¡ASK A MEXICAN!

— A Dull Knife

Dear Gabacho: Dude, TELL ME ABOUT IT! Are you hearing about what’s happening in Georgia? You’ll remember that earlier this year, the Peach State decided to go all Arizona on its growing Latino population and passed nasty legislation, thereby driving out more than a few Mexis, legal and not, from the estado. Guess what? In June, Georgia farmers announced they had over 11,000 jobs open — and no Americans were lining up to take them. Those few that did quit almost instantly, according to numerous published accounts. The same thing is happening in the restaurant industry — in July, the Georgia Restaurant Association announced half of the members they surveyed had a worker shortage, one they blamed on Georgia’s Know Nothing laws. It just goes to show what the Mexican has said all along: gabachos won’t do the jobs Mexican immigrants do because they shouldn’t. The working classes of this country have almost always been where immigrants entered, scraping their way into the middle class and beyond — that’s the American way. Conservatives would want it that ALL of us work like Mexicans for a Mexican’s salary forever — and what kind of a great country is that? That’s right — Mexico!

 

GOOD MEXICAN OF THE WEEK! I’m leaving it blank this week so ustedes can send me some suggestions — DO IT!

 

Ask the Mexican at themexican@askamexican.net, be his fan on Facebook, follow him on Twitter, or ask him a video question at youtube.com/askamexicano!
