Where did all the hispanic workers go?

A golf course superintendent in the southern U.S., who asked not to be identified, says that when his state adopted E-Verify it had an almost immediate and detrimental impact on his facility. Now hardly any Hispanic workers apply for jobs.

“It was commonplace for a guy to show up with a green card or a license and social security card,” he says, which was enough proof for him and other superintendents in the region.

He points out that they weren’t trained to detect forgeries.

“If they had the proper paperwork, we’d hire them,” he state

Are you noticing fewer available Hispanic workers to hire on your golf maintenance team?
