"We can Help...
Sec. of Labor, Hilda Solis: "Every worker in America has the right to be paid fairly, whether documented or not."

Solis is a Communist.
Illegals have only one right when it comes to immigration -— TO GO BACK HOME AND QUEUE LIKE EVERYBODY ELSE IF THEY WANT TO COME HERE.
Maybe we can designate the November 2 elections as “fodders day.”
If it rains on fodders day, we can sing hello mudder, hello fodder.
If it is ILLEGAL for ILLEGALS to be HIRED in the 1st place, what is her reasoning for this lunacy?
Illegals have no rights, except the right to be returned to their home country.
There is no right to be paid fairly....period....end of story.
Gosh, I wonder what other “rights” lawbreakers are entitled to in this country.
The right to vote?
The right to unemployment insurance if they lose their jobs?
The right to Food Stamps if their incomes are too low?
The right to Medicaid if they cannot afford medical care?
The right to public housing if they cannot afford shelter?
The right to be left alone by law enforcement?
Then they should go back to their failed third world countries and fight for fair wages.
I would like to see a program that encourages illegal immigrants and citizens to blow the wistle on their employeers. If you are the first caller to identify the business, then you are granted a 2 year work permit. 2nd caller, 1 year work permit. 3rd caller, 6 months.
All others get deported, business gets fined, $10,000 per worker for the first offense. $20,000 per worker for the second offense and $30,000 for the third offense plus the officers of the business go to jail for 1 month times the number of illegals employed over the last year.
Existing legal immigrants or citizens would be eligible to receive a bounty equal to the level of the fine once the fines have been paid by the company.
Use of the e-verify system plus a background check on each employee is proof positive that the employer made a reasonable effort to verify the citizenship of the individual and provides active defense against prosecution.
It`s illegal to hire foreigners who are in the USA illegally so therefore illegal to pay them a dime.
who also despises the 'rule of law'. (It depends on what the meaning of "illegal" is.)
...and welfare and social security and voting and housing and food stamps and schooling.
Who needs Amnesty? We already have your government in our pocket. :)
NO they don’t they don’t even have a right to work!
Illegals who take jobs from US citizens Americans are earning unfair wages.
Solis was raised in La Puente, California by immigrant parents from Nicaragua and Mexico.
Her father was a Teamsters shop steward in Mexico and after coming to the U.S. worked at the Quemetco battery recycling plant in the City of Industry in the San Gabriel Valley. There he again organized for the Teamsters, to gain better health care benefits for workers, but also contracted lead poisoning.
Her mother worked for over 20 years on the assembly line of Mattel once her children were all of school age, belonged to the United Rubber Workers, and was outspoken about working conditions.
Solis served near the end of the Carter administration in the White House Office of Hispanic Affairs
At the start of the Reagan administration in 1981, she became a management analyst at the civil rights division of the Office of Management and Budget, but her dislike for Ronald Reagan’s policies motivated her to leave later that year
In her one term in the State Assembly, Solis was prominent in the debate on illegal immigration to the United States, backing a bill to allow immigrants in the U.S. illegally to attend California colleges as long as they were residing in the state
In 1997, she worked to pass environmental justice legislation with a law to protect low-income and minority communities from newly located landfills, pollution sources, and other environmental hazards in neighborhoods that already had such sites. She got the bill, SB 1113, approved over the strong opposition of various business interests, water contractors, and some state government agencies, but Wilson vetoed it
Solis was not a member of the Education and Labor Committee, but championed the Employee Free Choice Act and was the only member of Congress on the board of American Rights at Work, a pro-union organization that strongly supports the act, for whom she served as treasurer starting in 2004
For 2010, Solis’s agenda is to enact some ninety new rules and regulations intended to grant more power to unions and to workers
“Illegals have a right....”
Twisted minds are in places of authority. Sad.
So do other criminals also have a right to fair wages?
