They were called up from Mexico during WWII, but then many were turned away because the men came back looking for jobs. Not to mention the job discriminiation showed towards Mexican-Americans during the Great Depression. Well, if they missed the industrial age, so does everyone else who comes here. For example, that would consists of most Asians, since most of came here betwen 65 and 85.

Not only do white guys do construction in WY, MT, ID, CO, but they are doing it in much harsher weather conditions.
Used to be construction was a job, that a high school educated person could make a good living at. Almost equal to white collar wages (better in some cases)

Depends on the type of construction as well. Lemme put it to you this way--no way in hell I'd trust some underpaid illegal to be hanging steel 150 feet up.

Oh, jeez...all you were missing in that post was, "and some of my best friends are illegals!"

Spare me the "I touched the untouchables and feel oh-so-much holier than thou for it" garbage. It ain't flyin here.

Get over yourself and quit trying to give away what isn't yours.

Think about it.

1. There's less construction opportunities in these states for latinos in response to the lower on average population levels. More population equals greater jobs.

2. These states are farther to travel than more southern border states, not to mention it's not their type of climate.

3. White guys do Construction, I'm sorry if I had said this and offended anyone, I'm very proud of those who do, but they are hardly a sizable minority in comparison to the illegal workers.

4. I know the Inland Empire is loaded with illegal Construction workers.

Thereby demonstrating you have absolutely NO CLUE as to what you're talking about. Power plants, loadouts, HEAVY construction--or do just McMansions count in your little world?

"Not their type of climate"? Bit racial, don't you think?

Hypocrite.

You questioned the integrity of my location, and now you are ridiculing my experiences as garbage with no valid evidence. I'm sorry if you are offended in anyway.

You're sorry alright. Try not to look so far down your nose next time you lecture us little folk from your perch overlooking Highland Street, won't you? Yeah, I know your neighborhood too. Pretentious pompus jackasses more about the "me me me" than anything else--fake concern and sincerity so you'd be more "accepted" at your little hug-and-kiss bar-b-ques.

**** you make me wanna puke.
