Boo effin who. Cry me a river Chipotle.

"Cost advantage the company has held in the past"? You mean, only because you hired people who are here illegally and you don't have to pay them a fair wage? Now that you will have to actually hire people who are authorized to work in this country your labor costs "could rise"? Welcome to the real world. I guess it felt good breaking the law for so long and making too much $$$, didn't it?

I have only eaten at Chipotle maybe 3 times my entire life and was not that impressed with the food. I went to one in North Andover, MA by where I used to work and half the staff didn't speak English. I asked for a lid for my salad and the person had no clue what I was saying. That was it for me.

I am not saying it is fair. I am saying that people seem to have a problem with places that hire mostly white people and they have no problem speaking out against them.

But when it is the other way around, it is called "diversity".

Its just ridiculous. Most other immigrants who come to America learn English pretty fast.

They say that the illegals take the jobs that Americans don't want. How many Americans are going to turn down a salary of $44,000 a year?

I see it as an issue. I get sick to death of being forced to speak Spanish in order to conduct business, and almost every single restaurant around here, FF or not, has a 100% Hispanic staff behind the counter or in the kitchen. I don't know how these places get away with it to be honest. To me it is, at best, clear-cut discrimination in favor of Hispanics. I thought that was illegal.
