It is absolutely true in Georgia. If you consider that the Swift meatpacking plant has a 70% turnover rate then it must be true there, too.

I think "truth really hurts" is letting us know what he/she does for a job in Georgia...rather than working one he/she considers too difficult.

I think "truth really hurts" should consider that not all Americans are as lazy and interested in selling drugs as he/she is.

Well, please, provide us with the stats that these people -- Americans -- take these jobs and, after their first paycheck, quit and start selling meth out of their trailer.

I'm waiting.:-)

Rebel's bleach blonde mophead will never turn gray but here is some recent information on the severity of meth addiction in the US.

"A RAND Corporation study released on 2/5/2009, "The Economic Cost of Methamphetamine Use in the United States, 2005," estimates the national cost of Meth abuse is $23.4 billion. The study represents the first time that a comprehensive assessment of the annual costs of methamphetamine abuse has been analyzed on a national scale. While the $23 billion dollar figure for 2005 is staggering, this study provides a conservative estimate of the financial impact Meth has on the U.S. each year. Law enforcement and the criminal justice system bear some of the greatest financial burden, making up more than 15%-$4 billion-of the total annual cost. Lawmakers in recent years have passed legislation that makes it more difficult for Meth producers to buy the components needed to make the drug, but even in light of these efforts, 47% of county sheriffs in 2007 reported that Meth remains their #1 drug problem."

Until you manage to register and post a photo of your fat-arsed self, you don't have the right to comment on anyone else. So FO.

No one doubts the severity of meth addiction, moron. You said Americans take the jobs vacated by illegals and then quit after their first paycheck to sell meth out of their trailers...or something to that effect. Post the stats that show this. Hell, just post stats that show Americans take these jobs and quit AFTER THEIR FIRST PAYCHECK TO GO SELL *ANY* DRUGS.

Still waiting.
