  1. NEWS • Local News Written by Yunisa DELGADO-FLORES • June 4th, 2022 - 08:59AM Beluga business proprietor builds Union in effort to help Eurasian migrants Local business leader Fyodor Zharkov, owner of Beluga and Ushero, aims to help Eurasian migrants by launching a union to offer job-security. Ushero, a staple of the Rockford fashion district; a business beneath the EIWU network - Yunisa Delgado Flores, June 4th 2022. Each and every year, thousands of immigrants enter Los Santos County. Those who immigrate to the US, and those who move to San Andreas, find the process hard, confusing and stressful. Many migrants who immigrate initially struggle with English, and many are seen as easy targets for exploitation through underpaying and overworking employers. Migrants may also find themselves struggling to settle, where a lack of a community may make those who recently migrated feel isolated and alone. There are many organizations in Los Santos County to assist recent migrants both in fostering a sense of community as well as offering employment, housing, legal and translation services. The Suey Sing Association, for instance, offers a wide range of assistance to those hailing from Asia, including financial support, translation services, and offering affordable housing in a notoriously expensive market. Fyodor Zharkov, the proprietor of both the Vespucci restaurant Beluga and the Rockford-based fashion brand Ushero, decided to launch the Eurasian Independent Workers Union (EIWU) to assist those coming into the country from the Eurasia region. He agreed to an interview with the Daily News' Yunisa Delgado-Flores. “I've worked with Russians, Georgians, Armenians, Lithuanians, I know how comfortable they are when they're dealing with someone speaking their language, having a similar mindset and culture. That's why my Union is mostly targeting the Eurasian workers, because we've came to that belief that they're capable of working together in a fantastic harmony.” Fyodor Zharkov, like many of those who find themselves in Los Santos, found struggle. Initially a violinist from back in Saint Petersburg, Russia, he made little performing in the many bars and restaurants across Los Santos. However, due to the small pay earned in music, he shifted his career into working in Beluga. “It has a different owner back in times, I accepted to be a waiter there, taking care of the kitchen sometimes. Even tending the bar when it was needed. I started at the same restaurant I own now.”, Zharkov shared in an interview with the Daily’s Yunisa Delgado Flores. “As a usual worker, who has nothing to lose, except for an ill daughter back home, and a wife who's working three jobs to keep her safe. I worked for years, hard works. Some days I was just basically sleeping at my car, but It didn't take too long for me to get myself a place, and slowly building up my own life. I kept sending money back home, every week.” Beluga, 'the Russian heart of Vespucci'. The EUWI founder's start. - Yunisa Delgado Flores, June 4th 2022. Los Santos County is the home for a large amount of migrants hailing from the Eurasian region; the space around the debated border between Europe and Asian. These countries often include, but aren’t limited to, Russia, Ukraine, Moldova, Belarus, Azerbaijan, Uzbekistan, Georgia and Afghanistan. As of right now, according to the EIWU website, acts as a middle-man between businesses and Eurasian employers. It provides American and Eurasian-migrants with a job-seeking service that allows them to find safe and steady employment. Immigrants, undocumented or otherwise, often face issues in employment such as suppressed and late wages, cruel and unsafe working conditions, and work-place discrimination. Many migrants who immigrate through temporary work visas often find themselves indebted by predatory recruitment fees, and then subject to cruel and exploitative policies once within the US, according to a report on the relationship between recruitment agencies and human trafficking by the UN Office on Drugs and Crime. In the report, it reported that “In the United States, there were reports of temporary migrant workers who had to accept whatever living and working conditions were offered to them for fear that loss of employment would result in undocumented status and possible deportation. In addition, millions of undocumented foreign workers are estimated to work in the United States, many of whom incur significant debt in order to pay smugglers or coverrecruitment fees” The EIWU and its founder. Fyodor Zharkov, claims to prevent this. The union works by consulting local businesses about the need for employees, and linking them with their network of jobseekers. He noted how some employers use their status to coerce migrants to commit criminal acts and get involved in organized crime. “If you don't have any plan or direction, you'll end probably somewhere wrong, somewhere you'd regret. I've had a lot of friends who later got involved in criminal activities and regretted it later. “If you wanna build a house, you wanna make sure you'll build it strong against any flood.” According to Mr. Zharkov, the union, over the past few months of its operations, it currently has garnered employment for around 100 people. The union also provides a basic medical insurance for its members, with plans to expand it further. Comments are enabled: Username: Comment:
  2. NEWS • Local News Written by Yunisa DELGADO-FLORES • May 21st, 2022 - 4:55PM Snacks and smiles, charity food-drive raises $53,000 DELBURRITO, a Mexican-themed food truck, made it's debut in LS with a food-drive for the hungry and homeless, raising $53,000 for a local homeless shelter. The food drive and the city's residents, where a total of $53,000 dollars was raised - Courtesy of DESBURRITO Earlier last week, the people of Los Santos County got together for three things; to enjoy Mexican food, listen to good music, and to raise an outstanding $53,000 for a local homeless shelter. A local food truck named DESBURRITO opened its hatch earlier this week with the sole intention to provide food to the local homeless population. Carmen, the owner and current CEO of DESBURRITO, shared with us. "I got the truck second hand from Galaxy Customs (a local vehicle dealership), and it came with a bunch of stock.", shared Carmen in a web-interview. "Stuff that I knew that we ain't gonna use because I got my own ideas for a menu. ... There's too much food here to eat anyway. "Instead of 'cheaping out' and selling it, I thought it'd be nicer to give to away to people who needed it most." Lucas Whyte, a friend of Carmen's and a volunteer for DESBURRITO for the day, recounts how Carmen introduced the idea. "Carmen has been working on a business idea for some time now, and wished to celebrate the state granting her the business licence. She contacted myself, and others, speaking of the homeless, and how she wished she could do something to aid them "She suggested we use the current stock, truck and a few smiles, to an area near downtown and offer the food as a single, free meal. Burrito, drink and a donut. The meal also came with a coupon for another free meal once the business was fully operational. "I didn't take much convincing, the idea was thoughtful and kind." One of the many so-called 'homeless cities' hidden within Los Santos, located in Textile City beneath the San Andreas Avenue bridge - Alan Kim, May 21st 2022 From an independent study funded by the Los Santos Mission, a charity who offers assistance in shelter and rehabilitation to the city's homeless population, 66,468 of the county's residents could have been classed as homeless in 2020, 48,041 of being without sufficient access to shelter. A 2019 census shows how the highest concentration of the homeless population resides in Skid Row. Skid Row's population at the time sat around 4700 residents, where 2700 of which were permanently living on the streets; 55% of it's population. According to the state census back in 2016, around 17% of Los Santos' residents are living beneath the poverty line. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development defines the federal poverty line for a single person as $12,880 as of 2021. A single person earning $24,850 is classed as someone with an Extremely Low Income Level. Carmen from DESBURRITO discussed her ideas in how she plans to assist those beneath the poverty line. "The dinero is going to help [us] to do more in the future. We also [are] gonna eventually have cards for the homeless that they can use to get a free drink and snack from us." "We wanna make a difference." From inside the truck, founder and CEO Carmen with their friend 'Theo' serving food to those in need - Courtesy of Carmen The food drive initially was slow, claimed Carmen, and those that were showing weren't homeless nor those in need. "We were giving away free food. It instead turned into people coming by and donating for their food." "We raised $53,000, which is loco!" Lukas added his thoughts on the turn-out to the food drive, stating his shock and awe of how the people of Los Santos came together. "The amount raised in a single, on the spur event was amazing, I don't think anyone that arrived to help thought we'd walk away with such a large value to give to the charity. "It went further than most, if not every ones hopes and expectations" The drive saw local celebrities and influencers come to support the event. Two of which were rising rap-stars from Los Santos County, William "Drillbill" Duff and his friend "Monty". "A lot of celebs would probably think that doing that with is us beneath them, but he [is] super grounded.", Carmen said in regards to Drillbill's attendance. Drillbill, when questioned about how Carmen introduced the idea to him, said that she was "Basically like 'hey, my company DESBURRITO doing this charity event for the homeless, and just the locals in the area' so I was like... that's a good thing she's doing. "I actually gave her a nickname "Santa Carmen" cause she always helping people." The plan for the money is for it to be split, with the larger share going towards assisting the local homeless population, while the smaller portion will be used to cover operational costs and to fund future drives. "Any dinero we keep will be reinvested into DESBURRITO and used to do more free food drives.", Carmen said in regards to the portion of the cash she intends to invest in her company. Carmen from DESBURRITO was unable to give an exact figure as to the amount. Once one is provided, an editor's note shall be issued. The date of the next DESBURRITO charity food drive is currently unknown. According to Lukas, Carmen raised the idea of making the food-drive "a bi-weekly or weekly thing", however if this schedule is in place or not is currently unknown. When asked, Drillbill expressed that he would attend future events if his schedule permitted. "If my crazy schedule allows me? Yeah, of course I'll be there to show my support." His schedule includes the release of a music video today, a performance at the Split Sides Comedy Club on West Vinewood this June, and an upcoming tour that is currently being planned. Carmen urged people to check their Facebrowser page for future updates regarding food drives and events. Comments are enabled: Username: Comment:

  6. We Give The Second Chance The San Andreas Homeless Relief Fund is currently seeking generous donations to aid in reduction of the high levels of homelessness in the State of San Andreas. As statistics have shown, many Americans have either lost their homes due to natural disasters, fires or even had their homes reclaimed by the bank. As a result, many adults and even young children who have been abandoned from their parents are suffering and fighting to survive in the cold, lonely and harsh streets. The (SAHRF) which is being handled by the renowned George Ferri Foundation is working earnestly to get our fellow Americans off the streets and placed in proper homing facilities. Preventative measures are also being explored and exercised by The George Ferri Foundation by assisting individuals to stay in their current accommodation, finding new places of residence, disaster relief housing, and even giving away vehicles from his automotive dealership to help homeless people find easy transportation. This has greatly increased their odds for employment. The San Andreas Home Relief Fund, privately owned and managed needs your help and generous donations to see this cause succeed and slow the growth of homelessness and suffering, regardless of gender, sexuality or race. The San Andreas Home Relief Fund seeks to gather resources from private entities, government grants and good Samaritans to distribute wealth to those who need it the most - the homeless. "Those suffering need to be given attention, a voice and most importantly resources to overcome the burdens that modern society forces on them." - George Ferri Donations can be made by clicking the button below.
