29. Nonsense. They don't deserve a bit of blame! It's the employers who cut wages, lay-off workers,

reduce benefits, break strikes, bash unions and fire workers who try to organize unions.

And you want to let Wall Street and corporate America off the hook by blaming immigrant workers for the economic crisis .... nothing like a convenient scapegoat!

Hey, how about showing a little labor and worker solidarity?

Don't believe or repeat that reactionary bull shit about undocumented workers being union busters and scabs.

I've heard that crapola before from right-wing co-workers.

Why should undocumented workers support organized labor or you if organized labor and you don't support them?

And I've worked with undocumented workers who were union members. Those of us who are "citizens" didn't attack them, didn't act as finks against them and guess what? They were among the best and most loyal union members we could count on during negotiations with the employer.
