the other day i walked into a pollo loco (in LA) and saw a couple of signs posted at the register/counter that proudly proclaimed the use of E-verify by pollo loco.

it was a first for me. and i sort of liked it. i had never seen something like this before. i wonder if this will be the new norm (similar to the letter grades given out by the county food inspector)?

has anyone seen these signs before. does it want to make you patronize these establishments more?

I haven't seen them yet but would sure welcome it. I would honor them in conjunction with the other inspection stickers of a passing grade for a restaurant.

By law any company that uses E-verify has to post a sign where it can be clearly seen by potential applicants.

interesting. so its somewhat of a warning. i wonder who is supposed to benefit from this? what is the purpose of putting the signs there? is it so the the employer does not waste time and resources with the illegals, or is it so that the illegal does not put themselves in a legal predicament...

We all benefit from it!

The purpose is to let illegals they are not welcome to apply to work in violation of US law, that all applicants are checked for status, and that only legitimate applicants will be considered. I hope this adds to making them as uncomfortable as possible and further drain any hope or prospect of them having a life here in the US.

They're already in a predicament - they're criminals!

My son applied at probably 30 Taco Bell and McDonalds combined in San Diego county last year. Every single one said they used E-verify. I did see an upward trend in Americans and teens working fast food jobs last time I visited, but I sometimes doubt the use of E-verify because majority of workers still SEEMED to be illegal. But like I said, I saw an upward trend. Hopefully it's getting the message out to illegals like workin_hard said.

It's a win-win situation.

The employer saves time and money on legal fees.

The illigals save their a$$es for just alittle bit longer.

And "yes", the sign is a warning,"THIS BUSINESS IS EQUIPPED WITH E-VERIFY". like a secuity alarm system in a building.
