Work Americans Won't Get To Do

Southeast Texas Industries of Buna, TX claims they can't find American workers to fill jobs on a 10 month contract job they've got. So they want permission from the local town to bring 100 Mexican workers in to do the necessary steel and metal work.

Get this: They're paying $18 an hour, plus giving the Mexican workers free room and board. According to the media reports, these workers will be on the job 12 hours a day, which means overtime, which means each of these workers will make around $50k in the next 10 months--with no expenses!

I don't know about you, but that's a pretty good job. Are there really no Americans to fill these positions? I gotta believe there are people right here in Boston, young men with high school diplomas, who'd like this work.

So contact Southeast Texas Industries and let them know you're an American and you'll take this gig.
