Department Of Homeland Security To Eliminate No-Match Rule

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) last week published its notice of intent to rescind the Social Security No-Match Rule in the Federal Register.

The rule was due to go into effect Sept. 14 2007, but it was delayed by litigation led by United Fresh along with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, National Roofing Contractors Association, and American Nursery & Landscape Association. The lawsuit alleged that procedures such as an analysis of the law’s economic impact on small businesses, weren’t followed.

The no match letter was a paperwork shuffle anyway. Employer sends in I9. After a month or two the SSA sends a “No-Match” letter telling the employer to correct and respond in 30 to 60 days. Employer takes action after a month or so and by the time SSA has responded back the crops or job is done and the worker is gone south or moved on to another employer and the process starts all over again. With today’s technology we should be able to check a SSN with a name in a matter of seconds and alert law enforcement of anyone trying to pull a fast one on the employer. Or maybe the employer doesn’t care if the SSN doesn’t match the name. Doesn’t matter now as Obama wants to legalize all illegals never mind all the people out of work.

I am a vegetable farmer and I have not had an American apply for a job in 25 years . Who will do this work? American people want inexpensive food and we need labor to provide it. Lets get the story straight please.

Considering unemployment is so high i havn’t got americans lining up to start work at 6am. They won’t even line up at starbucks that early. How else will the work get done. Increase border security and ease working restrictions, surely every tax and social security dollar counts right now!!

I put out a “help wanted” sign out in front of my farm and got 2 drunks and 10 twelve and 13 year olds to apply. That won’t get my blueberries picked in a timely and effecient manner. We need our migrant workers.

I know Americans have become lazy when it comes to work. I remember standing on the corner with the migrants at the age of 14 waiting for the farmer to come get us and take us to the pickle or asparagus fields. Had many good days of work with money in my pocket. I would work all year from crop to crop until the winter. What if we started talking to our politicians about giving some sort of incentive to farmers and american unemployed to work in the fields and orchards. Maybe tax breaks on the labor cost. Tax breaks on health care and workers comp. For the worker how about not taxing the income until the person hits a certain level. Todays ag workers get paid a lot more than I did. Also would like the piece work to come back without the state saying you have to make up the difference if the worker doesn’t pick at minimum wage rate. Not exactly certain what to do about the off season though. I don’t have all the details but I think we can come up with a solution if we start looking. Let’s find a better way than what we have now.
