Ok, here it comes: Anybody have to take off today due to the illegal immigrants protesting? I have to believe that due to the technical nature of our trade, the demanding licensing requirements, and the ultimate liability of our work, that we are not "infiltrated" with the hoards of newly arrived illegal workers. To be honest, I have not seen or encountered any EC's that have resorted to hiring the illegals , but my scope of vision is rather limited. I have no idea what is going on across the country concerning this subject. The big employers are coming under scrutiny now. I was told that as a subcontractor for a home improvement company, all my employees have to now have drug tests, credit checks, and a background investigation. This does not impact me as I am the only employee, but it has caused quite a panic among the floor and kitchen installers. How does this current political situation affect electrical contractors?
