El Paso County ‘pintos’ body-bagging COVID victims from the cannery at Doña Ana, New Mexico.
After the break, Pedro Miguel lays it out for all to read…
A registered nurse filling out a contract to work at a higher income sector hospital, NARRATOR asks how much of the $10,000 offered by medical centers goes to the nurses’ direct deposit, and how much goes to the contracting company, and while you think about that, how much is the actual hourly wage paid to the prison syndicate for that ‘pinto’ bagging ‘chucos and chucas’ in El Paso, Texas?
