Which trade?

Is the Utah construction market booming?

What's the cost of rent?

What about gasoline?

Is the market very competitive.

Why didn't you stay and try to make Mexico a better place for all?

I am in the construction trade, I make $20/hr.

No i dont get overtime.


And that right there is why citizens get mad...well among many reasons. Hell I don't even make 20$ an hr on a 40 hr week. Enough said...

Actually I'm not mad if he makes money I'm mad if he doesn't. Devalues everyone else.

Leads to me to the question of is his boss illegal?

Sorry, I completely forgot!

Criminals will always be coming whether it be through the border, deserts, airplane, mexican, muslim, japanese, italian.
I basically do not have an opinion on that matter because criminals will be getting in no matter what.
I do feel they give everyone else the bad image and thinks its wrong but nobody can stop them.

Oh I bet the employer can afford to pay him more when he's off the books. No other overhead.

How about that for annoying?

I'd rather the governments hands out of my check and let me determine he future.

Oh I think I'll start working illegally too why not.

I work as a brick mason.

Yes, the construction market at the moment is booming, due to the population growing tremendously.

gasoline is not very expensive here.

Cost of rent is not as high compared to other places like say California or New york.

You can rent a 4bdr house for $800-$1200/month

Triple that price for the same here in California not worth it.

My boss is an American born citizen.
Anybody can make $20/hr, I actually dont think I make enough but thats just me.

If i were legal I could go to bigger and better companies and make twice as much.

Sure some would make it but an open boarder is by far the easiest way in. Not everyone can afford to pay the bribes that flights cost and the coast guard is getting pretty good these days. The majority of Mexico's biggest criminal organization exploit that boarder more than boats or planes.

And yes most likely his boss is illegal too or he knows and has arrangements made due to the profit he makes.

From one human to another.

you can make your people look better. Your grandparents' generation did all they could to be more American than Americans. The strove to value the good of both the country, its people, and the ethos, its spirit.

Get legal, become the everything you see as worthy and beautiful of both those things and BE what you say you are.

Strut when you walk and pave the path you forge.

You are a man now. Get your head straight and solve this stigma on your end, like the old ones did. Get legal, get paid, give and get, and prove you are what you dont need to prove you are.

my message I give man. In love. De buena honda. Neta

Well I guess making 20/hr isnt as easy as i made it out to be. I had to go through pretty hard labor for about 2 years before i made that much. Hard work and dedication can make you anything you want!

Anyway, what's the secret to a great salsa?

What do you eat most during the week? Mexican or other?

I'm in Hong Kong, wife is chinese and we mix it up, chinese, western.

Yes they are still.

No grandparents.

I cook sometimes, she does all the cooking


I mostly just make the usual mexican food, quesadillas, tacos, and she makes all the american food. Just like you we mix it up.

I guess the secret to a great salsa is lots of avocado haha. I am actually not sure, I dont really like spicy! lol

Hiw do you feel knowing that your people are criminals? That you live 2 and 3 families to a house which makes it easy to undercut American workers? That your country is so pathetic that it cant even support its own citizens? Why don't you go back?

Like i said before, every race has their criminals.
And not every mexican lives 2 or 3 families in a house.
I dont know what you mean about Mexico not supporting its own citizens? I guess you can say the same for most other countries.
I already stated why I dont go back.
