Welcome to the Five Towns

(Hat tip: Someone from the Five Towns, who got it from their rabbi.)

Anyways... watch this short cartoon, then write what you think about it in the comments.

My thoughts: I'm going to assume the rav sent it as a reflection of the [wrong-headed] attitudes some people have. My first reaction was "it's not funny, it's sad" - but really, it is funny, because it is so sad. Ugh.

FWIW, I don't have much of a problem with individuals hiring people on their own for a fair price to do work. I *do* have a problem with corporations doing so, and more importantly, I think it is disgusting how some people take advantage of illegal immigrants. Where's your common decency!?
