The word, 'boycott' comes from a harsh Irish land-owner named Boycott who was 'boycotted' by his servants and agricultural workers. This eventually worked. However, it would not work here because the LibLabCon helps the corporations by bringing in people from the third world to work for third world wages.
Now They Want to Take Away the 8-Hour Day and 40-Hour Week

Republicans are trying to pass an "alternative" to overtime pay. This is really about taking away the eight-hour workday and 40-hour workweek. Will weekends be next? What about an "alternative" to paying workers at all?
House Republicans are pushing a bill that takes away extra pay for overtime, substituting "comp" time instead. The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) of 1938 is the law that brought us the eight-hour workday and the 40-hour workweek. This law does not prohibit employers from requiring workers to work over 40 hours. Instead, it gives employers an incentive to instead pay extra or hire more people, and gives employees a premium if they do have to work longer. (Note that this is also the law that brought us a minimum wage and outlawed child labor.)
There is proof that overtime pay works: workers like domestic workers and agricultural workers - jobs not covered by the FLSA - are twice as likely to have to work more than 40 hours in a week. And even with this law, Americans already work more hours than in almost any other industrialized country.
The Bill - No Guarantees
The House will be voting on H.R. 1406, The Working Families Flexibility Act, which lets employers offer "comp time" instead of overtime pay. The problem is that employers will pressure workers to take comp time instead of overtime, which reduces paychecks and gets rid of the incentive to hire more people. Later, the employees will be pressured to not take that comp time, or will have to be "on call," etcetera. ...................(more)

In my area I notice they are doing home and commercial construction, lawn care, fish cannery work on our coast, and work inside meat processing plants. Of course they are heavily employed in agricultural jobs. They are not just taking farm worker jobs. I forgot, we have a huge gang problem they also are heavily involved with.
He works for a landscaping company. His boss says that they are agricultural and will not pay him overtime. I do not think that this job is really agricultural, my husband does all sorts of thinks: plants flowers and trees, builds waterfalls, builds rock walls solely for cosmetic reasons, just pretty much anything that involves making a yard beautiful. His boss says that because he has straw in his building then he doesn't have to pay overtime. All of my research does say that agricultural workers are exempt from overtime, my question really I guess is what constitutes an agricultural worker?

I'm writing a story set in Germany and I need to know what jobs/medical conditions would have kept a man in the 18-35 year range from be drafted into the war. Also, since WW1 began on June 28th 1914, were men who were drafted shipped right off to war immediately or was there a period of months until they were? Just please give me the 411 on all of this please!

I live in bham and i hardly ever see Polish people. Is it because they are white and they just quickly assimilate? Is that why I don't notice them as much as Asians and Blacks. Or is it because most of them are agricultural workers. Even when I go to London, they are never in large groups. I find it hard to believe that Polish is the second most spoken language in the UK, after English of course.
