They took our jobs!
18 January 2009 | by (Canada(Montreal,Quebec)) – See all my reviews

Goobacks is a fairly funny episode of South Park.It brings up the issue of immigrant workers taking over jobs once done by Americans due to their low wages.A group of people from the future called the "goobacks", travel to the year 2004 to search for a job.They take all the jobs of the South Park townspeople away and a lot of people are angry at them.The episode has people trying to get the Goobacks go back to their time(or to stop them).Then there are the people who think they should be able to stay and get jobs in South Park.This is a good episode with funny moments and a great one liner(they took our jobs(pronounced jewbs)).
