Illegal Workforce Punishment

Those convicted of harboring illegal aliens and using them for commercial gain are increasingly facing charges and even jail time.  In Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in 2011, defendants were charged in an illegal worker scheme involving aliens from mostly former Soviet countries who were supplied to hotels as housekeeping personnel.  The defendants received prison sentences ranging from three to five years each for their participation, which included receiving $1.50 kickbacks from each employee’s hourly wage and collecting rent and fees for the illegals’ residence and transportation to and from the hotels.
