure changed . Now, a lot of contractors in this area have gotten dollar signs in their eyes and all that they can see are cheap Mexican workers. My husband has actually had a contractor (real builders that know how to actually build a house are really scarce around here anymore) pull Mexicans on the job that he was working on because he was in such a hurry to get it finished that he couldn't wait the 2 weeks that it would have taken to do the whole job. They will pull in a huge crew and wipe the job out real quick. They waste a lot of brick though (they get paid by the 1000 brick). My husband is a very good, fast mason. His speed and quality is not the issue here. Most of these workers cannot even speak English. It is really aggravating to have lived in a place your entire life and have your livlihood seriously threatened by people that are not supposed to be here in the first place. How do we get rid of this problem? Also, on another related note: It was announced today that there are hundreds of jobs being cut in ANOTHER local factory, Bristol Compressors. I was told several months ago that a construction site in Mexico was marked with a sign that read:" Future site of Bristol Compressors" Is this a coincidence or is there another company by the name of Bristol Compressors?
The Mexicans are only here to do the work your husband won't do.
Masons, carpenters, roofers, painters...all getting screwed.
Thank you George Bush.
I'm on your side but let me be the first to say.....
THEY TUHK R JAHBS!!!!
Boy, that was cheap shot!! How do you know what he will do. He usually will tackle jobs nobody else will do.
You must fill your heart with love! "Our Diversity Is Our Strength!" Life in the "Big Tent!" There is lots of "Room at the Table!"(Just not for you and yours.)
Well, just have your brickmason husband start his own brickmason firm and hire only Americans. Be part of the solution.
Uh, he was being sarcastic. That is the phrase the open borders crowd use.
I think the poster was simply being ironic about it...
Not only are they taking jobs, but a large segment is here to commit horrific crimes and live off our welfare. Illegal aliens actually get a variety of perks not available to us taxpayers.
Yes.And send money to mexico.
Uh.. it's a play on the popular phrase "They are only here to do the jobs Americans won't do."
Use paragraphs, even.
Sorry, thought that maybe I had been responded to by a liberal.
Guess what? They're going to raise your property taxes to educate their children and pay for their healthcare.
I've heard something like that before.
WAR IS PEACE, FREEDOM IS SLAVERY, IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH
This has been a public service announcement by the Ministry of Truth.
You might like the views of Duncan Hunter on that issue.
...And some mexicans will undercut his prices.No taxes, no insurance.
Go to a job site and yell "La Migra, La Migra" and watch them run. Seriously, call Immigtation or the owner.
The battle of San Jacinto took 800 men only 13 minutes.
