Using illegal workers in NY

I have a legit business but from time to time need to hire day labors.

What should I be concerned about?

If I get pulled over what would happen etc....

Because those kinds of places charge like 30 an hr versus the 10 anyone can pay illegal help....


As far as what to worry about...

Is he gonna claim the money yer payin him..if so thats trouble..

If he gets hurt yoiurs introuble if he decides to be a dick..

If immigration (la migra) catches you,,,guy gets deported and id immaginr you get f-ed

Just don't do it...and you won't get in trouble. Sooner our later you'll get caught, he'll be deported, and you'll be in trouble with the police/ Borders & Custom agents.

I think the chances of guy getting hurt and squealing if you dont pay for hospital bills is much higher than you getting caught.....

If youre a risk taker..Make a verbal agreement that youwill pay those hospital bills if he keeps his trap shut..........If he is even worth that much to you in the first place.....

.......I know mine is..

hardly, you usually pay around 15 bucks an hour for a day labor. but keep in mind you are just getting a warm body with potentially no experience...no one ever claimed being legit was going to be cheap...

if u get pulled over, the only thing the dumbass cops can do is ask for his ID. they cannot ask for green card unless they are the "el migra". your run of the mill $30,000 a year bumass cop doesnt have the authority to ask for green cards. just make sure he has an ID and hes all set. i have a friend who has a few workin for him and hes been pulled with them be4. Hell, the golf course i worked at had 15 of em and they are a HUGE rich country club. im all against supporting these immigrants, especially if they dont speaka tha english. mostly all of them have ID's though. fake or not, thats all they need. not sumthin i would go on here askin about.....big brother is WATCHING!!!!!
