Amnesty for Illegal Aliens
Just wondering what my HR colleagues think of granting mass amnesty to illegal aliens currently residing in the U.S.. . . I know the Obama administration has been promoting this as a possible way to address the immigration issue(s) in the U.S.
Believe it or not, even in this economy we have low level maintenance jobs that we cannot ever seem to fill with legal employees. We have our fair share of applicants who cannot demonstrate eligibility to work in the U.S. (presumably illegal aliens) and (obviously) cannot hire them. They are otherwise qualified and have demonstrated an enthusiasm and willingness to do the work which no one else will. We do not want to violate the law, but WE DO WANT TO FILL THE POSITIONS . . . seems a shame not to employ otherwise employable people in jobs which remain open.
What do you think about amnesty for illegal aliens currently in the U.S.???
