Post closings from your area or other reports connected with the bogus You'll Be Sorry efforts of this misguided Day without Cheap Labor.
The sky is still way up there today.
Closing in on 12 noon here- Earth still spinning.
Love their slogan, "Need Lawn Care Help? Call on Jesus!"
Kids school is fairly empty. Lots of kids decided to skip. Not like that’s going to stop the world.
There are no blueberries getting picked in west Michigan, normally that takes place in the fall, just sayin.
My job takes me to manufacturing facilities that employ lot of immigrant labor. I have had no trouble finding a parking spot today. Some people have shown up. Some are going home early.
I work from home, so I don’t know if any local restaurants are closed.
I will let you know if the taco truck fails to show up at the construction site next door.
I noticed there was a bit more traffic this morning. Unsure of correlation, but for a second I thought I was going to miss a light...
When will the welfare bums have a strike and refuse our money?
So far, today is excellent, and living without illegals is the best thing that has happened to me since they dramatically expanded the flavors of Doritos.
LOOK! A SQUIRREL!
No problemo! Lunch is served.plates are hot!
Our machine shop is staffed exclusively with Hispanic machine operators and everyone is working today. Mostly older, hard working types. I’m not surprised. Though my Ecuadorian draftsman has had a bit of a chip on his shoulder lately...
Schools are sending home letters here esp in the illegal ridden areas to warn this is not an excused absense—big deal.
I’m in LA where normally one out of two people you see is an immigrant, and half of those are illegal.
No change today.
No tomatoes being picked in East Tennessee...oh, wait...it’s February. Never mind.
Pardon my confusion.
Is this a day without Immigrants or a day without ILLEGAL Immigrants?
Remember, Immigrants are Invited, Invaders are Repelled.
We should have a day without managers and owners. Maybe next payday.
I’m confused too. As a naturalized immigrant do I get a free day off or not. Should I check with the German immigrant society ?.
It was reported some years ago that San Antonio, TX tried something similar. The stores, not just restaurants, reported that profits were down 13% and thefts were down by 59%. Just saying...
Well I was just going by the official title for the thread title. Preety sure where were sitting the help are citizens of another country ;)
>>>Im confused too. As a naturalized immigrant do I get a free day off or not. Should I check with the German immigrant society ?<<<
Thank goodness I still don’t own my Porsche 911.
With my luck, it would have broken down today and Franz my German Mechanic would be hanging out at the Beach rather than being at work.
“Is this a day without Immigrants or a day without ILLEGAL Immigrants?”
I’m glad someone else noticed that. Despite a poster calling on “undocumented” immigrants to strike all I’ve heard this morning is a strike by immigrants as a whole.
3 reasons why whomever is in charge is trying to expand the strikers;
1. It would be easy for ICE to know who wasn’t legal by their absence.
2. Employers could no longer claim ignorance of a worker’s status if they didn’t show up for work today.
3. What if all the striking illegal immigrants didn’t “paralyze” the country as they threatened to? How much power do they really have?
I have been at two facilities of the same company today. At one place, probably less than half of workers showed up. At the other, almost everyone showed up. As you said, those who are there are mostly the older, hardworking types. And most of the women. The company anticipated large absences, because someone wrote on a white board —If you are going to be absent tomorrow, call in before 7.
Then,we could set up some kind of "guest worker" system that allows foreigners who've been offered *temporary* jobs (picking vegetables,for example) to come for a while and then leave.
Although I'm no expert on agriculture or ranching it seems possible to me that a permanent ban on all foreigners might hurt our farmers.
In Hollywood and other high rent districts, is Lawn Maintenance noise abated? How many Taco Trucks working today?
The Yuge Manatee!
I have been out and about in Clearwater, FL (restaurant, shopping, grocery store, etc.) and I don’t notice any change in the usual situation. The restaurant I had lunch in with some friends is one of those liberal do-gooder type places and kitchen was running at full steam.
I also see the same number of landscape crews in my neighborhood that I would see on any other weekday. This is the industry the majority of our Hispanics are in around here.
Update... the taco truck is working today.
I got a pedicure from a lovely Thai lady, and a nice Hispanic lady checked out my groceries.
On their flyer they even call on residents and citizens to skip work!
Two restaurants on my block that I rarely and sometimes patronize I’ve noticed are closed with signs in the window. I won’t be eating there ever again. I’m half-way tempted to take a longer stroll and take names. I may just do that.
Are these morons playing dumb or do they really not know the difference between legal and illegal immigration and should therefore be reported to ICE? My guess is it’s the former case since it seems every liberal pet issue requires obfuscation in order to deceive into going along with their bad ideas - legal & illegal immigration, birth control & abortion, gun safety & gun bans, “investments” & cronyism, etc etc
