    Apparently you are unaware of the difference in treatment of illegals rounded up at say a Tyson Chicken and how the owners, managers, and executives are treated when illegals are rounded up at their factories. Get educated and it will all make sense.

    1 st offense- No jail time, BUT they lose their business license for 6 months...

    2nd offense, automatic 6 months in jail- NO EXCEPTIONS, LOSE BUSINESS.FOR 1 year so your down and out for a year and a half, so your business.is pretty much down the crapper for a very long time..

    If employers actually paid.a living wage, there would be no.need for.welfare...

    As long as folks.are making 7.25 an hour there will be massive amounts of people on welfare, the cost of living goes up and wages stagnate, figure it out genius..

    As long as the huge income inequality gap exists there will be huge amounts of folks signing up for welfare, and food stamps too, this may come as.a shock to you but poor people have to eat too...

    If employers couldn't hire illegals then they would have to make the wage attractive enough to hire Americans.Contrary to popular belief many people on welfare work. If we were to be idiotic enough to listen to those whose lips are firmly planted on the cocks of businesses by getting rid of minimum wage there would still have people on welfare.

But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Reading comprehension, it's a wonderful thing.

    We pay $8 for most starting employees. The two weeks that most of the employees worked that turned out to be illegal (via the audit) calculate out as such: $8 x40 hours (average) = $320 x 2 weeks = $640. When the penalty averaged $1500 per worker, yeah, I'd say the fines were pretty stiff.

    I even did the math for you.

    1,500 comes out to slightly more than a full months wages for a someone making 8$ an hour working full time. So 1,500 is not stiff,especially if a year would have passed by.

    Luckily you all got caught only after a few weeks.Many other scum who hire illegals do not get caught so soon or even at all. $1,500 is still a measly fine for hiring illegals.

    We only got caught after a few weeks....???? Where the hell did you get that from?

    You obviously haven't retained a single thing I've posted, so I'm not going to bother correcting your delusion.
