Kentucky Employers Claim They Can't Find Workers, Must Hire Illegal Immigrants

Feb 15, 2011 Full story: my.firedoglake.com 17

Today’s issue of Louisville, Kentucky’s Courier-Journal has a front page article that helpfully explains many jobs in the area must be filled by illegal immigrants because no American has applied for them.

The story appears to be spawned out of the fears expressed by employers like the area’s horse farms that the state’s legislature may crack down on hiring illegal immigrants, cutting off their last source of labor.

Most Americans don't apply for jobs that will not pay them a living wage and those guys will not use the available visa's either because they would then have to pay the immigrant workers a living wage. How else did these horse farmers become so wealthy? It sure wasn't all from breeding and winning races.

As the article states horse farmers say Americans won’t apply for the jobs yet the employers do not advertise any job openings. I guess they expect Americans to drive to every farm and ask if they have any job openings.

More pap from businesses who have made a longstanding practice of trimming the payroll by using a black market labor force they can abuse at will.

Sorry, business owners! Time to pay a living wage, sell the luxury toys and make a modest rather than an obscene profit.

El Toro Poop! I am a 67 year old lady who lives on an organic farm. I muck out the horse stalls, pitch the hay, plow, plant and help harvest the crops. I also do the cooking, sewing, canning and preserving of our food. I'm hardly out of shape and neither are my sons who own the farm. They also work in construction so shove it Emilio!

The CJ of Louisville, KY is a liberal newspaper and supports the invasion of illegal aliens.

Here is an example of the truth in which this newspaper has printed only lies or cover ups:

I have several family members who work at the JBS Swift Meat packaging company on Story Avenue in Louisville, KY. Well, they work there now but any day could be the......pink slip.

This company fired one entire department and brought in illegal aliens at lower wages, no healthcare insurance and no taxes to be deducted.

They were given instructions to go to the indigent hospital for care which is University Hospital...just down the street from this plant on Jackson Street. They are given a pay check which does not reflect ANY deductions and they can also obtain meat purchase for a fraction of the cost.

My relative said, they know the American system so well, if they do anything wrong and are reprimanded--they begin to speak english well..by threatening racism and a lawsuit. If their paychecks are incorrect, their english pops to the surface.

You don't have to believe me, go there and see for yourself. What does this do to the American who not only sees this on a daily basis but has to work with it everyday?

This is what the CJ does in reporting lies but if you are a citizen of Louisville, KY, then you know differently.

I have had several friends my relative recommended for a job but were never hired....oh yeah, they were Americans. If you read the CJ report, it states that there is over 1000 people working at this plant which are from several different countries and not Americans. There is only about 1500 workers there totally.

Report them and keep reporting them until something is done. If I'm not mistaken, Swift has been caught before hiring illegals. Call the television stations.

Great idea! ICE may have orders to ignore illegal aliens and those that hire them but the IRS does not.

You are right, Swift has been caught before. Although, this is the action they take and ICE will not force the law:

They fire the illegal aliens and rehire them back a few weeks later.

If the Swift in Louisville has over 1000 workers from different countries and only 500 workers that are American, it isn't because they are firing the illegal aliens.

Also, Swift who was owned by Americans sold out to a Brazilian company who brought in mostly latino workers to manage and supervise----call the Personnel office of Swift and speak to one.

These people should be marched out and shot! Intentionally evading employment law like that is one of many reasons we're in the hole we are.

Illegal alien in U.S.A? Could any one as to Native Americans about illegal aliens who came to U.S to rip-off lands,jobs and more? European desendents have forgotten that they are living in a STOLEN LAND. A land which have been rip-off for those who follow the Mayflower wetback europeans rafters than have landed in U.S. soil. Those sonofathief European must return to Native Americans our land and stop behave as legal LANDLORD of a country that don't belong to any european descenders.
