Do what we, and lots of other Americans do, grow your own. It really isn't that hard at all. There is another way though and that is to buy local and get to know your local farmers and just don't buy from any that employ illegals. Yes, it will cut down on the varieties and such that you consume but we did well long ago eating and consuming what was made in the local areas.

Companies do not want people like you because you are not a team player and I can tell you are a chronic complainer. Companies are looking for people with a "can do" attitude and you do not seem to have it. You are in need of experiencing a paradigm shift in your life, so that you can start to see things in a different way.

I spend a lot of time brainstorming with upper management and I hear through the grapevine that our company is desperate for employees that can bring in inter-departmental cross-functional synergies. Basically, employees that will bring about "win-win" situations are always going to be in high demand.

As far as "offshoring", the term is outdated, my friend! Companies are more focused than ever in creating "rightshoring" solutions, that is, finding the optimal mix of jobs in the USA and overseas with little to no disruption to the enterprise.

Like anything else; prices will spike to some degree but will then settle back down.

Frankly; if it means paying a tad more for Mexican grown produce tended by Mexicans that would be OK as well. I would much rather support SOB than, say, China------besides, being that NAFTA evidently hurt many of the small Mx farmers, maybe slightly higher prices would not be such a bad deal for all parties involved

Myself; I try to support small business as it is

That sort of arrogant condescending attitude works for a while; then it tends to blow up in the faces of the players involved.

More and more; I pay little credence to what your kind have to say.

It is your choice as to what you will buy or not, I think it irrational to complain bitterly about a problem while supporting that problem, eh?

Well, well, well, an elitist for sure,
After reviewing several other of your post its very clear you have an inherant disdain for the blue collar guy.
And why pray tell may that be?
Speaking of education, would you care to compare sheepskin.
As I did choose to advance beyond h9gh school. Again how disdainful an attitude.
What type of degree have you? Please tell me it is something more respectful than a degree in liberal social science and has progressed beyond an associates from some community college.
I am a CEO with 170 employees under my care. 22 million a year in operation cost and not a single illegal amongst them.
Also, my white, black, brown and yellow fellow employees do come in on Fridays and Mondays. They do dig ditches, scoop human crap, haul off trash, keep your water going and play nurse maid to your psychotic children.
They put out your fires, work in weather conditions that keep you at home. They DON'T complain about the heat, or the cold, or the rain, or the snow. They cut the grass, trim the trees, and a myriad of other things that an elitist, superior intellect would cringe at doing.
Geez....................

LMMFAO that is the most incoherant line of gobbledy-gok ive heard in a long time. A 50 cent vocabulary never gets anything done. What your company needs is to downsize "upper management" who sit on their rumps "brainstormiong" about how to pass their workload off onto others

And quit making assumptions about my work ethic and attitude. I am a highly productive team player with an exemplary attitude who embodies the very "can-do" mantra you speak of. You know nothing about me, put a cork in it

No yard, no balcony, no front porch. Can't grow anything in here except dust.

Are you KIDDING?? The employer is breaking the law. Why does that not make sense to you?

Also the Mexican is far less likely to call in sick on Monday and Friday, far less likely to complain about it being too hot or too cold or about working a bit of overtime. If you give the Mexican a cooler with ice water, he will work hard all day in the heat.
you are constantly slamming the american worker, yet america is the country that has been built up by american workers to the point that the mexicans want to come here to work...
