Boycott as Message of Work Ethic?
I understand the illegal immigrants' message to Americans is that they come to this country to work and would love to be treated as any other American citizen. So today there will be a massive boycott of work by Chicanos and their supporters.
This is apparently a means to increase the awareness of the public to their situation and desires. Maybe someone can explain to me how you prove you are immigrating to America for work and adoption of the American ideals when you skip work? Are speeches in Spanish going to provide a message to Americans who largely speak English?
Is this an articulate message? Seems like the French message when they struck for permanent jobs.
