How to boost corporate profits by exploiting both American and undocumented workers

Deportable workers unprotected by U.S. Labor Laws. Unauthorized immigrants contribute to the economy in vital industries and pay billions in taxes, but it’s also true that 5 percent of the labor force is comprised of unauthorized, deportable workers who aren’t fully protected by U.S. labor laws.

Employers threaten deportation. Unauthorized workers are often afraid to complain about unpaid wages and substandard working conditions because employers can retaliate by taking actions that can lead to their deportation. This gives employers extraordinary power to exploit and underpay them. When the immigrants’ wages are suppressed, so are the wages of U.S. workers competing for similar jobs.

Immigrant workers exploited. This exploitation is not just theoretical. A landmark study found that 37% of unauthorized immigrant workers were victims of minimum wage violations. An astounding 84% who worked full-time were not paid time-and-a-half for overtime when they worked more than 40 hours in a week.

Employers pit undocumented workers against other workers. The bargaining power of U.S.-born workers competing in the low-wage labor market is undercut when millions of unauthorized workers cannot safely complain to the Labor Department or sue for unpaid wages. NY Times

"Walmart managers' threats of reporting the illegal immigrants didn't amount to forced labor"

"Walmart stores have been in the news numerous times for alleged crooked practices. In a recent Third Circuit Court of Appeals case, the court rejected numerous claims against the retail giant. The lawsuit was brought by a Walmart cleaning crew who claimed that they had unpaid overtime. But Fair Labor wasn't their only claim. They claimed that Walmart was a corrupt organization that took part in the transport of illegal immigrants and finally, that Walmart managers used to lock the workers in overnight.

As part of their RICO claim, the plaintiffs raised slavery, or the more technical term, involuntary servitude. The Third Circuit tossed this claim as "frivolous," finding that the Walmart managers' threats of reporting the illegal immigrants didn't amount to forced labor." - Abstracts from article by Tanya Roth, Esq.
