"The Mexican people are from an agrarian society and are used to working outdoors," he said. "They get some fulfillment from what they do. They are happy with it. And as a result, they do better quality work than the American workers we can hire."
"Americans don't do this type of work, even at $12.50 an hour, even in a recession," said Bachand, vice president and chief operating officer of Carol King Landscape Maintenance Inc. "They don't have the work ethic to go outdoors, get dirty and do this work with pride. Those [Americans] who do take the job see it as a short-term paycheck while looking for something else."
It is interesting to note, that Europeans, in toto, are the source of the majority Agrarian componnents in North America. Not denying the local indigenous production of food-stuffs, but infer that Europeans are incapable or less knowledgeable in this field, is absurd.
As far as working for a wage, especially in Landscaping, what White man would not want to work outside, meet people, and generally stay physically fit in the process?
