Re: “Workers at Smithfield: Like hogs to slaughter

Having had a conversation on a subject similar to the content of this article, maybe my youth leads me to a less favorable opinion. But I feel a sort of "so what" attitude towards undocumented workers walking out of jobs that they are not legally qualified to hold. Of course the companies that stand to benefit from these workers would try to manipulate them by making good with clergy of their religion and give them a grace period, but the country, more visibly North Carolina, as a whole is in dire straits because of the increased burden of a growing population made up of some individuals that fail to give to the good of the whole (taxes).This country has a system set up so that these workers, in search of a better future, can lawfully become a part of our society and rightfully voice their opinions. I don't think that its right for employers to treat immigrant workers unfairly, but if they are here illegally their complaints fall close to the pot calling the kettle black or more the pot that snuck into the kitchen, disliked the treatment on arrival, and instead of leaving or returning by the proper avenue tried to complain about the treatment it recieved.
