    I can vouch for this data. I went into two factories recently and in both every worker/laborer was Mexican. The sad thing is that most US natives would rather get food-stamps than work for a paycheck.

    I'm supposed to believe my lying eyes? No joke. Every worker I saw was Mexican. The areas were "brown fields" with one being Trenton, so there was a large pool of unemployed. I don't know what Chris Christie is supposed to do with lazy stupid people, and lots of abandoned factories.

    What does "Every worker I saw was Mexican" have to do with your ridiculous assumption about natives being lazy?

    Are some or all of the Mexicans working there "natives" and have you ever heard of greedy employers breaking the law hiring illegals? Did you interview all the "Mexicans"?

    Pass the Schumer/Lindsay Graham Bill for a good work/ID ss card, dupes. Pub refusal of same has done this. All their posturing is BS for the duh duh dupes.

    You a-holes only care in a Pub recession, otherwise you're all for cheap labor...morons.

    This would explain why, at least in my personal experience, wages seem to be comparable to or lower than they were a decade ago.

    Same thing happened back when I was a contractor and suddenly every Mexican with a pickup full of "no hablaing" cousins and a hammer started cutting the bottom out of remodels and home improvement jobs.
