John Rosenow, Capital Times pimp cheap labor from Mexico

The Capital Times has printed a nice article from dairy farmer John Rosenow. The article has a title that makes me happy. It's called "We're obliged to know the hopes of our employees from Mexico":

My wife, Nettie, and I could not believe what we were seeing. Roberto, our favorite Mexican employee for four years, had sent the money he made back to Mexico to build a bakery. We had no idea he had done that.

That was nice of him. John talks about a program called "Puentes/Bridges" (that's what a "puente" is in Spanish!)

It was the brainchild of Shaun Duvall, a high school Spanish teacher, and Carl Duley, a UW-Extension agent, from Alma. They saw a new phenomenon in Buffalo County of Mexicans working on dairy farms and only speaking Spanish. Puentes was formed to teach us farmers Spanish and to educate us about the culture of our new work force by taking us to Mexico. The program also evolved to include visits to the villages where our workers' families lived.

John goes on to describe how he takes advantage of desperate poor people employs those wonderful Mexicans:

I called a friend who was employing Mexicans. He showed me where to locate a man to work for us. His name was Manuel. He worked 54 days in a row because he did not want a day off. I thought it was too good to be true. He worked like we did. Soon I hired more Mexican workers, and my good American workers began to once again have regular hours and time for vacations.

Why did I suddenly hear "Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah, Zip-A-Dee-Day"? Obviously, comparing cheap third world labor that has few options to slavery is not accurate, but comparing the mindset of today's "liberals" who seek to profit from a bad situation to past mindsets is certainly appropriate. There are more comments on this article here.

Rosenow's article is apparently part of a push by Madison's Capital Times; here's columnist Margaret Krome sounding for all the world like a cheap labor pimp: "Sharing immigrants' lives promotes understanding":

Wisconsin has always grown with the vision and hard work of its immigrants. Usually, there is resistance and fear when new cultures enter the state.

Of course, some of those whose only interest is the bottom line are able to disguise their real agenda beneath a heaping load of "liberalism", white guilt, and a desire to be "tolerant".

In previous CT news, here's more on Joel McNally. And, here's my first impression of that newspaper.

george noory from coast to coast had on one of the head guys for the MM. the fact is the borders mean nothing now as i have said "the deal has been made and the north american union is for real, listen people this nation is dead, the fact is that its always been the goal of our so called leaders to kill our freedom's and make us into mexico and put us up for selling on the open enslavement market, just wait the planned economic collapse is coming at the end of 2007.

the cheap third world rats and the low life rats want you as the "next cheaper labor", and in 5 years you will be that labor, see people you will never fight for freedom and justice and a life without fear so you will live like people live in mexico from day to day and have nothing and your kids will be nothing but little rats, and people you will have it coming.

He worked 54 days in a row because he did not want a day off.

Yes, I'm sure shoveling shit on a dairy farm was love at first sight for Manuel.

Sheesh.

Yes, this describes some, in a nutshell. But not all. Because to have a "real agenda" you have to be devious, which requires intelligence. And I do not think many of the people who pump all of that, e.g. reporters, are really very intelligent.
