Uniform manufacturer Cintas has started checking its workers’ Social Security numbers against the federal government’s database and is now laying off workers whose numbers are coming up invalid — an indicator that they’re not allowed to work in the United States.
One of the workers complained about the move to the press.
Cintas has notified dozens of other employees at the company’s four Bay Area plants asking them to clear up similar mismatches, several workers said. The employees are confused and fear losing their jobs, said Adilene Sandoval, who works in the company’s South San Francisco plant and has received one of the warnings.
“I have nothing to fix – this is my name, this is my number,” said Sandoval, who has worked for Cintas for more than five years and did not want to comment on her immigration status. [emphasis added]
I’ve got a news flash for you: Adilene Sandoval is in the country illegally.
The pool for when the San Francisco wackos will start picketing Cintas’ manufacturing plant is now open. I’ve got this Saturday at 9 a.m.
