Well, boo hoo. Did we miss the ESL class where they taught the word "illegal" in the first place? What the hell makes you think that you should have the same rights as those of lawful residents, if you crashed the gate in the first place? Why should you go to the head of the line, why should you get paid extra, when there are others who came here honestly who have been shipped home because the paperwork was slow? (Scroll down to the link.)
[Former Cafe Express employee Daniel] Olivares said he was risking deportation to speak up for himself and his former co-workers. He said he has not looked for other work because he's afraid of being caught by the authorities.
"I'm not safe anymore," said Olivares, who has been in the country 14 years.
Go back home, wait your damned turn, and come back the legal way -- the right way.
To be fair, Olivares had paid $25 per weekly paycheck to pay for legal fees, to further the process so that he might become a legal resident, and the legal firm which screwed up his paperwork owes him all that cash back, but now, let's talk about Wendy's degree of liability... If a company can get sued for actually obeying the law, then there's something seriously wrong, here.
I think Wendy's could use our support. I'm heading out to Galesburg to give them my "Huzzah!" and to get me a Frosty.
