Pro tip: make yourself valuable enough that you don't ever have to worry about losing your job. Make yourself invaluable at your job, so you're never the "weakest link"
@FP Waiter, Also, don't forget to sign a contract with the devil, it helps!

@FP Waiter, To add to that, do it by legitimate means, which means working hard abd being reliable. Never outright refuse work unless it's insane, and stick to promises. Funnily enough, those are probably also the fundamental qualities of being a good human being.
@FP Waiter, He who is too valuable to lose is never promoted, though. Be careful.
@FP Waiter, Got it * grabs bat * Can't work well if you're a cripple
@FP Waiter, I tried that. It was going fine until everyone died.
@FP Waiter, My BJ's are indispensable
Dont wanna get toooo political, but people are refering to the fact that they will do the work for less money. In turn, higher ups wont have to spend as much for workers and can turn a larger profit.
@Free Hat, yup. Its not even political and more business orientated. But its basically cheap labour, they will do the work because they, 1. Wont get a different job, 2. They'll do a job no one else from a the upper society would think about doing for less than the national wage, 3. They will usually not ask for a pay raise. Most First world countries exist on cheap foreign labour. Its also why so many people who are educated in those countries might not get any kind of job. I saw a kid hand in a CV to a Costa yesterday, and the guy just whipped out like 300 cvs and put it on the bottom. Guessing by both of their facial expressions that neither of them were too happy.
@Lil Greg, its sad tbh. Some people get screwed for no other reason than they cant be payed what they deserve
@Free Hat, They can, but greed oftentimes gets the best of people.
@Lil Greg, CV?
@Jdrawer, its like a resume but not tailored for a specific job
@Free Hat, a) my sister-in-law is a fat POS who complains that immigrants are taking jobs when she won't get off her a$$ to fill out a job applications b) she can't even get up to get the remote, why would she work in a restaurant? C) knowing broken English AND Spanish is better than someone who can barely speak English and NO Spanish like my SIL. D) she's a ham beast
@SchroedingerPussPuss, i dont understand if you are trying to prove the point of the poc or just trash your sister in law
@Free Hat, both actually. It could've been worded better but I'm exhausted and ready to have my baby (going through lots of contractions and no sleep). Pardon my lack of direction please
@SchroedingerPussPuss, haha no problem! Im just trying to say that some people who work hard say they get their jobs taken. Obviously puting an unbrella over everything is always a losing bet
@Free Hat, truth. I've seen it both ways- but in South Texas, normally Bubba Joe who owns the construction company complains about the immigrants, but still hires them in the grocery store parking lot over the citizen because they save money for their business (and a lot of Americans don't WANT to work out in the heat). They don't want the jobs that immigrants do. Doesn't matter what the pay is!
@SchroedingerPussPuss, there really is no right way. Its an unfortunate part of capitalism
@Free Hat, people also forget to look at the fact that not speaking spanish prevents you from getting most jobs that people would desire.
@CannibalJim, hits too close to home?
I wouldn't say it's because someone is worthless, more like managers and business owners violating workers rights by hiring immigrants and paying them less than minimum wage
Or maybe your job is literally just manual labor that anyone with all four limbs can do and the boss just wants the cheapest labor.
Apply cold water to burn...
Is this supposed to make an excuse for illegal immigration? Cause if it is then they know fcking sht about a country's economic structure
@BabaBooey, yeah lower wages are a thing too yaknow
@smii7y, no, i think it's to show that people who complain about immigrants taking their jobs are just too stupid to get a job. But that's not true. They are just lazy af.
@BabaBooey, pretty sure it's a poorly quoted Louie CK joke
I think there should be open borders
@benderama, Really? That's an interesting (read: unpopular) opinion. I'd like to hear more about why and engage in civil discourse on the matter, if you would too.
Well they only take the jobs that U DONT NEED PROPER ENGLISH OR CONNECTIONs....theyvarent taking jobs away from rich assholess...they are taking jobs away from the poor man....taking jobs away from those who worked so hard to come to this country legitimately
@BabaBooey, if we are strictly sticking to an illegal immigrant topic on job opportunities you should be angry with the companies that hire them. Paying someone less to do the same job just as well is good business. Unethical maybe (and yes, illegal) but good business nonetheless.
@BabaBooey, I'm glad you're against income inequality
@BabaBooey, if someone with no skills and can barely speak the language can take your job, either a. A monkey could do your job or b. You weren't worth the pay. Capitalism is a harsh system where the cream rises to the top and the rest suffer at the hands of the 1%. The beautiful thing is if you have the balls and the brains you can go far, really far. However it also means that the other 99% will end up fighting for every penny they can get. If a man is willing to do the work it shouldn't matter where he was born or what language they originally spoke. Y'all want to make this country great again, then let's kick out the lazy Americans who suck the country dry with welfare, and give their citizenships to the local illegal immigrants who actually work. Maybe they weren't born here but I have seen them work circles around ppl who were. They fought harder to be here than anyone born here, and if thats not the american way idk what is
@Hamilton Porter, ye
@Theelonelyman, your inadequate sense of morality is the reason why they call u the lonely man...it is the same reason why i GET CALLED DADDY
@BabaBooey, you're welcome daddy
Theyre not getting the job because theyre more qualified. Theyre getting the job because their willing to work for like 200% less than you.
@BlazingBowman, I agree but it means they have a job that doesn’t even require the speak the native language in order to replace them.
How do I delete comments?
@Soser5, you can always edit them.
