If they don't work Monday, no need to worry about working Tues or Wed or Thurs or Fri......

They are going about it all wrong, IMHO. All the protest will do is stir the anti-immigration contingent up even more - then they really will have to worry about being deported.

I doubt that...there is a very serious shortage of workers this year....some pay has gone to $13/hr for workers in kitchens in resturants.
