    If they are here illegally, fire them. If they are here legally, don't pay them for the day. Hiring vets is never a bad idea. Definitely have a talk with the employee that no showed.

    Can't provide a Dr excuse you are now unemployed. Then hire a vet. they should have priority anyway.

    Those that didn't show up for work today were probably not stellar employees to begin with.
    I like the idea of dumping them and hiring vets!

    Pretty sure food & service industry is exactly where this so called strike was supposed to have some kind of effect on us, to show their impact on our lives.

    Where did you think the effects might show up? Like, if someone went to the bank to get a loan, it was closed because all the latino bankers were on strike? Or if you wanted to go buy that new pistol you'd been wanting, you couldn't because the gun shops and sporting goods stores were all closed because of this strike? Come on, man.

    We have 2 Latino employees at work and both showed up.
    I heard that construction companies had some issues but that's all I heard.

    Was that yesterday?

    I didn't even notice.

    I don't think I got the message they were trying to send.

    I had no idea until I saw it on the news last night.

    I wonder how may of the businesses that were affected were in Latino communities with primarily Latino customers.

    I'm not sure what their message was either but if it was to prove that we can deport them without causing disruptions in our daily lives, they succeeded.

    And if all the black people strike, who will shine your shoes or make you some fried chicken?
    Your backpedal paints an even clearer picture.

    For your info, they certainly are. They're a subgroup of Latins, named as such based on their sex.

    Race is the classification of humans into groups based on physical traits, ancestry, genetics or social relations, or the relations between them.

    La·ti·na
    ləˈtēnə/
    noun
    NORTH AMERICAN
    plural noun: Latinas
    1. (in North America) a woman or girl of Latin American origin or descent.

    rac·ism
    ˈrāˌsizəm/
    noun
    1. prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against someone of a different race based on the belief that one's own race is superior.

    Most of them here legally want the others gone, so they probably won't strike.
