Illegal Immigrant Issue Inside the Company

     The risThe Corporate Judgee in interest over illegal immigration brings to mind an experience I had while attending the panels. While there, I was able to observe a case where an employee had provided the company with false I.D., and a false Social Security number. The employee worked a number of years for the company under the cover of the false information provided. He also was a college student, and was married during his time with the company. 
     The issue arose when he was able to go through the citizenship process and obtain a valid Social Security number, and documents giving him real citizenship. He then had to reveal to the company that he had provided false information on his initial application.
     The story that never gets told is the personal side. The employee had proven himself a hard worker, and also was a union steward. He had a new baby, and was very dependant on his job.
     Telling this story is not about defending illegal immigration. Employers would love to bring illegals into the workforce to reduce wages and the cost of benefits. The right wings attack on the left is that they gain voters. The reality is, the real citizens, of this country, are under attack by the multi-national corporations. The problem is not about illegal imigrants, it’s about illegal employers. Until the people take back the government from the corporations, the danger of being replaced by slave labor is ever present. 
     The end of the story was, “claim of the union upheld”.
      Due to a technicality, and the company’s reluctance to take out a decent employee, the worker was put back to work. The compassion on the company’s side was very obvious, and thanks to a loophole, they were able to save face without relenting from their “we control our world”, mentality. Sometimes there is still just a little of James E. Casey’s compassion for the workers left in the company. It is quickly disappearing sadly.
     The story shows even illegals need the Teamsters.
