    Mexican Guest Workers, Laid Off, Want BP’s Help

    NEW ORLEANS — Soon after the oil from the Deepwater Horizon began gushing into the Gulf of Mexico, business at the Ramada Plaza Beach Resort in Fort Walton Beach, Fla., dried up — and so did the jobs of five Mexican housekeepers who were guest workers at the hotel under contracts guaranteeing them work until Nov. 1.

    “On June 30, they told us our jobs were over, and that we had to leave our housing and go back to Mexico,

    Can't these legal guest workers apply to Kenneth Feinberg, the "Oil Spill Compensation Fund" Czar as all others have been advised to do? Perhaps this organization and the NYT could advise them that they have the same right as anyone else to apply directly to Mr. Feinberg and that he has the power to dispense compensation directly whenever merited.

    File a claim and get IN LINE. I know the second part is difficult for "Guest" workers. At least they were legal.

    LOL...that is a good one...pay them when they cross back over the border. Not to be rude but one way of knowing they will not overstay as so many of them do.

    What! No American citizens want to work in hotels! Why are these hotels allowed to bring in H-2B visa workers when we have 14 million Americans out of work in this country?

    Indeed, guest workers are in a tenuous position, usually living in labor camps or other housing run by their employers, with little connection to the surrounding community, and little understanding of their legal rights
