This is why we need unions!

And the subject line is sarcasm.

This from Fox News.

About 1,000 nonunion workers, mostly Hispanics upset with the recent firing of immigrants for allegedly providing false documents, walked off their jobs at a Smithfield Foods Inc. slaughtering plant, a union spokeswoman said.

Good. Non-union. Fire them too. Then go down to the local unemployment offices and give the jobs to people who want to work.

About 600 workers were found to have unverifiable information. The company fired about 75 people for providing false information, he said.

And they should have been arrested to boot.

Smithfield spokesman Dennis Pittman said the company was only complying with a request from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement "This walkout — which apparently was instigated by the United Food and Commercial Workers Union — is totally unjustified," Pittman said. "If Smithfield were to do what the union is calling for, we would be breaking federal law by knowingly employing undocumented workers. The union should stop trying to pressure Smithfield to break the law."

Agreed. Rule of law must be maintained. If you are not properly documented, no job. Comprende? You go through the proper channels, or you simply do not work. End of story, turn out the lights.

And by the way...if all the able bodied people on welfare would get a damn job, we wouldn't have a need to hire those who stream across the border and rape our nation by violating its laws. Think about that.
