|Lazy Americans in New York refuse to work.|
Fat and Lazy - Unemployed New Yorkers refuse to answer want ads for Belmont Park . . . Latino workers are imported.
It's a dirty job - and no one in New York wants to do it.
Or so say the stable owners at Belmont Park, who are battling the feds for the right to import foreign workers to take care of their Thoroughbreds, says the New York Daily News.
Readers of site know this is nothing new. See our article THE FEDERALIST - "SHOCK: Americans are lazy bastards."
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services officials have said nay to the Long Island race track's request for temporary visas to let in nearly 100 grooms, hotwalkers and exercise riders.
The New York Thoroughbred Horsemen's Association has asked a judge to overturn the agency's ruling, claiming the move threatens to wreak havoc on the racing season.
New Yorkers, the association says, have failed to respond to help-wanted ads.
And the stable hands who work at Belmont say they know why.

Belmont Park has to import horse handlers to do a crucial job that New Yorkers refuse to do, say stable owners who are suing the feds on visa policy.
"There are not a whole of people who want to do what we do. You have to wake up at 4 a.m. You have to clean the horses, care for them," said Jose Calderon, 31, who was handling horses at Belmont Park on Sunday.
He said the majority of workers at Belmont are Latinos.
"Without immigrants, this would not work properly," said Calderon, who got into the business at 16. "You really have to love this work."
"There aren't many people like us here," said Wanceslao Gutierrez, 29, a horse trainer.
