I work with illegal aliens!
For the past few months I have been debating if I should post this thread or not.. I work in a kitchen, called Mugs-N-Jugs here in florida. I am
looking for some advice, on how I should handle my issues here. This kitchen has 2 guys, who shouldn't even be in this country. I know 100% that
both these guys are using false paper work, and getting plenty of hours. So many hours infact that I have to sit by the sidelines while they get to
suck up all the hours in the kitchen.
They get these hours, as they work for pennies on the dollar, and will work overtime without overtime pay.
Yet deep in my heart I understand they have famlies, and mouths to feed. One of the guys just got 2 brand new tats of his kids on his forarms! They
care for their famlies like anyone else in this world. They are people like you and me, and I feel damn gulity for even thinking about turning them
So I just go about my days, and I let this stuff slide. I just let it ride, as I know in my heart, they are good workers.. Granted I can not
understand most of what they are saying half the time.
It turns out just last week, these guys get all my hours! I only end up with 15 hours a week, as these guys will work for next to nothing! So they
get 40+ hours a week!! While I have to suffer, because I wont work for 5$ an hour, with NO overtime pay..
Should I call INS?? Or should I just suck it up, and go on with my job?
I am not happy with my main boss.. If I may share this with everyone here, he is the kind of guy who treats women like objects, and then men like
I tried to speak with him last week, about some kitchen issues.. He told me straight out..
"Never talk to me directly!" "If you have something to say, you talk to the manager, YOU never address me personally!"
Like I am some kind of lowly dog, I am not on his level to speak with him directly..
I was lets say highly offeneded! And if it wasn't for the way things are around here, I would have told him off, and walked right out there and
But work is not easy to find.. So I had to suck it up, and take it. He knows this all to well, and he treats his workers like crap.. And he hires
illegal workers to pick up the slack!
I for one am at the end of my rope.. I can not quit, or walk out on my job. First of all, I don't do that.. When I work, I work, and I bust my
chops! And I bust my chops for peanuts!
Thanks for your advice in advance.. I would really like to know if I should turn them in.. Or just let it ride..
And if I do call INS, will they even do anything?
I mean I have PROOF they are using fake paper work, and should not be in this country.. Let alone work a fulltime job here..
