The Permanent Underclass
|The Permanent Underclass|
I have a couple of friends who told me something pretty shocking. I asked the question why so many hire Mexican workers in their business. Both of them said the same thing. They both threw away this notion that Mexicans are hard working. It is not true. Mexicans do not work harder than anyone else. I have quoted the statistical ratio of working illegal aliens to illegal aliens who are on public assistance. Both of my friends volunteered this as well. The main reason, they said, that businesses hire Mexicans, is that they can pay them, en mass, below minimum wage.
Back in the Kitchen
So my one friend is a sous-chef. He is the second in command of the kitchen, for those who do not know what a sous-chef is. The chef over him is the head chef. He blatantly told me he is the only white person in the entire kitchen. All the rest of the kitchen staff are all illegal aliens and Mexican. Not only are they all working at all the positions of the kitchen under sous-chef, but they are all paid below minimum wage.
Minimum wage in Nevada is $7.25 / hr with health insurance benefits provided by employer and received by employee, or $8.25 / hr with no health insurance benefits provided by employer. That means from the dishwasher on up, they all make minimum wage.
1. The chef is the person in charge of the kitchen. In large establishments this person has the title of executive chef. The executive chef is a manager who is responsible for all aspects of food production, including menu planning, purchasing, costing, and planning work schedules.
$40,000.00 – $78,000.00
2. The sous-chef (soo schef) is directly in charge of production. Because the executive chef’s responsibilities require spending a great deal of time in the office, the sous chef takes command of the actual production and the minute-by-minute supervision of the staff.
Both the sous chef and executive chef have had many years of experience in all stations of the kitchen.
$31,000.00 – $54,000.00
3. The station chefs or chefs de partie are in charge of particular areas of production. The following are the most important station chefs:
$10.00 / hr – $13.00 / hr or $27,000 / yr
a) The sauce chef or saucier (so-see-ay) prepares sauces, stews, and hot hors d’oeuvres, and sautés foods to order. This is usually the highest position of all the stations.
b) The fish cook or poissonier (pwah-so-nyay) prepares fish dishes. (This station may be handled by the saucier in some kitchens.)
c) The vegetable cook or entremetier (awn-truh-met-yay) prepares vegetables, soups, starches, and eggs. Large kitchens may divide these duties among the vegetable cook, the fry cook, and the soup cook.
d) The roast cook or rotisseur (ro-tee-sur) prepares roasted and braised meats and their gravies and broils meats and other items to order. A large kitchen may have a separate broiler cook or grillardin (gree-ar-dan) to handle the broiled items. The broiler cook may also prepare deep-fried meats and fish.
e) The pantry chef or garde manger (gard-mawn-zhay) is responsible for cold foods, including salads and dressings, patés, cold hors d’oeuvres, and buffet items.
f) The pastry chef or patissier (pa-tees-syay) prepares pastries and desserts.
g) The relief cook, swing cook, or tournant (toor-nawn) replaces other station heads.
Minimum wage annual take home is $15,000.00 / yr
So just from that short list there of kitchen positions, in case you did not know, we see that Mexicans are getting completely driven into the ground. It is not a case of Mexicans taking jobs that other people don’t want to do, it is a case of illegal aliens being marginalized to the point of slavery. Let’s see those salaries again:
- Chef [ head chef ] – $40,000.00 – $78,000.00
- Sous-chef – $31,000.00 – $54,000.00
- Station chef – $10.00 / hr – $13.00 / hr or $27,000.00 / yr
- minimum wage yearly – $15,000.00 / yr
So they are making twice if not four times the profit by hiring a minimum wage Mexican, instead of a bonifide citizen. And not only that, most of the Mexicans are illegal aliens and therefore are paid below minimum wage. It is this that my sous-chef friend told, that the company really likes.
As if this one restaurant were not enough to make your stomach turn, he told me that he works for a chain restaurant. He said, all the restaurants in his chain make it a practice of hiring illegal aliens and paying them below minimum wage.
But, hold on to your horses! Not only does he work for a chain, but the chain is owned by a corporation. That corporation owns many restaurant chains. And, he said, all of the chains make it this practice of hiring illegal aliens and paying them below minimum wage. How does he know? As a sous-chef he is required to attend corporate meetings where all the chains get together. He does not do the hiring, and sadly [ to his great disappointment ] he does not do the firing neither.
The corporation clears around $2 – $6 billion dollars per chain they own yearly. Many of you reading this would probably think that these restaurants are not reputable. You could not be more mistaken. These restaurants range from $6.00 / entree all the way up to $40,00 / entree, on up. None of the chains are greasy spoon restaurants. So stop trying to console yourself that you are not supporting this travesty in modern day slavery.
But wait, there’s more
The Casino Makes too Much to Pay for Labor
As if the above story weren’t bad enough, my second friend threw me for a loop. He is the head of security at one of the Casinos in Las Vegas. To the untrained eye, there are a lot of Casinos in Las Vegas. Sadly, they are all owned by around 3 corporations. So the Las Vegas strip, which has dozens of huge casinos, are only owned by maybe 3 corporations.
So my friend, head of security, is able to go from property to property, at will. He doesn’t really work for one particular casino. He said that nearly every illegal alien in the casino works for below minimum wage. But, wait, I’m sure you think I am being harsh in calling them illegal. But, no, I am speaking facts. He said the casino, or more appropriately, the corporations, under incentive from the U.S. government, takes buses down into Mexico and picks up loads of Mexicans, bring them here and pay them below minimum wage to work in their casinos. The law, as written, seemed like it had the best intention, but the corporations took it at its word and are using it in the strictest interpretation of the law. The government hesitates to repeal the law because it is the best thing we have, humanitarian wise, but is being abused to the fullest letter of the law. However, knowing what I know about the government, their palms are getting heavily greased, to keep this law in play.
- Americans are not lazy
- worthless jobs are not being taken by illegal aliens
- a huge percentage of the population is working, under the table, for under minimum wage for very decent jobs
- a complete second class is being formulated by these corporations
If you are blind to what is going on, I hope this article opened your damned eyes. Not only are these jobs being taken by illegal aliens, they are done at the request and under the thumb of the U.S. government. The corporations want your job too. This economic depression was not an accident. Upwards of 20% of the population is unemployed, 35% in the Black population. When this fiasco is over, I guarantee you that your same job will be offered back to you, at half the salary you had before.
This fiasco will occur over and over till we have a complete divestiture of the middle class and a total divide of the upper and lower classes. Can you imagine that the position of an experienced pastry chef earns only minimum wage? It’s supposed to be $30,000 – $40,000 a year, depending on where you are. Yet I have solid proof these companies are paying someone $15,000 a year already. Right now!
This is not a conspiracy theory, these are facts. You are paying top dollar for something and the company isn’t even hiring a regular American worker at a decent wage. You are contributing to this.
And, no, paying someone minimum wage when they should be making $40,000 is not acceptable. That $25,000 is lost on the economy. If you don’t have the economic sense to see this, go learn some. You can’t bleed the very body you live in. People assume that the shareholders are making out like bandits. But, in the long run they’ll be just as broke because they are creating a nation of paupers. It’s stupid.
