Nine ( Illegal aliens from Mexico)Immigrants Arrested in Raid File Lawsuit Against Wal-Mart
By STEVEN GREENHOUSE
Published: November 9, 2003( yes I know this was five years ago , which shows how little we have won. Five years ago, most Americans were just waking up to what was going on with The Invasion)
Nine Mexican immigrants ( Illegal aliens)who worked as janitors at Wal-Marts in New Jersey sued the company on Wednesday, accusing Wal-Mart and its cleaning contractors of failing to pay overtime, withhold taxes and make required workers’ compensation contributions.(they come here illegally , steal jobs, and get arrested for being illegal and then have the nerve to file a lawsuit?)
The plaintiffs, who face deportation for being in the country illegally, also accuse Wal-Mart and its contractors of discriminating against them by giving them lower wages and fewer benefits than other workers because of their national origin.
The nine Mexicans were among 250 people arrested in an Oct. 23 federal immigration raid on 60 Wal-Mart stores in 21 states.
The lawsuit, the first filed by immigrants arrested in the raid, said Wal-Mart should be held accountable for its contractors’ wage and hour violations.
The plaintiffs have asked Wal-Mart and its contractors to pay more than $200,000 in back pay they say they are owed for overtime. The nine say they worked seven days a week, at least 56 hours a week, and were not paid time and a half for overtime hours, those over 40 a week. The immigrants say they were paid $350 to $500 a week.
The lawsuit said that Wal-Mart, ”knowingly and with the intention to defraud the United States government and the plaintiffs and in order to save money on cleaning service contract contractors,” employed certain cleaning contractors, ”with full knowledge” that these contractors would pay the illegal immigrants far less than they would have paid legal workers.
”Wal-Mart must have known about these violations,” said Gilberto Garcia, the immigrants’ lawyer, who filed the lawsuit on Wednesday in Monmouth County Superior Court in Freehold, N.J. ”If these people are going to work at Wal-Marts, then Wal-Mart and its contractors should abide by the labor laws.”
Mona Williams, vice president of Wal-Mart for communications, said on Wednesday that Wal-Mart did not know its contractors and subcontractors used illegal immigrants. She also said Wal-Mart did not know about the overtime and other labor violations of which the
cleaning contractors are accused.
”Clearly, hungry lawyers are converging on these illegal immigrants as if they were accident victims,” Ms. Williams said. ”We have seen absolutely no evidence showing that Wal-Mart did anything wrong
.”
On Tuesday, Ms. Williams acknowledged that federal prosecutors had sent Wal-Mart a letter warning that it faced a grand jury investigation about illegal immigrants employed in its stores.
Ms. Williams said Wal-Mart was not liable for the misdeeds alleged against its contractors, noting that Wal-Mart has long insisted that its contractors obey the law. ”If you are scrambling to make a buck at someone else’s expense, who would you sue, an unknown cleaning contractor or the country’s largest corporation?” she asked.
The lawsuit says the managers at two Wal-Marts where the plaintiffs worked, in Old Bridge and Piscataway, N.J., knew that the workers were illegal immigrants.
