I think we also need to give serious consideration to giving a tax credit to
employers for hiring illegal immigrants. Many of these people are destitute and
desperate for a job. Many of them have started families since coming to the
U.S., and now have children who are US citizens. Most illegals are trying their
best to eke out a living so that they can stay in this country. If we are
serious about supporting the Utah Compact, -- by not wanting to separate
families of illegal immigrants, -- we need to do something to incentivize
employers to give these people a break. Giving a tax credit to employers who
hire illegal aliens would do just that.
Sounds good to me!
Done properly, this could be a great idea. It's certainly worth a try.But it might also need some help. Many homeless have serious problems
with drugs, alcohol, or mental issues that could make it very difficult for an
employer who is willing to give them a chance.Could some kind of
counseling or other support be included in the package?
Not sure how feasible it is, but it is a great idea and should be tried. Also.
how about a special tax credit for hiring someone already unemployed and on
government assistance. Incentives to cut government spending.
