Werd. People have no clue. I love how the people that generally bitch about "foreigners" are the same assholes that the rest of us try to avoid at work, school, family reunions, the movies, wherever. The assumption that people will be sympathetic to his position, is troubling. I mean, I'm all for fighting "outsourcing," but there's a big difference between a software engineer losing his job to a company in India, than a redneck working graveyard at the mill, making less money than his latino supervisor.

Historically, don't Mexicans make less than most other minority groups? What the hell kinda job are you doing to make less than the Mexicans, sport? Don't get me wrong - in no way am I condoning your post - just asking a question of our resident drop-out.

He's obviously a better negotiator than you. Or he has more experience, perhaps? Ever think about that? But I'm sure you'll come right back with, "no, we started at the same time, and have the same amount of experience." In which case, the joke's on you, redneck.

Well, maybe you shouldn't really base that about ethnicity...

Maybe they have more experience and are more qualified than you are;)
