Oftentimes foreign workers leave their country deep in debt in raising money needed to cover for exorbitant placement and other fees.

Union dumps stealth neo-Nazi school board candidate (tags)

Joe Turner, a stealth neo-Nazi candidate for the San Bernardino Unified City School District, was dumped last night by Chapter 183 of the California School Employees Association after his links to white supremacist groups were revealed. In the below photograph, Turner is shown talking with neo-Nazi skinheads at the anti-day laborer protest in Laguna Beach in July 2005. The skinhead to his immediate left wearing a cowboy hat is holding up a sign that Turner brought to the demonstration. Many people can attest to the fact that Turner and other SOS members protested along with neo-Nazis for several hours that day.

Today's OTHER Gay Rights Defeat (tags)

The Murrieta school board voted, 3-2, to reject a proposed policy banning bullying and harassment of students "respect to ethnic group, religion, gender, sexual orientation, color, race, national origin and physical or mental disability or the perception of one or more of such characteristics." Ironically, the real danger here will not actually be borne primarily by the gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgendered teenagers who are so despised by these Christian [sic] zealots. There are far, far more black, Latino, Asian, Native, Jewish, Muslim, atheist, Buddhist, Mormon, immigrant, and disabled kids in the Murrieta school district than there are LGBT children, and ALL of those kids are at risk from a school board which is willing to condone harassment as long as some of that harassment is directed at gays.
