So like I said, Monday is "Gringo de Mayo". You know, the big walkout/boycott/vacation day, etc.
What a bunch of bullshit.
But i've heard of several noteworthy things going on here in my town.
First of all, any employer with any sense has stated that anyone not showing up to work for their regularly scheduled shift on Monday will be terminated with no possibility of rehire. I say good for them. I could tolerate an adjustment to the policy to allow exceptions for someone with a doctor's note, but other than that, you would almost have to show me your casket with you in it.
Another thing happening here is workers at construction sites have been told by their mexican coworkers that if they show up for work Monday, they're dead. What sort of shit is that? Shit-can them on the spot. Or even the next day.
Rumor also has it there are going to be an additional 1000-1700 I.N.S. agents in town. Oh no, they won't be rousting at the rally, they'll be waiting when the ralliers leave. Then they'll get the shakedown. I love it! You have no proof of citizenship at that time, you get deported.
I would rather see them getting it on the way TO the rally. Otherwise, they'll have already been able to speak their miind, throw their tantrum and have their place in the limelight.
What this boils down to is a bunch of insolent cry-babies that need a fucking wake-up call. Protest all you want. But do it on your own time, and don't even think about interfering with my life or you will get shot.
Then get the fuck out of here.
