How sad that large corporations such as Coca-Cola, McDonald's and Tyson Foods feel the need to bring more low skilled workers into the United States. Perhaps they should look right here in the country that made them large corporations in the first place. I'm sure there are thousands of unemployed citizens who need and deserve to work for a decent wage and benefits. I'm sure that a decent wage and benefits is just what they don't want to pay these low-skilled immigrants.

This urge for softer immigration laws would make some kind of sense but what they are trying to sell is more corporate greed.

They say Americans are fat and lazy, and they may be right! Let's prove them wrong. Let us all go on diets first. We'll stop going to McDonalds. No more "chicken nuggets and say Pepsi, please!" Our exercise can be walking away from companies that no longer want to support the country that made them famous.
