Can an employer not pay someone? What if they are undocumented? Posted on February 09, 2011

I was at a friend's house for dinner and a third party, whom I do not know, had been drinking and started bragging. He said that he had to pay for a vacation and a new car for his daughter so he could not meet payroll at his restaurant. He thought it was pretty funny that the employees were all undocumented workers who could not complain. He said he pays them what he can when he can but cannot afford to pay full wages weekly since the economy is so poor. Who can I tell about this? First that he staffs his business with undocumented workers and second that his is so disrespectful as to take advantage of these poor people who have no voice?
