Illegal workers must make minimum wage



A response to one of the complaints I made to BOLI:

Daniel,

The Wage and Hour Division does not take into account an employee's status, but rather that any employee in Oregon, unless otherwise exempt, is paid the current Oregon minimum wage of $7.50 per hour, and applicable overtime pay.

However, if you would like to file a complaint that employees are notreceiving check stubs, which this office has jurisdiction over, the Complaint Form is found under Wage and Hour, from our main website www.oregon.gov/boli. You may complete the form anonymously if you like by simply not placing your name on the form. Send to the Portland Office for processing.

What does it take? Does a worker have to be holding a sign stating that he is illegal? Oh wait...

Are you equally outraged, indignant and distressed about the rampant lawbreaking, at home and abroad, by the Bush administration? Or do you just pick on the little guy?

"Send to the Portland Office for processing."

Daniel-my Friend,

"processing" means Round file. Dan Gardner is a big time Union-Democrat who has already told his staff to deep six Daniel.

I just got a wonderful idea. Why dont one of us pose as a prospective employer and pick up a butt-load of these illegals and haul their ass out to the desert and just leave them there? We could pose as employers and have them do horrible jobs and then not pay them anything! take them out to some old farmland and have them move all the fence posts back one foot from where they are. and then after they do the work drive off. can we come up with some other great gags to pull on these "day laborers?

Just thought I'd add that there was a video, I thought I had it, of a guy picking up some of these people in LA and then driving up to the Immigration Office. Too bad I can't find it any where.

B.O.L.I. is the ONLY State agency exempt from the "sanctuary" law, ORS 181.

So they are expected by the Legislator's, who added subsection 4, to verify that said job applicant is allowed to work here.
And yes, they are not getting a pay stub.

Rinowatch; Yes boli form will probably end up in round file BUT if just 1/2 of those reading this blog and yours and listening to Lars, Taft & Kropf, actually took 3 minutes and filled out the form, the huge pile of complaints would have to be addressed. it could become newsworthy.

In fact I have gotten a request for more info from the CCB, from an investigator.

I am following through to get results.
I hope others do the same.

This is the same thing that happened with the "Carousel's", NOBODY beleived me at first!

Following through built trust and even Gov. Ted cancelled agencies that he controls from going. And the numbers went from 2,000 to 200 lining up for their proof of Illegal alienship.

These laws are only going to be enforced when we demand it, together.

The guy who picked up the illegal aliens and then took them to the Immigration Office is a flaming ***hole, it's obvious in the way he refers to Mexicans. You can be opposed to border-crashing, welfare stealing and all the rest of the crap the aliens are pulling without being a racist.
The guy's concept was funny but I don't find him the least entertaining.

The fellow was kind of obnoxious but it was one of the funniest videos I have seen recently...

I'm in favor of this:

Min wage for illegals would be a disincentive for employers to hire them.
