Disgusting piece of chit! These are NOT jobs Americans won't do but a greedy company cutting corners on employees who have no right to be here in the first place! The company should be shuttered and the owners thrown in jail!

"Both accidents involved undocumented workers, authorities said."

No both involved "illegal aliens" as defined by federal language. Cut the PC crapola.

Immigration and Nationality Act (INA)§ 212(a)(9)(B)(i)(I) and (II), 8 U.S.C.§ 1182(a)(9)(B)(i)(I) and (II)

talk about giving America away! i thought that crap only happens in ca.

again if you think illegal aliens only do the jobs citizens will not do look at it this way,place your own job title in the box where this is said being all jobs are will fall into this.

some of these jobs pay over 100,000 a year .

Once again the typical excuse, "Hispanic Workers ‘Did Not Fully Understand’" doesn't cut it here. There should not have been any illegals on this work site or any other....the chances for these kinds of work accidents only increases when there are illegals who do not "fully understand" the importance of following job safety protocols. Shoddy shortcuts cause problems down the road which could endanger lives. This contractor needs to lose his license.

that is the kind of work i have been doing bridges overpasses. anyone on the job who cannot speak english will make for an unsafe work place. common sense plays a big part in the work place. our best ppe is ourselves and coworkers when you cannot communicate with all it is unsafe.
and an unsafe fool can get all hurt.
