I have never had any reason to suck up to anyone. And I do not need a job, so thanks anyway. I own my own business and I am just speaking from experience. I know what it is like to deal with the locals. I know what it is like for one of your wonderful employees to be out all night partying, come to work the next day drunk and hungover, and then go out in a company vehicle, wreck it and nearly kill somebody. It has gotten to the point that we have instituted mandatory safety meetings every morning, and not because we have safety issues to discuss but instead because we want to round everybody up in the same room and see which ones are drunk/high today before we send them out to customer sites.<quoted text>
spoken like a true blue suck up. Cmon down Mr. Dong has a job for you ;)
If you want to know the truth about why companies hire illegals, this is one reason why. A lot of people are under the impression that illegals are hired because they cost less than hiring an American, but that is false. Hiring an illegal typically costs more. These people have no education whatsoever, they have no skills or experience, they cannot speak english, and when you are at a jobsite where every minute counts against your bottom line, you end up wasting a lot of time and money just trying to communicate basic tasks. What's worse is when you tell these people one thing, there is a communication problem, and they go do the wrong task. That means wasted time and materials.
Now I have never hired an illegal myself, but I do see why companies do it. Even though these people are generally less skilled and less capable than American workers, they have morals, responsibility and work ethic that American workers do not have. That is because they aren't "entitled" like American workers. And this is one reason why America is losing the battle, our workforce basically can no longer compete with workers in other countries.
