I live in Arkansas which has the fastest growing Spanish population in the USA, they come here to work in the poultry industry. In the cased of the
poultry plants they are not paid under the table they use fake IDs to get hired. I work very closely with them and I have found them to be, on the
whole, nice hard working people. I hand out their pay checks and can tell you they have taxes held out, including SS.
I have had BBQs and Christmas Parties and such with them for over 10 years and have not been treated any different than I would at anyones elses home.
A couple of Christmas's ago they pitched in and bought me a very nice leather coat that had to cost a couple hundred dollars.
Their are some that work for under the table money I am sure. So do a lot of the poor whites, blacks and asians around here. They still have to buy
food, cars, rent houses, etc; all of which is taxed and is money being pumped into our local economy.
All in all they have been a welcome addition to our area and most hope for nothing more than to become real citizens. If my neighbor felt I was a
parasite and freeloader I would probably be hostile too
Oh yeah.... The link doesnt work either
