Americans rush to fill vacant jobs held by illegals

PHOENIX -- Job hunters turned out in the hundreds to fill recently-vacant positions at Pro's Ranch Market stores, where a federal audit led to the firing of some 300 workers.

"We heard they are firing a lot of illegal people, so we're here to apply," she said.

About 300 of the 1,500 total employees at the six Phoenix supermarkets were let go this week after an Immigration and Customs Enforcement audit found them to be working illegally.

H1-B Visa Holders Replacing American Workers

Educate Yourself About H1-B Visas

The middle class is experiencing a classic communist pincher strategy whereby they are getting squeezed from the top and the bottom. From the top, professional employees with degrees and years of experience are being terminated and replaced with H1-B visa holders from countries like India. Computer programmers, nurses and professional managers are offered severance pay only if the train their replacements. Companies like Microsoft, who claim and lobby Congress because there aren't enough qualified trained workers, laid off thousands in late 2008, only to replace them with H1-B holders.

Thousands of trained workers and college graduates can't find work.

From the bottom, these potential workers experience problems finding low paying jobs because they have been displaced by illegals in the country.

This is outlined in Paul Craig Robers book:
How the Economy Was Lost: The War of the Worlds,

http://www.amazon.com/How-Economy-Was-Lost-Worlds/dp/1849350...

Google, 'Paul Craig Roberts' as the book is a collection of his articles over the past few years.

Call your representative and say NO to H1-B visas.

"Take hold of the future or the future will take hold of you." -- Patrick Dixon

Illegals only do work that most won't???

Obviously Americans do all types of work...
Even that cliche is NOT TRUE.

LIBERTY OR DEATH!!!

Dont count your Chickens...

It just says they are applying, it doesn't actually say they are working. One down side for an employer can be if you hire a US citizen it's a lot harder to fire a citizen and there are a lot of repercussions to firing a citizen once they get the job, in some states thanks to the government. You can wind up with a lot of employees but few workers.

I'm so tired of that

I'm so tired of that argument, when people say the country needs all these illegal aliens because legal workers won't do it. There are too many examples of legal workers doing the jobs to blow that myth out of the water. Sure, if an employer offers a two dollars an hour to work construction, its doubtful you'll find any legal worker who'll work for a pittance like that. But if the pay is decent, legal workers will apply.

This makes me VERY happy!!!

Its so funny that that piece of crap, Bush said of the illegals that "they want jobs that American's wont take".. I have always known this to be a false myth. Even the agriculture jobs were once done by Americans and they were paid more. Thats a good thing! Why? Because when they get paid more, that money gets spent in return, which creates more American jobs. When illegals come here, they dont pay taxes, they make less than minimum (dont worry, I am AGAINST minimum wage) and then it becomes a giant drain because the money gets sent back to another economy and Im not even counting the social benefits they get.

People, this is a very beautiful thing thats happening right now!

Was this company fined, penalized

or in any way held responsible for having hired illegals?

I hate the idea that businesses are

supposed to police their employees rather than simply hiring the best workers for the jobs.

Now the government will say that the Economy is inproving

"look how many new jobs were created" in AZ the govt will say.

I fear they are wasting their time

The supermarkets will have to pay them at least minimum wage because they are citizens,They will be phased out with illegals again.

if that is true then the

if that is true then the company was paying the illegals under the counter with cash.. I doubt that.

I live here, what they do is cheat on how many employees they have hired and do pay the unknown employees under the table,As a right to work state they can also pay 4.50 or 5.00 an hour if the employee does not go to the labor board and complain,an illegal will not do this.

Either that or they pay them

Either that or they pay them the prevailing wage, but only list it as 10 or 20 hours part time while they're putting in 40 or 50.

I am out of touch with most Americans precisely because I am not out of touch with reality.

Yes Rusty I have seen that also

Many times.

How do we know they're legal to work?

They better have their B.E.L.I.E.V.E. Biometric ID Cards to prove it.

No card - no job! (It's coming, believe me)

He's the man.

Birth Certificates

If you are born here, you can work here (with the exception of work visas). It's not complicated.

Worked Fine Forever

Employers seem to have little trouble telling me that I wont be considered for employment because they somehow are able top find out that I was arrested out of state in 1979, yet I am supposed to beleive that these same employers can not tell if Jaime is documented.

The term 'working illegally'

should turn the stomach of anyone claiming to believe in natural rights.

How can this be? I thought legal American citizens

wouldn't do the jobs that illegals do. Great find.

Were you offering a decent

Were you offering a decent wage or some pittance that only an illegal (with no or limited taxes and government-supplied subsidies for housing, food, and health-care) could afford to accept?

And yes I DO know that, in highly competitive markets (and in the absence of enforcement of the law), once one employer starts hiring illegals the others are stuck with the choice of doing the same or taking a hit to the bottom line that may drive them out of business.

"Obama’s Economists: ‘Stimulus’ Has Cost $278,000 per Job."

That means: For each job "created or saved" about five were destroyed.

Here's what I have discovered with hiring illegals

One good well payed employee is actually cheaper in the long run,This is why.It takes two illegal aliens to do the job of one good employee,They have a cultural habit of learning only one simple operation of only one facet of the business.They show no effort to expand their knowledge past this one ability.One good worker with education can cover multiple facets of the business with the yearning to learn even more and can end up doing the work of two or three with minimal effort.So in the long run they are far more productive and cheaper to employ even though you are paying them more.No one takes the time to figure the numbers,Productivity is the key.
