John Sherwood wrote a review of this book on DCSki during the Fall of 2002. It is available at:
John provided some of his own thoughts in the review.
If you look in many major cities (and quite a few smaller ones) the hispanic population is frequently taking lower paying jobs and long hours. The insdustries that are hiring them (including the ski industry) need workers that are willing to work these jobs. Therefore, this population is going where the work is.
I come from the restaurant industry and we hired many of these employees. However, we did not feel that we were taking advantage of these employees. Continuously, we would develop these employees to advance into chef or management positions, sponser them to become legal citizens, pay for "English as a 2nd language" classes, etc.
I cannot speak for the ski industry but I hope that they are working on doing the same thing.
So did I. I grew up on a farm, picking tobacco. I went to college and did whatever I needed to do, especially after quitting college. I washed dishes, busboy, you name it. And yes, I'm doing fine also.
People talk about unemployment in this country and our unemployment is high. The unemployment is in factory jobs, manufacturing, and even high tech. Some of these positions are highly skilled, some are not. All are positions that many of the workers would rather get unemployment than go find other jobs they consider "beneath" them. The work ethic of the 50's is no longer around (Oh my god I'm starting to sound like my father, and I'm only 34).
Anyway, as far as ski resorts, I search of rsn and google did not turn up any ski resorts in Mexico.
