TOMORROW THE HOUSE JUDICIARY SUBCOMMITTEE A IS MEETING AT 10:00 A.M. AND HB 36 will be discussed. It is anticipated to be voted upon by the Committee.
BIG PROBLEM EVOLVED TODAY. SEE ATTACHMENT
OUR REPRESENTATIVES HAVE AMENDED THE E-VERIFY BILL GENERATED MAY 31, 2010 AT 4:53 P.M.
I DRAW YOUR ATTENTION TO PAGE FOUR SECTION 64-26 VERIFICATION OF EMPLOYEES WORK AUTHORIZATION.
Item C – The requirement to register and participate in E-Verify to verify the work
authorization of new employees:
DOES NOT APPLY TO THE FOLLOWING:
- An entity that employs seasonal temporary employees for 90 or fewer days during a 12
consecutive month period is exempt from this section.
- A company that employs 24 or fewer employees in the State is exempt from this
- An independent contractor hired by the employer. (1099)
Seasonal workers are allowed to enter our country under multiple visa’s for harvesting of
crops, etc. Section 1 basically allows employer to hire someone for 90 days, lay them off, hire another person, lay them off, etc. In Southern California during the defense budget cuts, we referred to this as the 90 DAY SWINGING DOOR SYNDROME. Any individual illegally in our country can go from one employer to another and never have to submit to E-Verify.
A company that employs 24 or fewer employees??? How many contractors do you know with less than 24 employees? These are basically the small contractors taking away
AMERICAN JOBS in construction and other industries.
An independent Contractor hired = 1099 – self employed. National News media
pointed out this problem several years ago investigating US Home’s construction sites. Electricians, plumbers, tile setters, roofing contractors, framers, carpet installers – all were hiring illegal’s to work for them and the men admitted on NATIONAL TV they were “self employed” – operating on 1099’s.
SO OUR POLITICIANS HAD A GOOD E-VERIFY BILL SPONSORED BY REPRESENTATIVE CLEVELAND AND THEN BEHIND THE SCENES POLITICS BEGIN AND WE GET THIS TYPE OF BILL – ONE WE THOUGHT WE WOULD BE SUPPORTING YET NOW WITH THE REVISIONS THEY HAVE TOTALLY “HOOD WINKED” WE CITIZENS.
I SPENT TODAY CALLING ALL MY REPRESENTATIVES ON THE JUDICIAL SUBCOMMITTEE TELLING THEM I SUPPORTED HB 36 AND ENOURAGED THEM TO VOTE ON IT TOMORROW MORNING AND THEN AT 4:53 P.M. they generate this amended bill????- SELLING US DOWN THE RIVER BIG TIME.
WHY BOTHER WITH THIS LEGISLATION IF YOU ARE GOING TO LET CONTRACTOR’S EMPLOYING LESS THAN 24 PEOPLE OUT OF THE E-VERIFY SYSTEM – THOSE ARE THE ONES HIRING A LARGE PERCENTAGE OF INDIVIDUALS ILLEGALLY WORKING CONSTRUCTION JOBS AND OTHER SERVICE INDUSTRY JOBS.
IF I UNDERSTAND CORRECTLY SPEAKER TILLIS HAD A MEETING FRIDAY WITH THE CHAMBER OF COMMERCE AND AGRI BUSINESS INDIVIDUALS – I CAN ONLY ANTICIPATE THESE CHANGES CAME OUT OF THAT MEETING – BUT DID SPEAKER TILLIS ASK ANY OF US TO ATTEND THAT MEETING TO GET “OUR SIDE OF THE ISSUE”????
Judiciary Subcommittee A Chairman is Rep. Blust.
Members are M. Alexander, Blackwell, Crawford, Daughtry, Faison (he’s got to be loving this revision), Hall, Howard, Jackson, Killian, McGrady, Mills, Randleman and Ross
(she is jumping up and down for joy!)
Go to NC LEG website and you can find their phone numbers. I cannot attend the meeting
tomorrow at 10:00 a.m. but believe me I will be emailing the committee members clarifying my call today was for the OLD bill – little did I know they were drafting this revision.
