With all the talk about immigrants and the work force my grandkids asked me if they would have to do the jobs that no one else wanted to do just because they were Hispanic. Even though my wife and I are not, we have helped our son and their mother raise their children quite a bit and a lot of times their questions come back to me. I explained to my grandkids that even though they were of Hispanic descent that didn't mean they had to do the jobs nobody else wanted to do. I told them to keep their grades up and pay attention to what was happening in our world. If they did well in school and then wanted to go to college they could or they could learn a trade and become a skilled tradesman, that way they wouldn't have to work in the fields or wash dishes or work a minimum wage job that they hated. Just because they were not white didn't mean they were destined to work in a job that no white person wanted to do. All my grandkids had to do was learn and follow their interest and then they could find a job they liked or even start their own business and be their own boss.
