Dunkin' dumps store owners for hiring undocumented workers

The world famous doughnut maker Dunkin', outraged that some franchises are not using the required E-Verify system to make sure its workers are documented, has moved to oust the owners and take over the restaurants.

According to several reports, the Massachusetts-based breakfast and lunch restaurant, which recently changed its name from Dunkin' Donuts, has sued to stop those franchise owners from operating.

The most recent suits were filed in Delaware and Pennsylvania, “amid what appears to be a crackdown on franchisees employment verification practices,” according to Restaurant Business.

A post from Americans for Legal Immigration PAC, said, “Each of the lawsuits is similar. They each said that Dunkin’ reviewed employment verification documents and practices, found violations at the subject franchisee companies, terminated the operators’ franchise agreements and then swiftly moved to remove the franchisees from the restaurants.”

And the Center for Immigration Studies, citing a Law360 report, said, “the corporation filed a suit against multiple former franchisees ‘with locations in Pennsylvania and Delaware’ stating that they were ‘sullying the coffee chain's reputation ... [when they] engaged in illegal hiring practices in breach of their contracts.’"

It added, “The franchisees had failed to use the E-Verify program as their contracts required, according to DD's lawyers. E-Verify is a government-provided system that informs employers whether or not a worker is in legal status. There is no charge for its usage.”

The doughnut, sandwich, and coffee firm has said it won’t comment on pending legislation.

The administration has put on a big push for corporate America to use the E-Verify system that checks on the legal working status of potential workers.

Good! Hire Americans.

Of course liberals prefer you hire illegals, but are fucking confused about who will pay them their fucking taxes they love so much.

I liked Dunkin for a long time; now I like them even more.

There's a burger place "The Habit" which hires illegals in my town; I won't go there usually.

There's a funky joint called Fosters Freeze which has burgers and I will try them there rather than the Habit for this very reason.

Of course I don't eat many burgers anyway.

This is excellent. Home Depot also has my business now that the founder is dedicating his fortune towards Trump getting re-elected.

Should we be surprised that a private business cares more about citizenship than the government? No.. the answer is no.
