Ahem, ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS with no official U.S. citizenship status, lack social security numbers, and that skip paying any yearly taxes, HAVE NO RIGHTS TO SUE under U.S. law. They are not officially here, and are already violating federal and state immigration laws continually for legal employment.

This moronic illegal immigrants argument for exploitive working conditions is the same as saying that thieves are disappointed when they rob a bank and there wasn't as much money as they hoped to steal. Too bad, so sad. That's why they are here - to do various forms of under the table grunt work without any form of taxable responsibility to the host country. It's not just the jobs excuse. Please, everyone would like to have a tax-free lifestyle.

Their complaints can also be considered a form of good-ratting-will to expose complicit U.S. businesses that employ these illegal workers and subject them to substandard wages, hazardous working conditions, and ommissions of worker facts to the state and federal governments.

These complaints from illegals, however, are a good way to round them up and ship their law breaking butts back to where they came from with a postage due bill attached for their home governments pay for and then settle with.

Happy day, gracias, but no compensatory dollars for you slickos! Ciao.

I hear you and agree, we have so many companies in San Luis Obispo or nation wide hiring undocumented workers. I am using this company below as an example that continues to grow using undocumented workers for many years.

Executive Janitorial has for years been using illegal tactics by hiring illegal immigrants from Mexico. They hire people giving them the lowest wages possible and putting them in unsupervised offices which is impossible to detect. Growth is based on under bidding all the competition and making their profit by hiring undocumented workers by cutting their wages. It is terrible that these immigrants work so hard and they make nothing, no benefits, nothing as they are being used for cheap slave labor. Most people who hire Executive Janitorial services know they have possible illegal immigrants working for them but with inflation prices nation wide people just don’t say anything and give them the business anyway. Real Sad

Beware, this company has loads of suspicious illegal immigrants, don’t trust them. They pay the lowest wages possible as they under bid all their competition hiring suspicious illegal immigrants to profit from low labor cost.

See their web site:

Read the story on their success but the editor didn't question their

Executive Janitorial has more than 35 vehicles serving San Luis Obispo and Santa Maria California. They employee almost 99% immigrants from Mexico like family members, relatives, cousins, you name it, and they will hire them. Wages they will not tell you over the phone nor will they tell you anything about their clients locations or even if you want to find their locations and report them in. The US Customs Enforcement but is so out numbered as California is loaded with undocumented workers as businesses like this just take advantage of it and employ them. The immigrants come here illegally under difficult situations living in small homes with many people sharing everything in bad conditions. It is horrible that they work for so little are taken advantage of by people employing them for hardly anything to live on.

Because Executive Janitorial under bids every client it comes across, they flood the area with their low low competition service as the bidding becomes a medium instead of being competitive, the service is like a bad real estate market going down instead of going up making it a rip off not to the clients but to the workers. If there employees were legal, Executive Janitorial wouldn’t have all these immigrant workers working for them, as they would go somewhere else and make a better living.. If the workers are working for these wages and they have nothing, it is a rip off.

We need to hand out stiff fines and jail time to employers hiring illegal workers. If we cut off the incentives, then these people will stop coming here.
