This sounds more like racial statement for one! And second it is not to blame anyone that is looking for work! How funny it is that everyone starts pointing out fingers at others but never see or undestand on why the economy is going down hill. Instead of pointing the finger on others, why dont you make a difference by helping or improving the way this country should be run.
Why don't you make sense? Why don't you stop defending people who could look for work in their own countries. Why are you pointing fingers at other on this board?

A big problem for swap meets where the merchandise is sold that goes out the back door.

I work at the Home Depot near Long Beach Island, New Jersey. Every single day, groups of Mexican "painters" bring in the oddest color samples I've ever seen, and want us to color match it and make more of the same. Without fail, they complain that the color is not accurate. They never buy the paint. Instead, they come back the next day, and look for the cans we prepared for them in the clearance section. Corrupt, liars, bold-faced and haughty, these Mexicans have absolutely no respect for white people or the white man's laws that govern. Yet, if an employee would dare to speak up and say the truth about these ethnic misfits, they'd be sacked on the spot. So much for justice and the American way! The statue of liberty is a whore because she lets anybody in!

Home Depot loses thousands of good employees every year, due to indiscriminate layoffs and bad judgement calls, made by ignorant, incapable so-called managers. The only people left in all the stores are either dog eat dog types, or disabled retards who can sue if they get let go. That will give you some idea about the disgusting quality of people who work at Home Depot: they are all Walmart rejects! Also, do you think any of the tens of thousands of people who have been laid off or unjustly let go from Hone Depot, would ever return there to shop again? Hell no! They and their families all go to Lowes and other competitors! Home Depot will not be missed by anybody but the Mexicans, who are robbing H.D. blind!!!

wow, you're total racist garbage, you know that?

and when it comes to the oops paint, you're supposed to add extra colorant so they can't come back the next day and get the color they wanted for cheap.

I rest my case, except I forgot to mention the Jamaican racist manager we have who uses every opportunity to destroy the jobs of as many white employees as he can.

but none of that matters at the moment, because we're talking about your racist idiocy. you're just a troll, and scum like you aren't even worth the time for me to spend on responding to you. go join the klan where you belong.
