Ah the restaurant business, I wonder why oh why this industry would like illegal alien workers? Hint $$$.

Promoting safe and tolerant spaces to restaurant workers, employees and customers. The sanctuary restaurant doesn't protect illegals from LEO, it "educates" how to handle raids.
Another national protest was a day with out immigrants. This is where immigrant and college workers stayed home from work to prove how important they are. Oddly enough the Sanctuary restaurants closed in solidarity, I wonder if they had no workers?

www.sfchronicle.com...
Largely symbolic in nature, the collaboration is led by the Restaurant Opportunities Center United and promotes safe, tolerant spaces to restaurant workers, employers and consumers. While the sanctuary restaurant label doesn’t protect immigrants from law enforcement, the classification does spur business owners to educate themselves and their staff about how to handle federal officials during possible raids.

Another national protest — dubbed “A Day Without Immigrants” — took place Thursday, where foreign-born workers and students stayed home to demonstrate their importance to the country’s workforce and way of life; several dozen Bay Area restaurants closed for the day in solidarity.


Restaurants rely on immigrant labor, so they want no changes in laws. This could effect the labor pool and drive hourly wages up.


Nationally, the restaurant industry relies heavily on immigrant labor. Restaurants employed 2.3 million foreign-born workers, or more than 8 percent of the foreign-born workers in the country, according to 2015 data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

I thought the entire state of California declared that it's a "sanctuary". Doesn't that include all businesses, churches, schools, etc. therein?

Not good enough, the restaurants want to be super duper sanctuary for "immigrants".

It's amazing the lengths these people will go to so they can keep their illegal slave labour force.

I was talking to a contractor today in New York, he can't complete anymore with illegal immigrant business. He has taxes, workmens comp, insurance, ect... if he operated like that he'd be arrested.

Years ago there was some kind of protest for illegals and half the workforce didn't show up where I was employed. The rest of us that did show up for work, worked harder to make up for the others being away at their protest. Quotas were met and no harm done. So they didn't win anything by doing that.

Companies should be held responsible for hiring illegals. They get away with turning away those that are legal who need the jobs and they get away with hiring illegals, treating illegals poorly and paying them sub-standard wages.

All slaves had to be housed and fed, they were important to the business.

I can't say what the current illegal/employer relationship would be compared to.

The only one that won was your employer. They got the same work done with out having to have more help.

They made more that day than usual.


I am surprised they didn't fire the "unnecessary help" that was away, it is obvious they are not needed.

If nobody wants to work for reasonable wages in the restaurants, then people in California may have to eat TV dinners.

True, this is where Trump's policies will help balance the scales back out.

Or the price of the product will have to reflect a true cost to produce it.

a day without immigrants? we are all immigrants, why don`t they be truthful and call it what it really is, a day without ILLEGAL immigrants.

I`m wondering if on their "day without ILLEGAL" immigrants" did all the illegals stop committing crimes for one day? did all the illegals return one days worth of food stamps? did they return one days worth of welfare payments?

That will make the white and entitled people working in that area upset, their higher wages will negatively effect the populations lifestyle. But the Illegal immigrants will enjoy better lives if the people have to pay them what white people think their own work is worth. I say whites, but actually all people benefit from these immigrants getting less wages, except the immigrants themselves.

There's the irony, Wunk. If the sanctuary businesses actually
worked within the law they wouldn't make any money either.
Liars may never prosper, but thieves not so much...

PS Great thread as usual, seasonal. Bumped and bounced to
my oldest friends. If I know illegal aliens work in a restaurant
I don't go there... ever again.

I worked in manufacturing until the end of 2012, seasonal.
There's a tradeoff for everything. Would you rather just break
even with an increased labor cost; or beat the clock for a
while writing off a skyrocketing scrap rate from the inept?
Guess you can figure what my last employer did. They were
the last by the way-- and I get to watch somewhat protected now.

The only way the wages go up is to have the illegals gone.

So, they won't be getting any of the whit privilege (?) you are talking about.

Define break even.

Our debt based economy, fractional reserve lending and if you aren't growing your dying business boom and bust cycles makes me wonder what break even means. Sorry I went off the rail a bit.

IDN seas, maybe break even is a small bowl of mac and cheese
after work instead of the white rice-- and being able to open up
the next morning would have been good enough, even 10 yr. ago.

All I know is that when businesses cheat in order to stay open;
maybe their business model is enough fail or greedy enough to
be looked at for culinary (or in my case industrial) Darwin-ating.
