I like this.

The Company hires illegal aliens, treats them like shit and shorts them on pay.

1.) WHO did the illegal aliens think they were dealing with? A company that does this sort of thing WILL SCREW YOU!!! He hires illegally, WHAT THE F*CK WERE YOU THINKING???

2.) THe Company hired illegal aliens to "Do the jobs Americans won't do" and aparrently even illegal aliens have their limits too, such as WAY too much unpaid overtime and witholding of wages.

The article states:

"Others said they worked 80- or 100-hour weeks without earning overtime pay or even the prevailing minimum wage."

Seems as the "Jobs Americans won't do are also unacceptable for illegal aliens and are illegal, such as hiring illegal aliens in the first place.

WHAT THE SAM HILL IS ANYBODY THINKING HERE?????

""People should be aware of the kinds of exploitative situations that are happening out there, in particular with immigrant workers,""

Well no shit! Illegal ALiens (NOT IMMIGRANTS) are going to get exploited, that is why the business want them, to do 80-110 hours a week 7 days a week with no breaks and not pay them shit!!!!

In another case, the Company Rep. who hired illegal aliens said he did not have to pay back wages and overtimebecause they were illegal aliens and were not legally able to work. A Federal Judge told him he was to check and if they were working for the man, they needed to be treated the same as any other worker.

SO the word is getting out to the illegal aliens, they can sue for back wages, they have to be paid minimum wages, and they have to be paid for overtime.

hmmmmm! Maybe now they are realizing WHY "Americans were not doing the jobs illegal aliens were doing"!!!!

I am writing you today to voice my opinion about the "so called" immigration reform. I speak on behalf of almost all middle class working families who are legal citizens of this nation and proud Americans when I say; WE DON'T WANT TO SUPPORT THOSE WHO CAME HERE ILLEGALY, AND WE WANT THEM OUT OF OUR COUNTRY!

I am not a prejudice person. I have Mexican friends. One of whom learned English and went through the complicated channels of becoming a U.S. citizen. He said "It was hard but worth the effort." I want to add that he speaks very good English; and is proud to be an American.

He tells me how many of the illegal’s here "Southeast Texas" do not want to learn our Language; but that we should learn theirs. He also says they believe that parts of Texas and Southern New Mexico are still theirs.

They are not here to be proud Americans; they are here to make money TAX FREE and end up retiring in Mexico with their proud Mexican heritages intact. I run into them all the time. They are rude, and from what I can see have no moral values whatsoever. I have had plenty just come up and cut in line at the convenience store, and they loiter around the gas pumps. They spit on America while she gives handouts. I want our country to make them go home, LEARN ENGLISH!, go through the proper channels, pass the tests, and show that they really want to become an American, because this policy they are trying to pass for reasons truly unknown to the public is never going to solve the 12 million illegal alien and growing with every handout problem that this country has.

After seeing the one-sided coverage the Media has been giving to ILLEGAL ALEINS; I now understand that the media is just as corrupt as the U.S. Government. The American people have had their voices stripped from them by people not from this country; and in a few years the government will have added another 15 million ignorant voters which will dilute the power of the true American's voice.

THIS GOVERNMENT IS SLOWLY TAKING AWAY THE VOICE OF THE PEOPLE, JUST LIKE IT TOOK AWAY THE TRUE VOICE OF THE NOW BIAS MEDIA.

THIS COUNTRY IS FALLING APART.

Citizens need to stand up and act. We wouldn't be having this discussion if employers were afraid of enforcement including fines and jail time.

Subject: Anal Fissure Bob Returns
Date: Wed, 1 Dec 93 22:52:00 +0200

As you know, my anal fissure Bob and I were due to be separated today. By that most tasteless of medical marvels, violent anal dilation, Bob was to be no more.

The hospital scheduled the dilation over a week ago. They had sent me some medicine that I was to take the night before, and the morning of the procedure. It consisted of an overdose of some kind of laxative pill and two suppositories the size of a sputnik.

Yesterday evening I had ingested the pills and inserted the Grogan Buster(tm) industrial strength stool liquefier. Around ten, I began to feel the need, and by 10:15 I was sitting on the throne enjoying one of the most massive squats of my life. Everything, and I mean EVERYTHING that was not original equipment that came with my digestive tract was madly scrambling for the exit.

Sound like fun? Well, for a while it was. Then things began to go wrong.
