for the most part. Here's the main statements I agree with:
... what really bothers me about this controversy. It's a sad state of affairs when people who were born in this, the freest and most prosperous country on Earth -- instantly becoming U.S. citizens, no less -- with a free education and every other opportunity to improve their lives find themselves afraid to compete with a group of people who don't have legal status, often can't speak English, and usually have no more than a 6th-grade education.
My fellow Americans, stop your trembling. Show some dignity. If you don't like competing with illegal immigrants, try making better choices. Stop feeling sorry for yourself. Turn off those TV shows that constantly bash globalization and immigration.
Go back to school. Get more training. Move out of the comfort zone of your hometown to take a job in another state, if necessary. Take responsibility for your own life.

Answered at 1:52 PM on Mar. 13, 2009 by: While I agree to a point. I have seen my husband lose bid after bid because an illegal immigrant was willing to do the work for pennies on a dollar. His dignity wouldnt allow him to work for slave wages as it would not provide for his family. Luckily though their work was crappy most of the time and the clients usually ended up calling him to do it right. We all know you charge more to fix someone elses mess ups. But it really made him hook up with another company as a subcontractor who, like he, refuses to hire illegals. We have that same problem in the remodeling / flooring industry here! 100% agree! We also have on our business cards to support and hire only American owned!
