A public radio poll last week revealed that 60 percent of Northwesterns believe that illegal immigrants take away jobs from legal immigrants, so it's perfect timing for the United Farm Workers this week to launch their new campaign: Take Our Jobs!

As the UFW says, government stats show that since the late 1990s, at least 50% of the crop workers have not been authorized to work legally in the US. "We are a nation in denial about our food supply," says the campaign website. "Farm workers are ready to welcome citizens and legal residents who wish to replace them in the field, we will use our knowledge and staff to help connect the unemployed with farm employers. Just fill out the form to the right and continue on to the request for job application."

Any individuals interested in a summer of backbreaking work for little pay can sign up for fieldwork job at the Take Our Jobs website. The farm workers union will also be going on the Colbert Report on July 8th to pitch the plan... I really hope Lars Larson or Victoria Taft takes them up on their offer.
