But hey, in recompense you get all the tacos and falafel you can eat.
When I was a kid, I grew up in an old Polish neighborhood with bakeries, sausage shops, roman catholic churches, etc.
Then when the Poles got educated and sold their businesses and went on to "bigger" jobs, the Armenian & Chaldean immigrants bought the Polish bakeries and sausage shops, the churches changed too.
Then, the Armenians and Chaldeans moved up and sold the businesses to the middle eastern immigrants with the falafel and arabic pastry shops and is now the largest middle eastern outpost in the US (thriving and growing with arabic language newspapers, mosques and halal meat markets).
All the convenience stores and gas stations are owned by arabic families (who take advantage of tax free status for 7 years, then transfer ownership to another family member for the next 7 years, etc!).
Now, all most of the housekeeping jobs in hotels across the country are dominated by latino's, mexicans and eastern europeans...the only ones willing to do the hard grunge work for such a low wage. Same with the field migrant workers. Not even a mention of African Americans (a whole other issue in itself!)
We Americans no longer want to work or have the same work ethic as previous generations. At one point, all of us were immigrants at one time!
Why is there such anger and hate in the world
