I have an 18 year old son who is just starting out in life.
He is going to college after graduating this year from high school and is joining the workforce. He has had a job at a restaurant for about a month and by all accounts appears to be working quite hard at it.
He also has a friend who is currently starting a new job.
Both of them had a hard time meeting all of the new requirements for a new job. Having to show proof of residency, show an actual Soc Sec card, etc. They are working at different places and in different industries.
I have not started a new job in 15 years and do not remember ever having to do any of this.
My question is, is this because of immigration laws? Are there new requirements for employment to make people prove they are citizens and therefore keep illegals from working?
why the Hell are we letting all of the illegal immigrants stay and work?
Are we really harassing people born and bred in the US, who are trying to work in this horrendous economy, at the same time that we are turning a blind eye to the illegals the above mentioned laws were meant to stop?
Finally, are others seeing this or am I crazy?
