Bill Goes After The Employers Who Hire Undocumented Workers
Please Contact Your State Representatives Today
Assemblyman Tom Harman (R-Huntington Beach) has introduced legislation to prevent employers from deducting as a business expense the wages paid to an individual who is in this country without legal documentation.
This bill is bad for all California businesses, big and small, because it attacks employers by not allowing them to deduct as business expenses the cost of hiring our undocumented brothers and sisters. This bill has the same affect as raising taxes on businesses and giving the money to the state government in turn reducing the amount of money in private hands which is needed for economic growth.
Heretofore, our undocumented brothers and sisters have contributed immensely to the California economy and the American economy as a whole. Indeed, every Californian enjoys a higher standard of living today and much of that is because of the contributions made by undocumented workers, who are treated like criminals and not allowed to enjoy basic civil privileges such as driving, collecting Social Security benefits, even though they contribute like everyone else, or have access to basic health services available to the working poor.
So called "employer sanctions" will not do anything to stop business’ demand for labor and in no way will punish employers who hire undocumented workers. This bill will only create a tax that will in turn be passed on to consumers who will be forced to pay higher prices for goods and services. In addition, this bill could have a stagnating affect on the California economy as a whole. A stagnant economy always has a greater impact on our Raza as we are some of the first to feel it, it hits us harder and we’re among the last to recover from a stuck in the mud economy.
Please call or write your CA Assembly member and state Senator today and ask them to defeat AB 2680. You can call, send a fax or e-mail.
