“Safety violations”?!? To ask the question is to answer it.

That’s the beauty of illegal alien labor. They don’t complain to the authorities and they are disposable. You can bet your booty that there won’t be any angry family members filing lawsuits and going before the cameras. Indeed, his family will likely never know what happened to him and he’ll end up unclaimed in the morgue.

He got outsourced. They sent his job to the Bronx.

“The profits are privatized and the costs are socialized”.

Those who make the big money off their backs live in the gated communities. They don’t feel the consequences unless their limo is rear-ended or their next-door neighbor realizes how much money he can make renting out his McMansion to fifty illegals...

"...when police responded to a 911 call of an unconscious man."

I think they buried the lead. Headline should be something like, "Unconscious Man Calls 911!"

Hey! More power to them. I hope there’s an army of “legal entrepreneurs” ready to pounce every time an illegal alien laborer gets dinged.

The more expensive it becomes to hire illegals...

If it’s New York, he was probably Dominican or Puerto Rican, though I’ve known a bunch of guatemaltecos, costaricenses, nicaraguenses, colombianos, and salvedoreños there as well.

I remember that. I also remember the story of the Irishman who drowned in a huge vat of whiskey. He fell in five times. His friends kept pulling him out, but damned if he didn’t keep falling in again.

On the bright side, the mortician didn’t need any embalming fluid for his body.
