Jobs Challenge

Quote:
When the economy began going south a few years ago, a lot of people lost their jobs and are still out of work. But in Today's Living, a unique job option.


As part of a national campaign called Take Our Jobs, the United Farm Workers Union will train anyone to pick or cut anything that winds up in America's food basket.

Of course, this project wasn't just created to get people back to work.

Farmers are often criticized for hiring migrant workers.

But they say most Americans don't want farming jobs and the union wants to make a point.

You'll earn between $8 and $9 an hour and you'll typically work 6 days a week, for four to five months a year.

Julio Miranda doesn't have a job, but he still says count him out. Hey says, "There's two types of jobs, outside with the sun, with the one hundred degrees and there's a job inside with AC and a tie and good. Those are the jobs that are available. Those are the jobs that undocumented workers are working on. They work long hours under miserable conditions, so go and try it."

The united farm worker's union isn't say when they'll start the training. They don't think, though, they'll have many takers.

People are not hungry enough yet. But it's coming.

na, why go do that, they'll just extend unemployment benefits

i agree, americans will get hungry enough soon. i just heard a statistic about how people don't get serious about getting a new job until unemployment is about to run out. so what's the governments solution, extend unemployment benefits. there's a huge majority of people that don't get hired until unemployment benefits are almost over, its the same premise, they aren't hungry until the "benefit" is about to dry up.

Very sad to say that the above statement is true for the most part. I was raised to consider it a privalage to have a job, something to show pride in. My dad worked his tail off while my mom stayed at home and raised my brother and I. We did not always have it good, but we had what we needed.
A few months ago, I was let go from a job I had held for just shy of 5 years. I was told "Good luck" on a Friday. I came home, enjoyed my long weekend and first thing Monday morning I was looking for work. Took me about 3 weeks to find a job, but I got it. I received one payment from unemployment and I felt bad having to receive it.

Does anyone find pride in earning what they have anymore? Or are we just going to continue to be a society of "But I deserve it" morons?
OK, enough of my rant, but JPDoc got me thinking. Thanks Dave.

Jeff

I for two do. I'm in college right now, but during school I'm still pushing 30 hours a week with 21 credits and now during the summer I'm working 8hrs/7days lifeguarding and taking 9 credits.

That said, as a dairy farmer we've had problems with fraudulent workers coming in with false documents - but really, these are the hardest workers we have. For milking schedules, we expect the crew to be there at 4:00am. We'd love to hire English-speaking natural-born Americans, but they're non-existent! Rather, we get imbeciles who arrive 4:15am when the cows have already been loaded (by the migrants), and have the gall to expect $15/hr to attach a vacuum to udders, rinse, and repeat. The economy and the price of dairy simply wouldn't permit something like that. Instead, the migrants we get arrive at 3:45am, dressed and ready, don't complain, and are some of the hardest workers we've ever had.

As far as I'm concerned, if you don't value your job whether it's Wall Street or Wal-Mart, get the hell out and give it to someone who does.
