Yet still, illegals will work harder for much less and I don't think I ever see them cry about their earnings. Not defending them... But if they weren't being shipped in to vote dem, I would gladly replace every single libtard with them.

Suckitreddit 20 points ago +20 / -0

Yes they hustle. Some do not. In California, they get Medicaid and services.

Some may pay taxes on some earnings...

But they will likely get a refund if they do.

My health insurance last year was $4000 a month. A MONTH.

Couldn’t afford it for the whole family.

RedditIs4Retards 7 points ago +7 / -0

I respect their hustle, but coming from a family of immigrants, unless they put back in as much as I do tax wise etc... They can stay home. My family is Romanian and like 90% of Romanians vote Red. That said, if they're gonna take advantage and be leeches, they can fuck off along with Mexicans. Especially if they vote Globalists

2
Suckitreddit 2 points ago +2 / -0

Agreed. I am all for hard workers. I hate leeches.

I also hate lazy babies, and I’ve met a lot of native born teenagers who are not hungry enough and just phone it in at their job.

I think Too much easy credit for high school and college students have made it hard to find hard workers.

They think they deserve $25 or $30 an hour for zero skills.

Eastern Europeans who have made it to the US get it...they’ve seen the ending of the movie and it ain’t pretty.

That’s why they don’t teach history here anymore, can’t have the sheep getting the game.

Suckitreddit 2 points ago +2 / -0

Based in California and 2 adults, 3 kids. Technically it was a mere $3873.

We had to spin off the kids and pay for their own plan separately. Two adults is still $2200/ month

Obamacare really destroyed the insurance market. Paul Ryan and the Rep. didnt fix it when they could’ve. No will or wanted it too.

Republicans are just socialists driving the speed limit. (Stolen from some meme here)

It helps get them to the goal of single payer. It’s time to burn that system down too.

The federal government, with Medicare and Medicaid, is just too big of a payed and too powerful. They set the rules for all.

2
Correndo 2 points ago +2 / -0

This is just from experience, but when guest workers hustle, they do their work half-ass. Sometimes the lead starts to expect everyone to work at their pace, and gets frustrated with the workers actually doing a thorough job.

Furthermore, some of these nationalities are statistically very poor assimilators. Get enough Mexican, Micronesian, and especially non-Western nationals on a crew/shift, then you'll suddenly have a huge problem with internal communication, because they'll start passing work information via their original languages instead of english. My old company went to absolute shit because of this. Once a few foreign nationals from Micronesia got into lead positions, it was over, and no one wanted to fire the ones that were garbage workers because they'd all team up and call HR or whatever racist.

1
Suckitreddit 1 point ago +1 / -0

People sure learn how to operate and game the system quick don’t they?

It seems toxic to admit that immigrants should assimilate, learn the language and customs of a new country. This is the largest problem when the flow of immigrants from the same places...there is no need to assimilate. No need to learn the language or customs. You are insulated in a bubble of your old home. I think it takes a generation or two to assimilate in general.

The left says America is a horrible, cruel, racist country, but boy, we sure don’t act like it.

It’s interesting that other regions of the world have their own “Mexico”. It sounds like you are either in AUS, NZ or HK? Singapore?

2
Correndo 2 points ago +2 / -0

Nope. I'm 100% American. The Pacific Northwest has a large Pacific Islander population; a lot of Micronesians and Macronesians. They're usually very nice people, and the American-born ones are usually completely assimilated (while keeping family languages and some traditions), but the actual immigrants - legal and illegal - don't assimilate that well.

Not only that, but they appear to work harder, but they really half-ass their work to appear better at their jobs.

(Edit: I mean they'll work rapidly at the expense of thoroughness and rewl efficiency. Plus, just wait until the supervisor isn't around.)

Also, two middle fingers up to employers who say that shit. They're greedy motherfucks rewarding criminal behaviors over supporting their own countrymen. The "work harder and complain less" excuse is pathetic.

We all love capitalism, but people need to stop making excuses for obvious greed. Hire an illegal or foreign national over an American with the same skills? Then you should be heavily penalized in some meaningful, or thrown in fucking jail IMO.

There are also a lot of shitty Mexicans who work 4 manager jobs at Popeyes, McDonald's, Burger King, and Taco Bell so they can neglect their children. All the mean while stealing from taxpayers by applying for benefits they're not eligible for, and then failing to report their income.

We're referring to two different groups.

Valid point. We should not accept illegal aliens no matter the reason. On a personal level, some are good and some are bad, but they should be here LEGALLY.

lonestarnuts 2 points ago +2 / -0

once upon a time the illegals coming across the border in Texas would get accept offers from ranchers to do basic work like build fences etc. Now they decline the work and just want to make it to the cities so they can reap the rewards of welfare and social services without having to do anything. I would still rather Americans be the ones doing the work, but I have much less objection to someone coming here who is willing and able to work hard and not asking for handouts.

2
RedditIs4Retards 2 points ago +2 / -0

My dad ran from communist Romania in 1987. Unable to speak a lick of English, he did not take handouts. He worked his ass off and earned the respect of people he couldn't even make conversation with, quickly becoming a most valued employee, and always spoke to us about how great America is compared to Romania growing up. He came from a communist country so he knew not to trust the media.

Went from zero English speaking ability and absolutely broke to "owning" (property taxes are an absolute theft) a paid off 5000sq ft home on 2 acres in King county by 50 WHILE RAISING 11 CHILDREN.

And these lazy mother fuckers keep telling me I don't know about oppression, black people have it so bad blah blah blah. Piece of shit, my dad was nearly tortured to death JUST FOR TRYING TO ESCAPE THE COUNTRY.

If they stay working at Walmart, that’s fine but they should work their way up the ladder.

My husband's ex started as a salesgirl at Hill's, switched to Walmart, and eventually ended up as a Walmart District Manager. You CAN stay at the bottom of the ladder, some professions don't even have ladders, but the magic of America is there are always choices if you are willing to make the effort.

Years ago I worked with a guy from Mexico (he had a forged green card like many). anyway, guy worked his butt off and sent much of his money home to his wife and the kids that were still there, building his house. Every now and then a big storm would mess up his house, but he kept plugging away at this dream. Meanwhile his home country are literally falling apart. So when I knew this guy he had been here nearly 20 years, still barely spoke English, and was basically in a 20 year old rut of what he imagined he would do after coming here to work. I honestly think he just had no other concept and wasn't capable of anything beyond that.

I agree that its a system that isn't working.

jubyeonin 9 points ago +9 / -0

A huge part of the problem comes from HR. They hire the worst people to the top positions and keep the best from advancing. Retail COULD BE a career if you start pushing carts, become a cashier, become a supervisor, become an assistant manager, and become a manager. It's just not happening the right way now. Now the Mexican girl that barely graduated high school gets a supervisor job as her first job and she's a manager in two years while the American is stuck stocking shelves for a decade.

4
ItsOkayToBeWight 4 points ago +4 / -0

That's not a realistic goal. Those jobs are designed to be as soul crushing as possible to destroy you before you make it to that level, which is why there's so much churn. And naturally that's why the managers suck because they're not human beings. Companies don't value loyal employees either, so it's silly to be loyal to them.

1
hilboggins 1 point ago +1 / -0

Those retail jobs are a lot more about knowing people to get in vs anything else.

They receive so many applicants, they're not going to shift through the thousands of resumes to find the 'perfect' one. Whoever gets to show up first and seems qualified enough will get it.

Even if you manage it, there's a massive hurdle of getting from assistant manager to a general manager where you really make the big bucks for yourself.

Yea, I'd love to believe you....

but when Trump was fixing International Tarriffs and bringing jobs back to America,

And don't forget - shipping a product across the ocean isn't free! It costs money and time - and who pays for it AGAIN? The AMERICAN TAXPAYERS.

And all for what? For cheaper Slave Labour that breaks in 5 seconds when an American Quality product would last YEARS?

It's all a SHAM~

How many factories, jobs left this nation since the Phony Election Coup? And you wanna blame the American People and not.......the frauds~

Oh, and don't forget that open fuckin' border pouring in illegals 24/7 since the Phony Election. Jobs sent away, and illegal competition driving you down.

It's fucked. And not...the American People's fault~

This. $15/hr in today’s world is worth less than $7.25/hr 50 years ago. Whether the next number is $18/hr or $25/hr, nothing positive will ever come of it. This isn’t a case of entitlement gone sour as Boomers on our side would like to think. They need to acknowledge that the cost of living has skyrocketed in every respect because of countless regulations, and wild government spending thanks to The Fed and the politicians they failed to hold responsible. The economic conditions of the last few decades are what primed the minds of younger generations to so readily except radical ideologies like communism.

Bidenflation is real!

NE Shithole city: $16 an hour = $480/week at 30 hours (they'll never let you work a full time schedule!) and then you're paying $1000 to rent a room in someone else's apartment. Half your wages gone.

Red state small town: $8 an hour = $240/week at 30 hours. Paying $300 a month to rent a room. Coming out way ahead.

If your goal in life is to work a simple job and rent a room somewhere, ok. But what it should do is light a fire under you so you work your way up, then leave that starter job for the next young/inexperienced person to start and grow from there.

End the minimum wage.

This is a meme and you don't understand how bad inflation is and how low wages are. Getting rid of minimum wage van only work if we, at a minimum, deport the illegal immigrants driving down wages.

That's a very hard redpill to swallow for a lot of people, even here. Women in the workforce cheapens the labor of men and results in children growing up spending a lot less time with their parents. Sad!

My local Sam's club starts at $18/hr. Trust me, the utter retards that work there are not worth that much.

I once worked at Walmart for $2.35/hr. And I was happy to get the job.

I was low man on an inground pool crew at 16ish. Digging holes and wheelbarrowing concrete around all day for $2.35/hr. It was tits. Had a nice tan, car, gf, and a bit left over for beer and weed. Everything a 17yo needs.

JeremiahKassin 3 points ago +3 / -0

If that was in the 60s, you were making the equivalent of 18/hr today.

SpaFixr 1 point ago +1 / -0

That would’ve been like 79-80. It went up to $3.25 or something junior and Senior year summers. BIG BUCKS!

JeremiahKassin 1 point ago +1 / -0

Okay. That's still around $12-13 an hour in today's money. It'll be equivalent with $15 by the end of the year.

In 1960, $2 an hour was about $18 an hour in todays money.

I started off as a cook/dining room host at a retirement home. Then became an assistant foodservice manager at another retirement home. I then became an assistant manager at a hotel, then the GM at the same hotel. Now I'm a Foodservice Director at a private Christian school.

Worked some fast food as well.

Then in 12 months the Hospital begs Faye to return to work and Faye hold out for $100.00 per hour since most of the RNs have died or fallen severely ill from the clot shot. Winning.

Well, you can start out making that much, if you're willing to do the dirty and hard jobs others aren't. There's a steel mill near where I live. They'll hire anyone so long as they're 18. Not even sure if they care if you graduated from highschool or not. They're always hiring and start at around $23/hr. Most people aren't willing to do that kind of work though. Those that are, profit.

Gnometard 2 points ago +2 / -0

It's only possible if businesses aren't being destroyed.

I worked my ass off under Obama to the point that nobody would hire me because I was over qualified. Really fucking hard to afford a 3 day road trip for one interview when that's the case. It took Trump getting in office for businesses to be willing to spend to hire. I flew around the country interviewing, for free, from December 16 to beginning of February.

We gotta judge the country as it is, not as it should be

We're in a communist revolution, currently in a weird crony capitalism. Raises at based on arbitrary metrics, instead of doing your job. A "good" raise is one that meets Inflation, you'll never get one that increases your spending power.

We need a million more people like Faye in the world, we need to get rid of all the communists and those enabling the oligarchy we have now (they're not the communists)

glasses2020 2 points ago +2 / -0

No. Inflation is insane. I was making 17 an hour in 2015 and could barely afford to live. Maybe this is true in butt fuck Egypt but in any metropolitan area you won’t survive on less than 15. I’m not saying there should be a minimum wage but most businesses have been paying well over 15 an hour entry level for quite some time.

1
JeremiahKassin 1 point ago +1 / -0

$15 an hour today is $7.25 an hour fifteen years ago. Some people just don't get inflation. The really sad thing is if they did, they'd be more pissed of than anyone, because they'd realize they haven't had a real raise in thirty years.

Disagree. With the rate of inflation minimum wage has no choice but to go up. Groceries and gas are going up. We can't keep minimum wage at 1970s prices.
