Are the Days of Chain Restaurants Hiring Illegal Immigrants Over?
I don't care who hires who, of course, being an Aztlanista and all. But the days of chain restaurants hiring illegal immigrants are probably over.
For the past couple of months, Chipotle has been firing employees who can't verify their legal status, much to the consternation of immigrant advocates, who rightly point out that Chipotle can't claim ignorance. It's gotten so bad that Chipotle workers are now quitting before the feds get at them.
Nation's Restaurant News did a story on the trend earlier this week, with Pei Wei playing the ignorant part. Instead of throwing their workers under the bus, they, Chipotle and others should stick by their employees--yeah, right. . . .
