wouldn't surprise me with the attitudes many from the area have towards caucasians of hispanic descent.

I would rather see Knouse Foods sued for all the illegals they are responsible for bringing into the area. Were any of these complainers here legally? Bet not. They come here illegally and then complain about the conditions HERE? Crazy.
How about if Knouse hires all these folks that have been drawing unemployment for the past year and a half.
And you wonder why I am not surprised that this type of treatment occurs in Franklin County.

If they are Hispanic - they must be illegal.

I don't care if a person is here illegally or not, this type of discrimination is uncalled for & I hope the people at this company get slammed for it.

who cares

if the employers would stop hiring mexicans and hispanics maybe we would not have these problems..they work in our companies..they take our jobs..they get our american insurance, they bring more family members and take more jobs, they speak spanish and we never know what they are saying and /or who they are talking about..ill bet that all of them in this lawsuit live in the same home somewhere and had a plan. we dont know who is telling the truth here..but on american soil ..americans should come first..i know first hand there are to many illegals in my nighborhood..and they work for pennies and are taking all the american peoples jobs...i have no mercy for them ..my friend married on because she got pregnant and now she is getting him residency just so she can divorce him and he can still come back to the states to visit his child when ever he wants...why and the world would she get pregnant by a illegal is beyond me but i tell her all the time she is one dumb american brod..im sorry im totally aginist them being here illegal..if they are born here ..thats a different story..but the majority are not .

Knouse is going to pay a big price. Knouse is learning the lesson "there is no free lunch". Over the years they hired the Hispanics---not always Mexican---obviously at lower wages. From the allegations, the Anglos mistreated the Hispanic women because they regarded them a lesser beings. Perhaps now Knouse will realize there is no free lunch.

You don't give a child candy then scold them for eating it.
Hispanics come to America cuz they are able to work.
Instead of uproaring over them do something about the companies that hire them and bring them over.
