Whoa…McCain gets booed defending illegal immigrants by saying that Americans won’t do the same jobs illegal immigrants would.
You don’t understand how much I want to yell out MCCAINS AN ELITIST. I can’t believe McCain would basically call Americans lazy and then offers $50..Y&^@&*#^&* never mind heres the video,
Finally have the video, to see what McCain looked like while trashing America,
Ok now that I have calmed down. I was about to say that McCain says he would give $50 AN HOUR, to Americans to go out there an pick lettuce. What the hell, illegal immigrants don’t even get that much money and if they did then there would be riots in the street, with Lou Dobbs leading the riots.
I for one would never pick lettuce because Im not used to manual labor, but could you imagine, millions of working people out there. They would quit their $8 an hour jobs to pick lettuce for $50 an hour. I believe at the time he was trying to defend his immigration stance, but come on, I don’t even think the most liberal of liberals would think something like this. There are many unemployed people out there who would die to have a job right now, to have some money to pay for food…and this is what he thinks.
Ok Im going to have to cut this short, before I burst open.
Also, what does he mean by he’ll give us money to work the whole season and not just one day. Most Americans go a year or so without a vacation because they have bills to pay. Also the fact that McCain can just give away $50 AN HOUR proves he is nothing more then an elitist pig. My personal views is that we shouldn’t be giving excuses for illegal immigrants and workers who hire them. My reason for this stance alone is not because they take jobs away for legal Americans. Illegal immigrants get treated unfairly, they don’t pay taxes, at times they don’t get proper medical care, they get paid less because their illegal, they are subjected to horrible working conditions and the list goes on. If legal American citizens were paid $50/hr or $8/hr to pick lettuce, Im sure we wouldn’t be subject to the same horrible working conditions as illegal immigrants are being paid now.
McCain is really out of touch and doesn’t understand what Americans, who aren’t rich, have to go through. OK, seriously this time Im done writing.
Heres the transcript from a Q&A with construction and building trade unions,
SEN. JOHN MCCAIN (R), ARIZONA: Now, my friends, I’ll offer anybody here $50 an hour if you’ll go pick lettuce in Yuma this season and pick for the whole season. So — OK? Sign up. OK.
You sign up. You sign up, and you’ll be there for the whole season, the whole season. OK? Not just one day. Because you can’t do it, my friend.
