Are you serious illegal aliens? Is Mexico the only place that illegal immigrants come from? You don't look much Native American to me Rickie. You seem to be a very knowledgeable and professional guy when it comes to cleaning but you really blew it on this one. Wow some people can be very ignorant.
Do any of the guys on this video look Mexican?
I'm tired for selling period, been a car salesmen for over 10 years! I just want to go and clean.
I live in Southern CA and trust me I know how many illegals there is but to say that they all come from Mexico is just not right. There are illegal immigrants from all over the world but for some reason everyone focuses on the ones from Mexico. I also know about losing market share to low ballers but instead of blaming people I strive to provide my customers the best service possible and that seems to work. All of my desirable customers have stayed with me regardless of what others charge. Also as far as people who employ, helps or anything to illegals we have no control of because in that case all of our vegetation and food wouldn't make it to the supermarkets because citizens are not willing to work so hard for low wages and immigrants don't have a choice. Even Lou Dobbs the biggest critic of illegals employs them. Anyways I don't want to turn this into a debate, I guess we are all entitled to have the freedom of having our own opinions and thinking the way we want thanks to our troops who put everything on the line so that we can live a good life.Well you haven't seen how many illegals are here in Florida, Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, and Mississippi. As far as my Native American Heritage I don't have any idea what illegal immigrants have to do with that. My late wife was American Mexican; ignorance isn't my short fall; it is losing great share of my market to someone that employs, helps employers of illegals, and buys from illegals or their employers. I lived in Mexico for 2 years and commuted back and forth from Tequana, Rosarita, and Ensanada. And no those guys aren't Mexican Illegals.
I have a good friend who is about my Dad's age who has owned and operated a small but high quality painting business for 2 decades. He's smart, college educated, and has worked in other fields besides painting. If anyone should be successful, it's this guy.
He is so frustrated because, much like our field, anyone with half a brain (or less) can start a painting business. As you know insurance for painters is very expensive since they deal with ladders and usually have employees. Well, the illegal immigrants are killing his business because they don't pay for insurance, and they don't pay taxes, so they have zero operating costs. After material it's free money.
He did an estimate for $650 for a lady. He said her jaw hit the floor. She had another estimate for FIFTY STINKIN' BUCKS if she bought the paint. He said "If you think my skills are worth $50 then you've wasted my time."
I was behind an obvious immigrant at the bank last Friday, and the teller was peeling off hundreds onto the counter for him like a printing press. I counted 30, but she was so fast I could be a little off. He literally danced his way into the parking lot with two fists full of cash and started distributing it to about 6 other dudes waiting in their broke down rusted out vans. And I wrote in my notebook, "tax free, insurance free".
These are some of the examples of how illegal imigration is harming the economy. Past tense it has destroyed it.
When millions are willing to work for less or entirely off the books it lowers the oportunities and wages for the real citizens of America.
You can really see this in construction trades, cement work, roofing, landscaping, framing ect...
I wonder what would happen if the unions and goverment workers had to accept lower wages or be pushed out of their jobs and be replaced by illigal aliens.
It's ironic that these people that are so for it with their guaranteed jobs and guaranteed wage increases are the loudest to shout about the rights of illegal aliens.
While they are shutting out illegals from entering their professoins.
Where is their openess ?
Past tense it has destroyed it
A quick buzz over the thread will help you see how it led here, rather logically I'd say. Was it ever really that interesting anyway?
