Funding help for day laborers

From NY1:


Abused, threatened, and cheated out of their wages, those are just some of the problems that day laborers say they face on a regular basis. Now, they are hoping the city will do something to help workers like them.

"I think that one of the problems we have is that they think we are immigrants and we don't have papers," said day laborer Raymundo Garcia.

In most cases, they do not have the papers, making it that much more difficult for them to find jobs through regular channels.

Local advocacy groups estimate there are about 10,000 day laborers in the New York metropolitan area. Hoping to address the problem, the Temporary Commission of Day Laborer Job Center, which was created by the city in 2005, has made its final recommendations to the mayor and City Council speaker on how to improve services for those workers and hopefully get them off the streets.

In its 10-page report, the commission recommended that the city continues to fund community-based organizations to create or expand job centers, where the workers can learn English, along with workplace health and safety training.


First we encourage them to come here illegally by declaring this to be a sanctuary city, and now on top of providing free medical care to them we are shelling out tax dollars to fund commissions to help solve their other problems. Sounds like a smart plan during tough economic times.

omg, fxxk that! the city better find out if they do have the legal right to be working in AMERICA, god knows most aren't and they don't pay taxes and have fake social security cards. My sister had one a man using her number and she called the federal government and they did nothing. why don't the city crack down on the illegals and stop wasting our tax dollars to educate them. that's why our country is falling apart we pay for their medical and they rob the system. PRO UNION, american workers and the legal ones that deserve to be here on work visas......

linda said...

oh also lmao, only four men showed up for this workshop out of est. 10,000 hello assholes that's because they are here illegal and don't want to show face or give up a name. the city should use our money to deport their asses back to their country and let's call it a fxxking day.

Maybe "THE BLOOMING ASSHOLE OF A MAYOR" will hire them to teach him more spanish. He in exchange can teach them English. What a bunch of losers. They all need to go away.......... I am so sick of the criminals and the people who help them. If they were here legally, I would not mind my tax dollars helping them out. But they are not and it pisses me off. I wonder, did "DIZZY LIZZY" use these criminals to renevate her office?

This is a tweeder program by the politicans.

They are taking YOUR taxes that are earned by YOUR sweat, and that YOU pay for services for YOUR family, and giving it to those people.

All this because they want a photo op and votes.

Monies that can go for your home improvement, your kids college, your family table, are being used for bike lanes for the Tower People and waitstaff for the Brahmans living in landmarked districts.

What is this about the middle class endangered?

They are endangered because of the clubhouse.

Remember that.

"I think that one of the problems we have is that they think we are immigrants and we don't have papers," said day laborer Raymundo Garcia.

++++++++++++++++++++++

What does Garcia suggest that we think? That they are natural born citizens here in the USA or that they are all naturalized? Raymundo, go home where your citizenship makes you a legal citizen, free to perform any work you're qualified to do. And, you won't have to learn English, or accept low-paying jobs. Back home, if an employer cheats you, you can openly take him to court for compensation.

Go home and start a revolution to fix your own native country of natural citizenship. You have been oppressed by your own fellow citizens, not the great citizens of the US! We never even heard of you until you invaded this country. Raymundo is too lazy and stupid and naturally criminal to improve his own life or native country. So, he expects us here to take care of him and his spawn. Commissar Death and Taxes wants Raymundo here to clean the toilets, fix the roofs, cook dinner for and be nanny to his extremely greedy and wealthy cronies.

But, I believe Raymundo would rather come here illegally to take jobs (money, home, food, clothing, school and medical care) from the immigrants who stood in line to ASK PERMISSION and wait until PERMISSION is granted, as well as from minorities here who are natural born citizens. In short, Raymundo would rather cheat and steal from others. And, that fits the Commissar's plan exactly!

++++++++++++++++++++++

What do these groups advocate? The overthrow of our form of government into one-world rule by the UN? Do they advocate that these "noble" louts need to be compensated by us for their own failures? Do they advocate that, but for our religious beliefs, our work ethic, our success, or smarts, these people would not have been robbed of their God-given entitlement to be nursed by us from cradle to grave?

Let's advocate that the Commissar and the sanctuary city policy be dumped on November 3.

When you see the day laborers like I do - 50-100 of them standing on 60th street between Roosevelt and 37th Avenue. Also on Broadway and 41st street - call 911 NOT 311 and report their loitering.

See something? SAY SOMETHING! (Official NYPD advice)

And then watch the cops drive by, look around, and mark the job either unfounded or unnecessary, because they know better than anyone, that our politicians have tied their hands in regards to these invaders, and have even threatened those jobs, if the cops even attepmt ANY intervention or enforcement towards these day-laborer locusts.
In addition, don't be surprised if Bloomberg, Patterson and/or Obama eventually makes reporting on our illegal guests a crime. Don't think it can't happen if we don't start standing up for ourselves.

I was at a town meeting in maspeth and i believe i spoke with someone from l.i.c. 108pct and i had asked him why they don't do more about them loitering and he told me because it would be singling them out (racist) and then this women from bloomazz office stepped into our conversation and said; they would be having this workshop and i said "what" our tax dollars for illegals? she said what is wrong with trying to educated them on their rights, i said well because they are breaking the law and it's illegal! if american children or adults would to hang out all day and night on corners we would get a summons or possibly be arrested, but not the illegals. Time for change!! we need to go back to old school and start to p/u the illegals and send their asses home. Our parks would be cleaner, gang related issues will drop and the streets would be rid of such of an eyesore to the communities. Hey my mom came in from Poland the legal way and so did a lot of other folks, but they are allow to continue to work off the books, not pay taxes and then bitch they don't get paid the right amount, sorry asshole you have no rights, unless your here on a work visa. notice again only show four men sitting in our tax paying workshop. give back to the american people who need help with work.

Why would an honest law-abiding taxpayer want to fund Illegal Activities? If the Advocacy Groups state there are 10,000 illegal day workers that means there are 20,000 of them. It's time to put Americans first. How many Americans and Legal Immigrants are out of work now in this economy? It's time to help out our own. These illegals are a total drain on our economy. They get free medical, free education and food stamps. Most have bogus ID papers and fake social security cards. They break our laws over and over, yet they get rewarded. The honest people who abide by the laws and always do the right thing get the shaft. Senior citizens, who can't afford their medicine in CVS split their pills in half or take their meds every other day. Go to Elmhurst Hospital and watch the Illegals get their meds for free and check out the line for WIC, where all the illegals get free baby formula and care. It's a disgrace. If the Advocacy Group wants to start a funded program for Day Laborers, let them set up a transportation fund to deport them all back to their countries. I'm so sick of watching our politicians destroy this country. Most politicians are lawyers, who are sworn to uphold the laws of the land. Don't you just love how they look the other way for these criminals? It's shocking! Time to set up a fund for Americans out of Work. Get rid of the day laborers and these jobs will go to the people who BELONG here and need work.

Oh boy, look at all this sanctimony.

Here is a reality check for you: It's not Wallstreet-Investment bankers etc hiring these people and drawing them to your neighborhoods -it is those self righteous two-bit businessmen and your cheap neighbors who don't want to pay enough to get an American for the work.

You know the ones, those "great Americans" and "ditto heads'.

If this situation bothers you, stop hiring them, stop patronizing businesses that do...the problem will go away.

We in Queens tend not to hire people to cut the grass in our postage-stamp sized yards. We do it ourselves. It's the restaurants, construction companies, etc. who do it. And they wouldn't be able to hire them if we stop them before they get here in the first place.

I DON'T HIRE ILLEGALS TO DO MY WORK. AND IF CONTRACTORS ARE HIRING WITHOUT DOING BACKGROUND CHECKS THEY SHOULD BE FINED BY THE GOVERNMENT. UNION ALL THE WAY!

All these rich, money-savy people are idiots. They think they are getting a bargain by hiring illegals for cheap labor, but in the end it costs so much more money to feed them, house them and educate them. I'm sure all these rich people pay very high taxes. It would be cheaper and their taxes would be lower if nobody hired these people and they would all go home. If the Federal Government did their job and didn't let them in the country in the first place, we wouldn't have the Illegal problem. Since they're not doing their job by securing our borders, you would think that the local governments would correct that. Well, they don't enforce the laws either, so once again the taxpayer gets screwed. When will someone in our government have the guts to do something about this?

Ok, See something and DON'T say something.

An unattended backpack on a subway platform you should report. 50 guys loitering all day on a street corner you should not report?

If the loyal readers of this blog who bitch and bitch about illegal immigrants did what I do - call 911- to report this immigrant vagrancy, if let's say 25 of you, or 50 of you called 911 every day AND BECAME A ROYAL PAIN IN THE ASS, I assure you you will be heard and action will be taken. Keep the pressure up. (See the spirit of the title of the Crapmeister's Monday April 20 blog entry: "Is American Populism Dead?" And you, reader, are YOU Dead or Alive?)

Go to it; have at it. Make that call. The cops want you to report it: See something; SAY Something.

Complaints about homeless in HamptonsTHE ASSOCIATED PRESS
8:15 AM EDT, April 20, 2009

Homeless day laborers have made a hidden encampment in the woods near multi-million-dollar houses in New York's exclusive Hamptons.

Southampton Village Mayor Mark Epley says the laborers can't find work. In better times, they could afford rent.

Epley says he's received death threats over the issue. He says there are complaints about property values, and crowds of laborers hurting business.

The campers endured a harsh winter. Some say they fear shelters because of their immigration status.

The squalor lies on church-owned land, just beyond sprawling homes with swimming pools.

Police Chief William Wilson said officers check on the area periodically. Several arrests have been made.

Who's threatening Epley? The Calvin Klein and Tom Wolfe types [liberals getting mugged] mentioned in the article or the illegal vagrants?

"...nuisance calls to our emergency number"

This illegal immigration is an emergency. Picture yourself needing immediate medical help in the emergency room of any Queens hospital. The medical staff let you lie dying on the gurney because they are treating an illegal who was brought in ahead of you.

One man's emergency is another man's lackadaisical attitude.

Never, ever lose sight of the fact that the presence of this blight has been enabled by businesses who crave cheap labor. These companies feed big contributions to our whore politicians to pervert our laws and force taxpayers to finance this cancer. We're forced to pick up the tab for their medical and education needs while the businesses get away with murder: rock bottom labor costs (assuming they get paid at all), no taxes, no FICA, no worries over labor law enforcement--if one of these illegals gets killed or injured, no one's seeking compensation and no unions.

We enable this. Bitch all you want on this blog or do something productive by writing to Schumer and, uh, what's her name--the new senator who "reversed" her stance on illegal immigration--oh, Gillebrand, and demand that action be taken to enforce our immigration laws. Don't fall for the nonsense that this is a racist issue. It's not. It's a dollar and cents/resource issue where the middle class is being forced to finance something that is expediting our demise.

these are the shock troops sent to destroy our communities and change our ways of life. they are the front people for the nazis. Yes their lives are sad and hard but they are still puppets for the facsists. the illegals could care less about the Americans whose jobs they are stealing, make that your apartment, your government benefits your seat on the subway and/or your parking spot. they will take it. and not weep for you.

Americans are being programmed to feel so sorry for the illegals who are breaking the law. who feels sorry for out of work Americans who are law abiding? no one.

Most Americans are ashamed to take government benefits. Not illegals, watch as they line up with the jack pot babies to demand more from Uncle Sam.
