Been at a lot of job sites lately listening to most but not all workers complaining about working harder for less money!
I always reply you could be sitting at home trying to dodge the mortgage company and 9 times out of 10 the worker replies well they are going to get what they paid for!Oh yeah and im not working weekends.....HMMMMM
Made a oversized delivery on a Saturday in Laredo texas a week ago and the Mexican workers were happy that the delivery had to be made on a saturday giving them overtime,They helped with the chains and helped remove tarps from the machine.This made me wonder if American workers have just become spoiled and lazy or are the Mexicans that were working on the border just have better work ethics?The foreman said all workers are legal the only one on a permit was the driver taking the machine into Mexico.

what the fuckin problem is as a "worker" you are competing with individuals from 3rd world countries, and what they will do for a certain price.

let me make it easy for you...
I have a buddy who is a little off... he would cut my grass, clean my gutters, and take everyrthing out of my garage to sweep it and put it all back...he will do all that for two 40 oz. milwaukee best ice's... is that what I give him?... no, he gets a 12 pack of bud and a 20 spot. and I'm still selling him short... I guess I could tell him he's lucky to be getting two forties of cheap ass beer, and to be happy with that.... but that would make me a greedy piece of shit...just like corporate america. I say let the fuckin country burn, and if it doesn't get better so fuckin be it....

If he is happy working for that then its a fair deal lol. People have priced themselves out of jobs by living beyond there means.

I have an issue with big company CEO's making 155 X the average working mans salary. Hell, some of the assholes had made more by last Friday than I'll make all year. No reason why the gap in wages has become so rediculously large!

The average employee in Mexico makes $100.00 a WEEK, The average Mexican Citizen working in the US makes $100.00 a DAY........You tell me why they work harder & don't bitch about salaries or working on the weekends. Most Americans are to fucking spoiled & want to relive the best paid job they ever had while working @ the worse paid job they're currently @.

you know its sad to say but your right. most people know what everything for nothing. hell most of the guys we have had lately have been so slow you got to chalk there feet to make sure there still moving. one of our guys was down setting up a job at a nuclear power plant. the union electricians took 3 days to do what we did in our yard in 6 hrs.

wrong... fact is it takes 500 a week min. to live without starving. where are the 500 a week jobs?...welfare and special programs are nothing but a pay off to keep people from really freakin out for not being able to provide for their families. fact is is everyone who sponges, gets off their ass it would make it 10 times harder for the people that do get up and work to maintain their jobs for what they are getting paid now... and the money the government saved from nt giving to those "sponges" they would just waste it as they are doing now, and only make the "global market machine" move at an even more accelerated rate... we are going in a certain direction regardless of the thing we as "citizen choose to do" we haven't the power as "the people" to change shit anymore....we WERE an industrial, and manufacturing icon...not anymore. and whats even funnier is as other countries besides us start becoming bigger manufacturers, and consumers than we are... we no longer will have the means to be on top....

I've worked for the same nuclear manufacturing facility for 16 years. I can tell you that around here workers get worse every day. Any foreign labor we get have better work ethics.
