100,000 Employers Use E-Verify Program
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced today that more than 100,000 employers have signed up to participate in E-Verify, a free, easy to use online system that equips participating employers with the tools to quickly and effectively verify the employment eligibility of newly-hired employees.

While participation in E-Verify is voluntary, 15 states now require certain employers to participate and comply in some manner with a federal work authorization verification program.

That's 100,000 employers who demonstrate that they want to follow the law and hire only legal workers. With a difficult job market this news should be heralded as a great victory for those who are seeking work.

When you apply for a job with an employer who uses E-Verify that means you are not competing with an illegal workforce.

Let's make sure that we patronize any business that uses E-Verify and keep our dollars away from those who don't.

You weren't always an E-verify fan, Daniel. What changed?
