Funny but true, But at the same time have have seen 4 "non Caucasians" 3 held shovels while the 4th digs. And these same people think of us as fat and lazy.

ex. The only reason we are going to move into a house soon and get out of this apartment is that my wife makes $31 an hour doing a few "Graveyard Shifts" a week. I only get $12 and before my wife could start working again it was a real struggle.
one other thing that gets me annoyed is how others look down at you because you work in construction. Yet who builds the roads and the houses and schools and ........basicly these people that make money over the Internet at home have no grasp on reality.
I don't think the village people did us (as in anyone in a trade) any good.
We are really just shooting ourselves in the foot each time we degrade the occupations that have built this society. How many years until we have to get a translator when we go to hardware stores. How long until we have to learn a second language so we can compete with other companies?
