Unfortunately, the laws are written in such a way that we have to play these silly "games." It would be better if we were just allowed to hire whomever we please without government interference.
So in other words you don't give a damn about the American worker.

I think all Americans should be allowed to contract with any individual they choose to perform a task for money.
However, I would never knowingly hire an (alleged) illegal. I simply never bother to ask whether they are illegal (as is my right). I don't ask, and they don't tell, and business gets done!
That's an awful attitude as far as our country is concerned. I'll give our idiotic government at least half the blame for allowing employers like you to feel comfortable gaming the system. But you're definitely not blameless.

If the American worker is worth a damn, he won't have any problem finding work. Frankly, even if he isn't worth a damn, and has an engineering degree, he'll probably be steadily employed.

But if I'm going to hire someone, I want the best available person.

The old saying "you get what you pay for" is largely bull shit.

Often, the cheaper product or service is as good or better, and often a much wiser choice.

you are an idiot.

aiding and abetting a criminal is a felony crime.

guys like you make me sick.

so, if I hire some punks to beat you up. maybe even murder you. that's ok with you since I'm not involved with actually pulling the trigger.

Boy, you sure dispel the notion that all Asians are intelligent.

Here's the deal, genius. Hiring someone to kill someone else is a felony. Hiring an American citizen contractor who may (or may not) have illegals in his crew is not even a misdemeanor- it's completely legal. Read that slowly and let it sink into that addled brain of yours- it's LEGAL under existing law.

I know, it's hard to get your limited intellect wrapped around the concept. Wipe the drool off your chin and try again, sooner or later, you'll figure it out (I hope).

one must file an I-9 eligibility form for everybody they hire. this includes day laborers.

if you hire a contractor that hires day laborers, you are required by law to refer to the I-9 forms that he holds for his employees.

if you do not do this, you are violating federal law.

BS! If an American works for a contractor they are being undercut by contractors that hire illegal aliens. It isn't because he can't find a job.

Best available? No, from your post "the cheapest" and it matters not to you if they are illegals or not. Real loyal, lawabiding American you are. People like you make me sick! It's all about you! Your fellow Americans nor our laws mean a damn thing to you! That's about as selfish as one can get.

He knows what's up ! These comments I by-pass cause I know he is out to get a reaction that's all.
It is obvious what's going on,why an illegal holds a job while an American who is better qualified is out of work.
Why Illegals collect all sorts of taxpayer goodies which our fellow American are denied or have to show so much documentation in order to qualify for whatever service.It's obvious!

That guy always tries to justify his hiring of illegals, but he's not the only one. There are many of them.

Close the borders and close the borders NOW. Start mass deportation NOW. guard the boarders with the military and American citizens, If illegals force us to fire on them that's up to the boarder jumper. Nothing like a few rotting bodies in the desert sun to give them the idea we don't want them.

I do not support allowing those that have broken our laws to escape the penalties that were in place at the time they broke the laws and no way do I want to change any laws to give them a reward for their dirty deeds. These are not the type that deserve to be here and they need to be removed. That is the only possible way justice can be served.
I don't care how bad they or anybody else whine about either.

If they truly can't find legal workers to fill their jobs they need to look only at themselves and their companies to find out why.
It is called "The law of supply and demand". It applies to employers as well as consumers.
