E-Verify or Deny your Business

Post by USA Citizen on Tue Apr 03, 2012 5:47 pm

E-Verify or Deny your Business

How can unemployed Americans send a message to employers that it is important to hire workers who are legally in the United States?

The answer is to simply deny your business to companies that hire undocumented workers that haven't been verified through the E-Verify process.

How many businesses have you seen with signs that state that they use the E-verify process to check the legal status of their workers? I went into a Wendy's hamburger restaurant and saw a E-Verify sign displayed by the door along with a "Now Hiring" sign. Other restaurants that I go to do not display any mention of E-Verify next to their "Now Hiring" signs. I wonder if asking the manager if they used E-Verify in the employee selection process would help us determine if such businesses were in compliance with U.S. law in regard to employment?

I notice that in many of the "fast food" restaurants it is impossible for me to understand what the employees are saying and at the danger of nationality profiling I wonder what percentage of those employees have the right to work. These may be low-paying jobs, but considering that teenage and young adult American citizens are having trouble getting these jobs I wonder what allowing this situation to continue is doing to the wages of all American citizens. If wages are kept artifically low because of the abundance of low paid undocumented and unverified workers, then stopping this might help raise the wages of American citizens. Otherwise those unemployed citizens must rely on charity, state and federal benefits to survive.

Can we as unemployed American make a difference by choosing to spend what little money we have at businesses that proudly proclaim that they use E-Verify to determine if their employees actually have the right to work in the U.S.? I believe that we can make a difference and bring millions of jobs back to Americans. Although there are some politicians that say that this is not a problem and that only the worst offenders should deported, not taking action on this issue errodes the American Dream.

Thanks for bringing this topic up. It is an ongoing issue and you nailed it on the head about the teenage/ young Americans not able to get these jobs.
Americans first.
