The link on Yahoo’s front page is: Fast food chain’s immigration conundrum
Chipotle Mexican Grill has a lot going for it — an upscale burrito concept, a hip and eco-friendly image, expansion plans galore and a 500 percent-plus stock price gain in just over two years.
And then it has something not going its way — a federal crackdown on its immigrant labor force that has so far forced Chipotle to fire hundreds of allegedly illegal workers in the state of Minnesota, perhaps more than half its staff there.
Reading the story, I can’t quite figure out what the “conundrum” is. I guess they mean “should they or should they not hire illegal workers?”
That’s like Murdoc’s “conundrum” of “should I steal that nice car?”
Longnecker and other experts said restaurant owners are attracted to illegal laborers because they work hard, are loyal and will go the extra mile to hold down a job.
Got nothing to do with the fact that they are cheap, does it?
The sob stories in the article admits they’re in the country illegally and that they used false documents including driver’s licenses, Social Security cards, and residence permits, to get their jobs. Now that they’ve been fired “without warning,” they’re in dire straits.
Murdoc’s crying his freaking eyes out.
