Nursery and restaurant lobby say immigration rule could cost Oregon thousands of jobs
The “No Match” rule, created by the Department for Homeland Security, would require employers to electronically verify the status of their workers to determine if their social security number is on record with the Social Security Administration.
In a nutshell: the restraunt and nurery industries say they want people to be able to work using YOUR social security number which causes YOU a bunch of financial problems.
Kathy LeCompte, owner of Brook’s Tree Farm near Salem, said that she has followed the undocumented workforce issue for nearly 15 years and that the proposed federal rule as it stands now, leaves her and other business owners with an unsure future. She doesn’t know if she should expand her business or invest in equipment because she is not sure how long her employees will be around.
Man Kathy, I feel about as sorry for you as I do for the drug dealer who is "not sure if he should expand his territory" because his illegal grow operation could be discovered and burned. Kathy says that her employees are criminals using other people's social security numbers! She admits that she is breaking the law by hiring them! And we are supposed to feel sorry for her as the victim here!
