what is up walgreens with hiring non-us citens to clean your store?

Don't you think there are some Americans in Kentucky who need jobs? People from America would be happy to clean your stores.

Also why do the people clean your stores why your customers are in the store. Do it after it closes or before it opens. There are no customers or employees who want to be walking very carefully over a wet floor that just got mopped while trying not to make a mess or fall. also no one wants cleaning crews, especially a foreign one, hanging around the bathrooms when you are trying to use it!

and tonight lots of cleaning machines and equipment were blocking the shelves customers wanted to get to. And it was not even 9pm yet!

Please Walgreens. See what you can do!

The reason they have non-us citizens is because these are the people who want to work. I agree it would be better if it was after hours. I am a US citizen but I have seen the work ethic of Americans go down hill over the last few years.

no all walgreens probably does is pay the cleaning company not the cleaning people themselves

Walgreens knows what they are doing by just writing ck to cleaning company.

A few states like AL and New Mexico have started cracking down, however, most states including KY and especially the fed govt do not care. They know what is going on, but there are over 13 million illegals in the US. A problem so large that fed govt cannot deport. Until they do address, you will see more and more Chinese and Mexican restaurants due to the this and more small companies like cleaning agencies employing and paying illegals cash.

I could care less, but they need to pay them a good wage and take social security, KY tax, city tax, etc out of there checks. Other wise it just keeps wages depressed and is a drain on Fed, state and local govt by not paying taxes.

Restaurants are some the worst. Most Mexican places have illegals in the kitchen paying by the day not by the hour. Thus, they are working 10-12 hours days for around $50. Which comes down to around $4-5 an hour with not social security, medicare, KY tax or city tax. Local American places like Tuckers following the tax and labor laws cannot compete with this $4/hr wage. You wonder why so many Mexican places are opening? I do love my Mexican food, however, wish many did not do this and if they are the govt would crack down on it and stop looking the other way. It is a matter of time, elected officials will stop looking the other way on this issue.

Seriously, do you think an operation as large as Walgreens is going to lock the doors and go home, while a cleaning crew is left behind to forage around in the Pharmacy? Meanwhile, the cleaning contracter is probably making a killing while sitting on his ass watching Justified. Also, the business is ailing until I- 69 brings in the business that was projected to build there in the first place. The cleaning companies, roofing, concrete, road department, etc., encourage Mexican employees, as well as any other immigrants, otherwise, there will not be enough social security taxes collected to send to all it's current recipients. This will be the death of what we consider, "real Americans", while everyone in there are most likely buying products imported from China or somewhere in the first place, and then you bitch about it. In the words of "Red Neckerson", "Wake up America"!
