“A Day Without Immigrants” Strike? Can These People Be Serious?
If you’re ever tempted to declare that you are on strike from your family and that they will just have to suffer through a day without your presence, you’d better think twice. Your family may very well take a cool trip somewhere without you and in the future be able to bring up the pleasant experience and preface the memory with something like “Remember that fun day when Dad was on strike and we took that cool trip to the railway station and had a wonderful lunch without him?”
Well, evidently immigrants in America are not so circumspect and are behaving rather too boldly, because they are officially taking a day off from serving us evil American citizens, and they think that this will teach us devils to appreciate, perhaps even adore, the immigrants in this country for the essential services they provide, with special attention given to the illegal aliens living here.
What a load of crap! When the people who occupy the lowest rung on the economic ladder think they’ll punish us with their absence, I see only disappointment ahead for them. What kind of idiocy would make people who often speak English haltingly and poorly think that they can hold us hostage to their presence, or lack of presence? Usually people who are new to a nation and are trying to establish themselves by buying a home, raising a family, getting a good job, increasing their standard of living and hopefully becoming wealthy one day, will work hard and diligently to improve their lives and convince possible future employers that they are serious and hard-working and will perform work dependably.
But here go the newest and most needy members of our society, not showing up for work, in an attempt to show us how dependent on them we are, and how much we need them. And I say “Bullshit”.
My day is going fine, thank you. I have not been stupid enough to make my life dependent on a bunch of immigrants who work at the lowest wage and benefit levels and who could at a whim deprive me of the things I need and want in my life. The more these fools strike and withhold service, for work that we have been repeatedly told “no American will do”, they more they’ll find out that we can do without them and their low skills, and that there are many Americans who will indeed do the work immigrants are too haughty to perform.
Liberals who organize and encourage such behavior as this strike only add to the resentment that Americans feel toward our uppity immigrants who believe they have a constitutional and God-given right to be here and live off of our generous nation and its willingness to help the needy and the newcomers. This kind of demonstration is why Americans voted for President Donald Trump and not the socialist Hillary, who is probably behind this misguided affront to Americans. This is not helpful.
