It is very concerning to me that how can caucausians can say that the immigrants are taking thier jobs. I ask those 'citizens' what jobs are they taking? Are there taking doctor occupations? Are there No Engeneers because of the immigrants?You know as well as i know that all that is B.S. The only jobs that the immigrants are taking are that hard labor laws. For example picking strawberries. Common now are you going to tell me that a white person is going to take that job? Of course not but after all they say that there are no more jobs because of immigration. Lets supposse that in fact the white folks do take those so called needed jobs for , lets supposse that. Do you think that they are going to last awhile of course not . they might end up forming a union and suing the company and start to complain. They will probably get hurt in a little way and end up loading off the workers compensation. When you say that immigrants are taking jobs you don't what you are talking about..Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
