We must live in very different parts of the country. I can't think of many employers around here who would hire an immigrant middle aged man over a native English speaking local boy for a starting position.

Most immigrants I see are working in meat packing or in manufacturing plants around here. I don't remember any 16 year olds getting those jobs 30 years ago either. The only people I see losing jobs in those cases are people aged 20+.

My first job was the dreaded minimum wage Walmart type of job. I don't see that position or any customer facing job flooded with middle aged immigrant men.

What type of traditional starting jobs that kids only got decades ago are you referring to?

Starter jobs here are fast food service jobs, retail and for the boys lumber yards, landscaping, etc. I live in a big city, so most of the shitty service jobs are middle age Indian/Filipino women. Same for the lumber and landscaping jobs.

Except for the in the rich suburbs. West Vancouver - the most expensive real estate in Canada - is staffed almost exclusively by high school and college kids. Its like a bizzaro world. Almost like wealthy parents understand the importance of hard work at young ages.

RE: Anti-Boomer Sentiment: Identity Politics
Interesting. Basic idea is that a Boomer is just what a Millennial would be during good times.




“That sig BTW is a very asinine anti-family anti-parent quote. You live in a country where 40% of children grow up without a biological father, yet somehow “the greatest burden a child must bear is the unlived life of its parents”? Sorry but this is fruity Boomer nonsense.”
