Here's a quick link that relates to Grapes of Wrath and Today.

It seems interesting to me that we have issues with unemployment, yet many people consider some types of work to be beneath them. Thank you for the link.

the writing the them statement was fun but not enough time but good incite on what we should be looking for

something to open our eye and find out what is going on its a reminder of the 60 and 70 in the south when they did this to the African Americans also when we as consumers can't but or get the things that Alabama has to offer then maybe this will get the attention it deserves Alabama’s new immigration policy will brings social and economic costs to everyone

I completely agree with "SimRM". It's just shows how high maintenance some people have become, and they have nobody to blame but themselves.

I too agree with SimRM... there are in fact probalby a lot of jobs in the country... buttttt Americans are very stuck up and like SimRm said, they consider a majoriy of labor/manual work to be beneath them... so I don't understand why they can be upset at Mexican immigrants "stealing" jobs from Americans when no Americans wanted that job in the first place!

Americans always complain about the lack of work, but when they are given the opportunity to work a job that pays very little, has long hours, and extremely physical they usually turn it down. I was raised to enjoy working hard, challenging yourself, and not being proud when it comes to doing a job.

Yeah I agree with SimRM, about people seeing jobs as beneath them eventhough they are unemployed and in need of income. But I think we also see certain jobs such as harvesting to be a job that employs immigrants, I'm not trying to be discriminative here, but when I think about harvesting I picture immigrants as the ones who are employed just because that's what I see and what I hear. Farmers want people who will work for cheap, and some people will do just that. But still I don't understand how people can think a job is beneath them.
