15 Ways The New Deal Helped America's Youth

Post by WPA Today on Mon Apr 22, 2013 12:19 pm

Hi Everyone,

If you get some free time, check out my recent blog post: "15 Ways The New Deal Helped America's Youth Become Part Of The Greatest Generation."

http://nddaily.blogspot.com/

And, if you do get a chance to read it, remember that much of the work you see was performed by unemployed people hired into New Deal programs; proving, once again, that the unemployed are not "lazy," or "takers," but merely people who our current government, and our current "job creators," have turned their backs on.

Brent - There are now millions of jobs being done by illegal aliens that could be done by the nation's youth and unemployed, but at the moment the Mexican cartels have a choke hold on America's farmers. As a kid out of high school I got a job picking apples for a local farmer who had illegal alien farm workers doing the work. Unfortunately for me and the farmer, the workers didn't want competition and harassed me by grabbing my ladder and trying to make me fall off, which could have meant death from 15 feet or more. I was able to pick my quota of apples and the farmer was satisfied with my work. However, the next day he came to my place and told me that the illegals told him that they saw me taking his tall ladders and doing sabotage to the irrigation system. He looked around my place and couldn't find the missing ladders but told me that he had to let me go because he couldn't afford to lose any more ladders. However, I told him when I was walking home I saw the same workers with a ladder on their vehicle speeding away.

Perhaps something like the National Youth Administration or some similar organization could be formed to help protect young American farm workers from the criminals that now do the farm work. For hundreds of years Americans did their own farm work on family farms, but agribusiness has brought in millions of criminals to take the jobs of Americans and now wants to make these criminals into citizens after five of years work - at which time they can take any job from an American citizen. If agricultural work paid a decent wage then millions of Americans would do that type of work.

Even a lot of construction work at schools and colleges is done by illegal aliens who get in with low bid contractors. I have personally been denied work by companies that pay their illegal workers under the table to avoid taxes, benefits, workplace safety, and decent wages. A new WPA would have to start by finding what work could be done by American citizens and then use legal means to remove the criminal element that now dominates some industries such as agriculture and construction.

Lawmakers question fast track for farm workers in immigration bill, as tempers flare

"There are an estimated 11 million illegal immigrants in the U.S. And as many as 70 percent of U.S. agricultural workers are in the country illegally."

sounds like you had a bad experience, Its hard to believe that many illegal workers exist, especially from Fox news....

It is the business owners who need to be fined for hireing undocumented workers, they benefit the most

Dear USA Citizen:

Thanks for your comment. While I think you may have a legitimate concern, I think you're directing your complaint too much towards the migrant workers. You wrote, "but agribusiness has brought in millions of criminals to take the jobs of Americans and now wants to make these criminals into citizens after five of years work."

Migrant workers are poor--why attack them and call them criminals? Why not direct your complaint more forcefully towards the companies and individuals who hire them? They're the ones with the power, the money, and the influence to get politicians and law enforcement to look the other way.
