But I truly don't think that teenagers missed school to work at McDonalds.
Perhaps you didnt have to work when you were a teenager. Wasnt McDonalds, but my last year of highschool, I opened the restaraunt at 4 am worked till class started 8 am, back to the restaraunt at 11 worked thru lunch, back to school. I also worked waiting tables and any other part time job I could get while in College. Most of us have to work our way up to those good paying jobs.

I remember when I was a teenager (a decade ago), we actually had a program in school where we could leave school at noon on some days if we had a job. Most of the fast food jobs went to teenagers back then, but not now. I think it may just be that teenagers don't want to work anymore. Most of the fast food workers around here seem to be middle aged black women.

No he is saying that only "Real Americans" who are not latino/hispanic legal or illegal are not welcome in Indiana. I can understand the illegal part but I am having trouble understanding the LEGAL part. I really think he should plan on relocating to some other state than Arizona.

Define 'Hispanic'; please---------and, saying that all Latinos are actually Mestizo does not count

I can't define it for the very reasons you have posted many times. Let's just stick with those who's first language or mother tongue is Latin American Spanish (exclude European Spanish) and all forms of its dialects. And we will also include those whose native tongue are indigenous languages of the North, Central and South Americas.

Be careful there: calling a Navajo, etc. 'Hispanic' may raise their ire.

And; under US government guidelines, a White Spaniard is just as Hispanic as a dark skinned Indian from Chiapas.
