Another example of bleeding heart liberals who helped to wreck my USA.
Mexico will continue to be a decadent feudal serfdom until we here in the USA stop acting as a steam valve for their atrocious self-inflicted class pressures.
Thank you to the Voice for your article about men and women who are working hard to learn English and support their families....and who gave back to their community in their spare time!
In 2008 our workers...
- held 2 blood drives for Stanford Blood Center
- cleaned up the Sr Center garden and a public school garden
- painted stripes at the St. Joseph Church parking lot
- set up for the Los Altos July 4 event in Shoup Park
- assembled 70 new desks for Huff School
- 30 day workers were trained by the Red Cross in CPR and First Aid
Day Worker Center of Mountain View
U.S. Citizens could have done these tasks. I'm sure your workers were paid.
We'd do better by supporting Veterans of our own Armed Forces with jobs and support.
Good point!!! We need to take care of our own first, not let the church dictate the rules of these sheep.
How is it legal to employ undocumented Aliens who do not have Social Security cards? Who pays for these "skilled" workers if they are injured on the job? Who pays unemployment benefits for the Citizens put out of work because he or she was undercut by "day workers."
Let me remind you who pays: it is the documented workers or Citizens (e.g., tax payers) of this country who have to incur these costs. This is, of course, in addition to the enormous amount Citizens are already paying for health care, schooling, housing and the criminal justice system for undocumented aliens and their families. When will America say enough? We can't continue to afford all this "cheap" labor.
It should be Immigration Officers making contact with the workers on El Camino and providing them a free ride back to the border. Hiring undocumented criminals (yes,ALL illegal immigrants are criminals and should be treated as such) is foolish (not to mention illegal) and I am distressed that our police department would be involved in supporting such a venture.
I believe the church with thier bleeding heart liberals are the main cause behind this problem. They just want to increase there numbers
without regard to the rest of us. How much $ is spent on a work center to harbor criminals while US Vets are homeless in the streets.
Please allow the proliferation of affordable labor. With skilled workers so readily available my family and I are able to enjoy a comfortable lifestyle in the Silicon Valley. If I had to hire Americans it would easily cost two to three times what I can hire day laborers for. And I don't have to pay all the state and federal taxes. But don't think my workers aren't getting paid well, some are making ten times more than what they used to earn. My workers have money to support their families here and are able to send money to their remaining families back home. My customers are getting more for less. This is a win-win-win situation for my workers, customers and me.
Don't miss out on the discussion!
