Cheap Lazy White Folk of Southwest

By jimstaro - Posted on 09 August 2010

One of the Lazy White Folk of Arizona:


A couple miles south is Suzie Perry's backyard — which she laments is in disarray. The yard is messy because Perry no longer hires the undocumented workers that she had paid for 15 years to maintain it. "We didn't really even think about its legality before. And now, that's sort of in the air. Like, should we be doing this or shouldn't we?" Perry says.


In Illegal Immigration Debate, To Hire Or Not?


August 9, 2010 American families who hire illegal workers to trim yards, clean toilets and paint walls are helping fuel the underground economy that attracts some 11 million undocumented workers to the U.S.

In the Western U.S., it's not hard to find someone who hires illegal immigrants. The real challenge is finding someone who will admit it on tape. Continued

But they's lazy and cheap All Over!!!

Oh, and did I say 'stupid' as well:


Ultimately, Perry decided she shouldn't — but not because she was worried about breaking the law. She wanted to make a political statement. She says she's willing to let the weeds grow if it means fewer illegal immigrants cross into the United States.

"If you build it, they will come. If there's something available for them to do, then they will fill that position," Perry says.

And if the labor force dries up — and yards across the country go untrimmed or condos go unpainted — Perry believes the immigration debate in America might move forward.

Ahhh, once upon a time folks did their own lawn and house work or got kids in the neighborhood, who stayed pretty slim and trim, to do it for a few bucks!
