Am I being just a bit sensitive about this?
Yeah thats nice.. and my husband who can speak both was turned down for a job there. My husband lost his job and has to work 2 jobs and does not have health insurance.. even working at walmart pays hire wages than most jobs in the area. Yet my kid tried to ask a lady at McDonald's a question the other day and she gave the same answer..

i would go to walmart management and tell them what that person did. walmart had been sued by illegal immigrant groups, as well as the government, and would not voluntarily put themselves in the position to hire more illegal immigrants:
The chief of the Homeland Security Department's largest investigative arm on Friday called on corporations to come clean if they employ illegal immigrants, or face civil or criminal penalties. Assistant Secretary Michael Garcia announced that the Immigration and Customs Enforcement bureau had reached the largest civil settlement ever of a case involving alleged hiring of illegal immigrants. Under the settlement, Wal-Mart Stores, Inc., agreed to pay the government $11 million and implement an unprecedented compliance and training program, including a commitment never to employ illegal aliens."This is a milestone for corporate responsibility and it sends a strong precedent that we look to other companies to follow," Garcia said.

Many of the people I've hired are virtually illiterate, with very poor work ethics, no motivation, no pride, some will spend most of the time either complaining or smoking, the few good ones, realize that they do most of the work for the same pay and become rebelious, I've hired, however, a few hispanics with excellent results.
These results, were they on your part or the employees part?

We have no problem filling the jobs in my area. Perhaps we need to prosecute any and ALL employers of illegals. We should also prosecute landlords and anyone else providing shelter to illegals. That would include those churches that make themselves a sanctuary site.
Are you in or near Hazleton?

No we didn't hire illegals, hispanics, or any other immigrants. I can't say all dairy farms or all small dairy farms don't but I will say that most do not use illegal workers.
The fact that many illegals are good workers is entirely irrelevant. They are illegal and have no right to work here, live here or benefit from our society. The fact that some scumbags do like to hire them is only proof of one thing.

That those employers are in fact scum bags who need to spend some time in prison.
It's the Corperate Farms that hire illegals. Small and Med, farms like ours delt directly with those we bought supplies from and sold our milk to. No middleman.(gov)
If we needed help we had neighbors who were happy to help.
