This is what happens when your business is based on paying illegals less than minimum wage under the table.

[–] Fambida 2 points 20 points (+22|-2) ago 

Or when you live in a town that jacks the minimum wage to unsustainable levels.

The entire American food system is based on this.

Agriculture, food processing, restaurants...

It’s modern day slavery

[–] Durm 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

And needing to have slave like leverage over them.

Great comment.

Maybe they would find cooks if they provided better pay and better hours. Being a chef or line cook has become a travesty of a job, something you only do if you love the trade enough to exploit yourself, or if you can find nothing better.

[–] bitbob 0 points 4 points (+4|-0) ago 

True enough, it's hard work for little pay.

[–] Skyrock 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

The only good thing about it is that you can always get a job virtually everywhere. Line cooks might be the last people who can still just walk into a business and get hired right on the spot.

"qualified" means mexican because anyone else cooking one would be "cultural appropriation".

[–] Lord_Mari 0 points 6 points (+6|-0) ago  (edited ago)

Kinda want to say cultural appropriation at mestizos working at Asian restaurants just to troll leftists.

[–] o0shad0o 0 points 4 points (+4|-0) ago  (edited ago)

Actually I bet it means "speaks spanish", because that's all the rest of the kitchen staff understands.

Edit: Also "works for less than minimum wage".

Taco's are American, like burritos, chimichangas and nachos.

Only liberals could look at 100% employment as a bad thing. Basically now the employers have to compete to get people to work for them, which I thought was the libtard dream, and libs have a problem with that.

A lot of people I know only care about low cost onto them, but high pay for themselves. Essentially, liberals are just your run of the mill greedy fucks. This is why some of the stingiest businesses i have come to see are mostly liberal, to the point they fucking use volunteers over paid labor

[–] Skyrock 1 points -1 points (+0|-1) ago 

Anyone who tells you different than wanting high pay + low cost is either lying through their teeth, or presenting you a sob story to get their hand into your pocket.

[–] NoisyCricket 0 points 4 points (+4|-0) ago 

Exactly. We've all been so conditioned to believe that employers should set the terms of compensation that people are confused when it becomes an employee's market. This is good. This increases wages. Eventually the market settles at what is fair for the job versus people applying for the work. This is a sign of a healthy economy. An economy is unhealthy when employers are the only party who ever get to dictate terms and conditions of compensation. Which had become the status quo.

[–] belrial 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

FWIW I agree. Prior to that the unions had enough stroke that they dictated terms andit was unhealthy on the employee’s side

The lust for power drives people insane. Case in point: NFL players willing to destroy their very careers.

[–] fellowkikepeople 0 points 10 points (+10|-0) ago 

lol @ 'qualified'

[–] goatsandbros 0 points 12 points (+12|-0) ago  (edited ago)

My thoughts exactly. They fry up meat, then throw it on bread that itself was too lazy to rise.

[–] fhaqyu 0 points 9 points (+9|-0) ago 

i found a great trick to shut the fucking liberal bitches up.

when they claim, "who is going to clean your offices or do your lawnwork?" I always reply with, "is that all you think immigrants are good for? are they only there to clean your house or keep your lawn for you?"

they tend to get pretty damn upset when they realize how racist they really are.

[–] REEEEEapWhatYouSow 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago 

I always reply with "me, i'm going to do it". I clean my work area, i clean my home area, this whole white privilege thing really skipped by me and everyone i've ever met.

[–] Iblis1 0 points 7 points (+7|-0) ago 

im mexican. paying enough and ill make tacos, or better yet supervise non-mexicans and stamp the tacos "mexican approved"

[–] Computergeek01 0 points 6 points (+6|-0) ago  (edited ago)

Wow, what a self righteous moron: https://www.nbcsandiego.com/news/local/Tacos-El-Gordo-Forced-to-Close-One-Location-Due-to-Lack-of-Staff-489177811.html

"There are not many applications coming in," said Ricardo Cervantes, a taquero at Tacos El Gordo. "But the ones that have been applying aren't qualified. This is the big leagues."

Get over yourself, you hipster-ass wannabe sandwich artist. No one buys taco's and expects "quality". It's a fucking leaf of bread with "fixin's" thrown on top. Delicious? Yes, but it's not a god damn wedding cake.

[–] bagano1 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

He's full of shit. He's not a hipster either, they hire FOB Mexicans at those places. Everything Tacos El Gordo does is to get attention. They deliberately run the place like shit to make people wait in line so the place seems popular. But like I said, this was at their strip location, not sure how the other ones are.
