This is a good start but it might be 100% Mc Donalds fault if..
Illegals are using false information and Mc D's has no way to verify?

The company pleaded guilty in federal court in Las Vegas to conspiracy to encourage and induce an alien's unlawful residence in the United States and aiding and abetting an alien to remain in the country, the department said.

The company's director of operations also pleaded guilty to aiding and abetting an alien to remain in the country.

And the former vice president of Mack Associates pleaded guilty to inducing an illegal alien to remain in the United States and faces a possible sentence of up to five years in prison and a 250,000 dollar five.

About 30 of the illegal workers have returned to their native countries while the rest were allowed to stay in the United States until the case closes.

McDonald's franchisee fined 1 mln dlrs for hiring illegal immigrants



Yeeeeeeee Hawwwww . . . . the hammer continues to fall. Wow I could get used to repeating that phrase. I'm lovin this!


Good one

Let's be fair: One Million is not chump change. It is a significant fine.

AND, this guy will be under a microscope from here on out - I don't know what his franchise agreement provides but, I would not be surprised if he isn't also getting some "threats" from Micky D's national

I doubt that he's getting any threats from Mickey D's Headquarters. As a matter of fact it would not surprise me if they weren't ordered to stop hiring Americans because obeying the law cuts into profits. I work in downtown Chicago and there are multiple McDonald locations on both the east and west sides. No matter which one I have gone into the only people I have ever seen working in them are hispanics. They put the (semi) English speakers on the registers and the rest of the staff mops the floors and cooks the food.

It's been months since I have gone into a McDonalds or Burger King because I have no doubt that the majority of their employees are illegal aliens.

The article specifically said they were supplying these false identities. AND even if these illegals were just presenting them, there are ways to verify them. I can do it sitting here at home.

One more reason to never eat there again. It might not hurt MDs but I do believe in boycotting a business when they demonstrate this kind of behavior. I am changing banks as well because I don't care for Bank of Americas way of rolling out the red carpet for illegals.
