Job Openings, Apartment Available

Here is a link to a posting at It's Only Key West that updates an investigative report in the Key West Citizen by Stacey Rodriguez last Thursday.

This may be a particularly egregious example of what's wrong with the system of employing illegal workers in the service and hospitality industry here. Between the undocumented who are victims, and the undocumented who are victimizers (as in the T-Shirt shops, some clothing stores, and a few other stores which all share the attribute of ripping off tourists; for no one but tourists shop in these places), the city has a problem that isn't going to go away until some effective action is taken against such "businesses". Meanwhile, they will continue to tarnish the city's image.
