"Americans don't really want jobs all that bad, during the month we looked for employees we had three people come in the first two quit halfway
through there shift because it was either to hard, or they were to good for the job"
Can i ask what the job was offering? was it under 10-15 dollars?
heh having been through that busi, I worked in a kitchen as well from dishwasher -prep line - line cook- desserts
So Ive spent enough time and learned all the positions in the back, I can tell you now why they quit, who the f want to stick hands in other peoples
food and get cut scratched burned and splashed with all kinds of chemicals for 4-9 bucks and hour, when you can work in a crappier job, do less work,
not get hurt, and get paid the same amount?
The problem is the minimum wage in this country is retarded, who the F can live off 8 (7.25) bucks and hour hell just a pack of smokes or a monster
energy drink 3.50$-9.45$ really a pack of smokes or a drink wipes out an hour of work for most people lol. lets not forget about gas to get
8x40 hours = #ty life
Not to mention you have contractors in this country which is basically a middle man to getting a job, people get hired through them and placed, but
then don't get sick, vaca, health , or over time , and if they do its like 1 year over what normal people get obtaining the same job.
So its not just immigrants, you have the same young men /fathers looking for work. You have the mothers or single woman looking for work, and you have
new immigrants female and male looking for work now add in contractors who get "around" the system, inflation, depression, taxes on every damn
product, taxes on every damn service, you get a nice BIG SOUPBOWL OF CRAP.
so its not that americans dont want to work, its just that we live here and actually know what the cost of life is and what jobs SHOULD be paying. so
get paid 8 bucks to stuff envelopes , or 8 bucs to get cut, burned, get sick, touch other peoples chewed food, disgusting smells, and usualy get to
take trash out because you are just a dishwasher and get it all over you when bag rips ect ect.
now if the dishwashing job paid 15-25 dollars and hour id bet there would be a frikin line out the door for the job and people would kill to never
lose it heh?
people from other countries dont have $%^& so they will work for $%^& and work in #$%^&* and for all purposes probably dont know what they should be
making doing anythign in this country to begin with.
Then there is also the fact of women in the workplace (not being sexists) as soon as woman became part of the work force, TPTB said to themselves"
DING LIGHTBULB, there's 2 people working now, we can charge double for everything.
They didn't do it right away because people would have noticed the scam , look now, same size houses from past are almost double triple the price
they would have been purchasing them then. Every damn thing in this country has double and tripled in just a short amount of time and that was before
bush or obuma.
but from the looks of it , they are not going to curb immigration, they arent going to increase the min wage, and theres no way to take all woman, or
all men out of the workforce at this point so. its basically a doomed system.
with all that combined you can hardly say its just because americans dont want to to work...
its americans dont want to get ripped off trying to work
