On a serious note! You support illegal aliens who pump out the kids and get free welfare, lunch programs,etc., for their kids. Then you want to limit the amount of kid a person has if they are a citizen.
Birthrate for Latino is 2.3 for white 2.1 not much difference I don't care who you are one kid is enough to carry your blood on if you can't support them

More than likely not, unless she works for the government. Not too many private sector jobs have the benefits you're talking about anymore.
Then people are not going to work for them. People have health issues , they have to build for retirement , they have to earn enough to take care of their families without any help. If jobs are not going to offer this "smart" people will not take those jobs . Contruction and retail uased to pay good wages and benefits but they have decided to keep the money at the top for the CEO that needs four houses , two boats , five cars, and millions in the bank . It must stop capitalist is one thing but these people have grossly screwed up our country . Perhaps all companies need to supply benefits for their employees , no matter how small the company . If they cant they need to not have a company and work for someone else that can. You have to pay into SS but most will never get that back . wasted tax . Put that into a 401k .

they hire temp ,so they never have to hire perm . min wage no benefits . people do not work hard when they know they will not have ajob for as long as they want. You get what you pay for and youj have it . dont hire temps . cut out the middle man . If they dont work fire them. maybe your co workers or your bosses suck and no one wants to work with them . you have lots of Mexicans working there?? Thats what you find at day labor . Hard to catch them . And your company can say we are not responsiable for seeing if they are legal or not . day labor does not give any benefits but your company is still paying 17.00 to the labor company . but they dont have to pay benefits ever. Ceo's are rolling in the dough.

Same thing hiring temps at min wage ? no benefits ? It really wears on a pperson when they know if they have a bad day they wont have a job tomorrow . They will take other jobs . also not everyone goes to a temp co . they want to get hired direct the people that cant keep a job go where they can , hence day labor . CEO' s know this . Lots of people between jobs or getting out of jail.
