About Those Jobs Americans Won't Do
« on: August 15, 2019, 02:32:23 PM »
As I've always said, illegals stole good jobs from Americans going back 60 years.
I got out of construction because of illegals bidding on jobs for a third of what I was getting.

Americans Apply for Jobs at Koch Foods After ICE Raid

Roughly 150 locals attended an August 12 job fair to apply for jobs at the Koch Foods’ plants in Mississippi.
The fair was run after the August 7 removal of 243 alleged illegal migrants in two of the company’s chicken processing plants, according to local authorities.

The local Jackson Clarion-Ledger newspaper reported 25 to 30 people went to the job fair in Forest, Mississippi. The report said:

Kamerio Whitley, a resident of the nearby town of Morton, spoke to reporters after he left the building. He said there were several positions available at the plant, including forklift operators.

Whitley said he applied for a job working at the plant’s rehang table, where workers hang frozen chickens.

The job starts at $12 an hour, which is decent pay for the area, Whitley said.  “That’s not bad to start, and it can always go up,” he said.

The company is also trying to hire workers with online ads. Local officials made sure the hiring process complied with federal hiring regulations, according to WAPT 16.

Koch Foods is not part of the Koch brothers’ network of energy companies.

“By 10 a.m., a crowd of dozens was on hand … Most were black and spoke with accents from the American South. A few appeared white or Hispanic,” AP reported. The news service continued:

The 25-year-old [Eddie Nicholson] has worked in chicken plants before and was considering a return, but wanted to see if wages had gone up. Plants in recent years have typically paid $11 to $12 an hour, according to labor statistics, but Nicholson said he wants $15 an hour.

Like Nicholson, many who applied Monday were chicken plant veterans. They understand the arduous and sometimes dangerous work of slaughtering, butchering and packaging chicken, from hanging up live chickens, to pulling off skin, to cutting with super-sharp knives, to boxing up chicken, much of it done in near-freezing temperatures. The line moves fast and people repeat the same motions over and over.

“It’s definitely hard,” said Cedric Griffith of Magee, who said he’s been working at McDonald’s after getting fired from another chicken processor for missing too many days. “You’re going to lose of lot of weight. Nine times out of 10, when that week is over, you’re tired.”

When AZ (2016) cracked down on illegals working in their state, the Chamber of Commerce and farmers cried they would never be able to get people to do the jobs.. They had to pay a couple of dollars an hour more but filled all the jobs with Americans. It was reported that 40% of illegals left AZ and Democrats called that a disaster for AZ because their economy improved. LOL
