I think it's time to get a new one. I plan on hitting the sporting goods stores this afternoon. If you decide to replace yours, be sure that you don't go Walmart. Most of their goods are manufactured in foreign countries and I'm sure theirs will not render the correct readings. Sounds like the one you have was made in Mexico.

Illegals arent even on my "i give 2 s^$*s" meter. My Latino best friend just got laid off for the 2nd time in 2 years and his sister is getting walking papers as well. They are pretty high on my meter but very low on everyone else in NoVA's meters, wonder why? Oh yeah, they are U.S. citizens.

Instead, as the recession deepens, they are receding from community life. They are clinging to low-wage jobs, often working more hours for less money, and taking whatever work they can find, no matter the conditions.
This part of the article is interesting. Illegals can still find jobs in this economy and legal workers can't.

I agree with Mexican Lopez logic "without the number, you are nothing in this country". Very true.

What would I be able to do work wise if I was an ILLEGAL in Mexico and was seeking work?

They have a ID card in MEXICO.

Works both ways. Steve

Once you've been exposed for being in their country illegally and not willing to pay them for your release, the odds are you would never be heard from again.

All the more reason to severely punish their employers with possible jail time as well as seizing their assets.

Sorry but your wrong. It is possible to work "illegally" in Mexico if you know the right people and locations. I spent three yrs in Mexico City (legally) and had the chance to do some work without a ID card but refused because I was not a LEGAL resident. It's easy to blend in with the people as the city is so large. No one mistook me far being a Gringo or treated me as such even with my limited Spanish. Once I opened my mouth they new what I was and never treated me any different then they would any other Mexican citizen.

All Mexican citizens have a National ID card that they use.

As an American I have a City (Palacio) issued ID card that shows me as owning property in Mexico.

Steve
