A number of Oregon business owners are teaming up to fight a plan to make sure their employees are in this country legally. One of those business leaders was on the Lars Larson show Wednesday. Bill Perry of the Oregon Restaurant Association: “There’s not enough people in the workforce to do the service jobsm, as long as our population is generally getting older. “ New legislation will require all employers to use E-Verify to confirm their workers are in the country legally. Perry says businesses couldn’t deal with that kind of employee loss. “When you look at all the different industries that would be subject to the same thing, know to take that many people out…” Lars Larlon: “You’re telling me thatif somebody offers $20 an hour, there isn’t an American out that that will wash dishes?” Perry: “I think they would do it for about a week, and then they’d quit.” Perry say that comprehensive immigration reform is needed, but not a system that removes that many workers at once.  The Lars Larson show is heard weekdays on KBND from 12:30 to 3 p.m.
