This is why people find it hard to change ways. I'd worked in Mexico for over 15 years. Even though the people are interesting there is this mentally.

(El que chinga es CHINGON, el que lo chingan es pendejo)

To Translate and put it simple:

(The person who takes is Great, the person who has been taken, is a pee on.)

That is why I still insist that this mentally is dangerous and is already here in the borderland. I see it in Ft. Bliss where employees must return half their paycheck back to their supervisors. I see where in the (El Paso Area)anyone working for the city and county, these people expect better treatment or favors.

This Mexican mentally of kick backs have already reached us. It is hard to remove this mentally, since 98% of the Mexicans are taught the saying since they were born.

Anyone who wishes to rebute this, does not understand the culture.

We need to stop this mentally and start re-teaching our new immigrants the laws of our land. To respect and work for the right of others and thyself.

Carlos Slim should know. He has thousands of employees and some of them make as much as US$20 a week.
