An Alabama employment agency that sent 70 laborers and construction workers to job sites in that state in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina says the men were sent home after just two weeks on the job by employers who told them 'the Mexicans had arrived' and were willing to work for less.We should take up a collection to send these displaced workers to Washington and have a chat with Senators McCain, Kennedy and Reid. Blacks are getting shafted by illegal immigration. I wonder how they feel when they hear Democrats pandering to illegals?
Linda Swope, who operates Complete Employment Services Inc. in Mobile, Ala., told The Washington Times last week that the workers -- whom she described as U.S. citizens, residents of Alabama and predominantly black -- had been 'urgently requested' by contractors hired to rebuild and clear devastated areas of the state, but were told to leave three job sites when the foreign workers showed up.
'After Katrina, our company had 70 workers on the job the first day, but the companies decided they didn't need them anymore because the Mexicans had arrived,' Mrs. Swope said. 'I assure you it is not true that Americans don't want to work.
'We had been told that 270 jobs might be available, and we could have filled every one of them with men from this area, most of whom lost their jobs because of the hurricane,' she said. 'When we told the guys they would not be needed, they actually cried ... and we cried with them. This is a shame.'
