Put Up or Shut Up

The classic response to the tired "Im-me-gints is stealin' all our jobs" line has always been "No, they're mostly taking jobs no one wants."

Well, to test this theory and highlight the plight of farmworkers in America, the UFW has launched the website Take Our Jobs, where you can sign up to take over the job of an immigrant farm laborer.

According to UFW prez Arturo Rodríguez, only 3 people have thus far taken up the offer, though Stephen Colbert last night pledged to join the ranks.

So if you're unemployed and blaming immigrants instead of the real culprits, go ahead and get yourself a job...
