Mobile County Commission to vote on penalties for companies hiring illegal aliens

MOBILE, Ala. -- The Mobile County Commission is set to vote Monday on a policy to penalize companies that hire illegal workers on county public works projects. Violators would be barred from bidding on such projects for two years.

Companies "providing more than $50,000 or more in labor, materials or supplies for a public works contract" would have to make employee records available for inspection and would be subject to random audits, according to the policy.

They would violate the policy if they had three or more illegal workers assigned to one or more of the contracts. Their subcontractors would also be required to have workers who are citizens or legal immigrants.

The policy would take effect Oct. 1.

Contractors could avoid running afoul of the policy by either:

-- Hiring workers through a local, state or federal work program, the state of Alabama Employment Service or a third party employer that verifies Social Security numbers and the legal status of workers.

-- Making use of federal electronic verification of worker eligibility, also known as the e-Verify Program.

I'm not against people coming here for a better life but they must be legal.I hope this is just a beginning for other goverment agencies to start policing themselves instead of hoping on the feds to do it.


I agree, why 50K?????

Why not $20.00 or $100.00?

A lot of those guys will not see $50k in a year because they get ran off or run when the heat comes around, with the $50k, they have a huge cushion which kind of defeats the purpose of this.

With a minimum of $20.00 or $100.00 then they can't even work the guy for a full day or two. That is what you want, a lot of these guys will work for a few days then come back next week, it happens here a lot.

I don't employ them but know of companies that do.

In the past, they would call immigration to come on Friday so they would not have to pay them for the week of work, that is cruel but that is the mentality of some of these guys. I heard of one guy that was doing that .....until the guy came back with some of his cousins and they got his money and some good equipment and then some besides giving the owner an a** whoopin. What comes aroung goes around.

50k is the limit for bidding jobs out.You also have to be licensed after 50 k or anything above 50k requires a state license.


Isn't that the guy with the tent city and makes the dumba** inmates wear pink to show how stupid they really are???

If they don't like it, too bad, stay out of jail.

I think that it is a good idea, more places should do the same thing.

You have a lot of criminals in jails that might not be there if they knew that they would be outside living in tents and earning their keep. Maybe a lot would still not care but at least they might think before committing another crime when out.
