The Associated Press published a list of the "worst jobs"
that Presidential candidates can recall holding—they turn out to be jobs that are nowadays almost always taken by immigrants:
Personal side: Presidential candidates and the jobs they were glad to leave behindThe Associated Press asked major presidential candidates a series of questions about their personal tastes, traits and backgrounds. Today`s question first in a series and their answers:What was your worst job?
DEMOCRATS:New York Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton: ``Sliming fish in a fish cannery in Valdez, Alaska.``Former North Carolina Sen. John Edwards: Textile mill. ``I cleaned out overhead in the weave room, which is where all the crap goes. And I`d be up there climbing around, knocking the stuff down. And it would go down on the looms. The weavers would be, uh, not happy with me for that.``Illinois Sen. Barack Obama: Scooping ice cream at a Baskin-Robbins and eating too much of it.New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson: Landscaping, while playing baseball on Cape Cod in 1967. ``The pay was terrible. I remember it was backbreaking work.``
Obama`s "worst job"
emphasizes how easy he had it growing up—that`s why Steve Sailer called him the "preppie from paradise."
As for Richardson`s jobs, landscaper, baseball player
, and any summer job on Cape Cod
are all jobs that Americans "won`t do"
or rather, can`t have because immigrants are doing them cheaper.
