yes, they all employ illegal labor. literally, every one of them. that's a start.For what ? do you have a civil or criminal code in mind ?
again, if a business is willing to use slave labor overseas instead of paying americans, whether the argument is profit or not, is a bad thing.I am not so sure it was the corporations as much as our government policies. I mean every public corporation is tasked with one thing and that is profitable return and when our policies encourage such things they will cut costs by moving to cheaper labor anywhere another large issue is EPA compliance some of the manufacturing moved because environmental compliance in the U.S. is cost prohibitive. I suspect China has some seriously polluted place much like we used to have as a result.
cheap labor is bad. a race to the bottom is bad. paying paco and his friends instead of americans is bad.
we had an entire generation get rich by making small businesses exploit illegal labor. it wasn't just wall street; it was main street. and the "well i couldn't afford to pay anyone else" is a cop out. if you can't afford to pay employees you shouldn't have a business. every construction company. every roofing company. go ahead and say "those are hard jobs nobody else will do!" that's bs. the owners of those corrupt companies pay those guys because they can throw them in a dumpster when they get injured instead of being legally responsible.
somehow we went from single income labor job providing for an entire family to multiple incomes just to cover the basics. i'm sure the 40,000,000 people who aren't supposed to be here and the all the factory jobs leaving america had *something* to do with it.
you can't blame government regulations when every company from Wal-Mart to the local grocery store is paying illegal immigrants.
we have laws they won't enforce; why would the regulations stop anyone?
again, it's a cop out to pay for illegal labor and screw over america.
