119 of those applicants use to work for Chipotle. The other one is a registered child molestor by the name of Earl...
Chipotle didn't care. They are only doing ths now because of the Audit. They will go out of business in a few... because now they have to actually conform to labor laws.
Judging by the surnames very few used to work at Chipotle. The ad stated that they had to pass a background check and drug test. I bet I had well over 100 American citizens who wanted that job.

They're trying to make enough to keep a roof over their heads. If anything, they UNDER sell themselves. And yes, I am qualified to wash dishes. I wash my own and don't need an illegal to do it for me. But what I do for a living requires a working knowledge of the English language, so I'm luckier than a lot of my friends - I don't get squeezed out by crooks who are too lazy to learn the language.
I love you!

I do not think Americans or Whities or...crackers, heh, are really mad about skin color, or even sharing some American jobs, but what we really really do mind is applying for a job in America and being turned down because we do not speak Spanish. America is the only country that I know of that does not require new comers to learn the language and claim a valuable skill. Pretty soon we will have to learn Spanish to apply for welfare or food stamps...maybe even unemployment. Again, the only country in the world that I know of that has this concern. This is also unfair to legal immigrants of other cultures who work hard to learn English to survive here. Why should they have to and not people from Mexico? I do not think I have met one single immigrant from India or Japan or many other places they come here from, who does not at least try to speak English. Gosh, maybe Americans who were born here should be forced to learn every earthly language, just so it will be fair to immigrants of all nations who migrate here, and not just the people who speak Spanish.

How about we solve the issue by cleaning all these fricken illegals out of OUR country, and start closing our fricken borders. The U.S. is starting to look more like Mexico or Somalia than anything. It doesn't take a genius to figure out a big part of why our country is going down the shitter.

Good job?

These are the people fueling illegal immigration. They hired these people in the first place.

Until we start jailing employers in a serious manner, poor Mexicans looking for a job will keep coming here. Why wouldn't they.

Jail the employers if you want to make a difference.

Jailing management would be way too effective. Government wants job security for all the agencies involved in finding illegals.

If Government implemented actions that would eliminate crime all their officers would be out of work.

Much better to keep policies in place that encourage misdeeds by illegal workers and keep chasing them around..

Much like the "War on Drugs."

Promoted by people who claim they want smaller government and less government waste.

If the clowns in Washington would clean up the welfare mess and dump all the able bodied people who can work but won't, there wouldn't be jobs here for the people sneaking in. Why can't the public understand that all these people on the news shows whining about not being able to find work ,are really overshadowed by the illegals that come here and get a job right away. Many of us have had horrible jobs growing up and putting ourselves through school without student loans or debt even while raising a family. We did whatever it took to better our lives and seeing porch monkeys demand a living without effort and refusing to take jobs beneath their dignity makes me think more of the people coming here than those American deadbeats.
