This article does not state this but the Same company (Ironco) was at a job fair offering a starting pay at $13 per hour (with zero experience)...couldn't find many takers. I can post link to the other article tonight when I get home...For now you can read about his solution...

Quote:
When the economy turns around, Sheridan Bailey figures he has an ace in the hole if his Phoenix-based Ironco Enterprises needs to hire employees quickly.

However, those workers likely won't be from the Valley. Bailey plans to use a steel fabricator in Tijuana, Mexico.

The reason: Arizona's employer sanctions law

there are 3 to 4 MILLION LEGAL farm/ag workers who are permitted to enter the US each year and that number is being increased!

and I grow my own (CLEAN & SAFE)... veggies and such.

Americans have been working on farms for generations.. we don't need OR
want illegals!

Legals are more than welcome!
THE REST OF YOU... GET THE **** OUT!

I would like a simple health examination to insure our produce is free from blood born pathogens. Is this too much to ask our government? Right now they are too busy stealing all our money to worry about health standards. Shucks.

Ironco, which worked on downtown Phoenix's Convention Center and Arizona State University's dorms, is among a handful of Arizona-based companies that are considering exporting work to Mexico or are exporting work to Mexico as they adapt to the Legal Arizona Workers Act that took effect Jan. 1.
In other words, if they can't hire cheap "illegal" labor here, they will move operations to Mexico and hire their cheap labor there. Americans should add this unethical company to their list of companies to boycott. Good riddance!

From the article
Although some companies are exporting jobs, an overwhelming majority of small businesses in Arizona say the employer sanctions law has had no impact on them, according to a recent survey. Even fewer businesses are saying the law has had a negative impact, an Arizona Small Business Association survey said.

============

And any Ag Company that moves it to Mexico is committing suicide. The latest E-coli and Salmonella news has crippled the growers in Mexico because of the shoddy practices. It was killing it in the US too until they found more proof it was coming from Mexico.

the Mexican people will have a job without Ice hanging over their heads.

I suppose you wouldn't mind if they ship your job to Mexico as well. Is there ANYTHING you like about the USA?

If these companies can't find people to do the jobs here, what do you expect them to do?

It’s not that they can’t find people here; they simply can’t find them for the cheap rates they have grown to love. It’s nothing but greed, and greed will lead to the demise of this country. This is the same excuse they used for annihilating our manufacturing industries by outsourcing to China. GREED, GREED, GREED!
