Why Life Is Unfair: Exhibit, New Orleans

This story was disheartening:

Day Laborers Are Easy Prey in New Orleans

Whatever you think of immigration, you can’t deny that the Latin American migrants who come to the U.S. are some hard workers. (It’s usually not white dudes up there on the rafters hauling Quikrete bags all day.) I’d say they’re near the top of the list of hardest-working people in the U.S.

New Orleans, meanwhile, may be a charming city with its own weird appeal, but never have I been to a city in the U.S. that shirks work and enjoys laziness as much as NOLA. Now we have these poor guys down there working their hardest to rebuild the city, only to get robbed and killed for their efforts. What is the justice in this?
