Congressional inaction on U.S. immigration policy has frustrated Americans from all walks of life. But it’s especially frustrating for people in the restaurant industry — including in Las Vegas, where food service is a major cog in the

region’s economy. ¶ “Today’s immigration system is broken,” officials with the National Restaurant Association said. immigration, Continued on page 15

In 1981, the Las Vegas City Council approved a $157,000 beautifi cation project for eight downtown intersections. Workers decorated the streets with colorful ceramic tiles that created abstract gaming motifs.

But just a few weeks after installation, the tiles began cracking under heavy traffi c.

Pictured here on Oct . 21, 1981, Stewart Construction Co. employees begin removing the troublesome tiles at Fremont

Street and Las Vegas Boulevard . The city and the contractor split the $80,000 cost of removing the tiles and replacing them with gold-colored concrete.

The beautifi cation project was a fl op, but a similar effort could succeed today as several blocks of Fremont Street now are a pedestrian walkway.

Aug. 16 - Aug. 22

What is the most challenging part of your job?

Adapting to the trends of busi-ness and being able to strategically forecast. The Las Vegas consumer has changed over the years. When I first came to Las Vegas, conven-tions sometimes would be four or five days long, and every restaurant in town was very busy. Today, major conventions may peak at one or two days, and customers’ spending habits have changed. A certain trade show that entertained in fine restaurants around town five or six years ago now may do much of its entertaining in nightclubs or events centers. This has changed my role in recent years; I spend a lot of time working on the business instead of in the business.

How has the local restaurant industry evolved over your 15-year career?

The fascinating thing about restau-rants is that for as much has changed, there is just as much that has re-mained the same. Las Vegas contin-ues to evolve as a dining destination. It is clear the city is attracting just as many, if not more, people for the entertainment, food and beverage experience as for the casino/gam-ing experience. There has been so much growth over the past 15 years, it is almost hard to remember when the major Strip properties were only one tower and what the Strip was like pre-Cosmopolitan and CityCenter.

That growth spurred an evolution in and of itself that can be likened to the fall of the tablecloth and the rise of the burger. In addition to growth, the restaurant industry changed due to technology advancement. It is es-sential with so many offerings in Las Vegas to maintain your relevance on-line, whether it be social media, email marketing, search engine optimiza-tion, maps, online reservations or on-line concierge services.

How did you begin your restau-rant career?

I was born into food. Growing up in an Italian-American family in Ohio,

I grew up at the apron strings of my grandmother, and food was the cen-ter of every gathering and event. My father always operated restaurants and bars, so I worked my way through high school making pizza and pasta.

You manage two Michelin 1-star restaurants; are there any low-key places where you dine on your days off?

I enjoy going around town and checking out what is happening and what is new. I do not know that it can be characterized as “low-key,” but it would not be unusual for you to catch me at the bar at B&B enjoying some pasta and a bottle of wine. If I stay off the Strip, I enjoy sushi at Sen of Japan or a quick lunch at MTO Café.

What are you reading?

I try to start my day and end my day reading. I have a routine in the morning where I spend 30 minutes to an hour reading something new that inspires performance or a new idea. I am always looking for ways to be more effective and improve as a

leader. At night before bed is when I do some re-reading because I think every good book should be read more than once. My morning reading right now is “The Entrepreneur Roller Coaster” by Darren Hardy, and I am re-reading “Man’s Search for Mean-ing” by Viktor Frankl. It is a classic and one of my favorites.

What do you do after work?

I spend most of my time working — it is just in my blood to be involved most of the time. I still enjoy cook-ing and do quite a bit of entertaining friends at home. If I take more than one day off, I use it as an opportuni-ty to get out of town, unwind and of course enjoy the dining scene outside of Las Vegas, wherever my travels may take me.

Blackberry, iPhone or Android?

Android. I miss the days of pencil and paper.

Describe your management style.

Seek out incremental improve-ments in everything we do from ev-

eryone in our organization. I try to work with and inspire my team to always improve but never lose focus on the customer and the value of the experience we deliver. If your ser-vice staff is improving while your cooks are improving and your chef and management are improving, it is a winning formula. You are a student all your life in this industry, and there is always room for improvement.

What is your dream job, outside of your current field?

I could not imagine myself com-pletely outside of industry, but I enjoy teaching and mentoring staff. I be-lieve something that is missing from the industry overall is a focused stan-dardized training for service. There are college courses on hospitality and culinary courses, but there is not ex-tensive training for service and hos-pitality that I believe are essential to the success of any restaurant. One of my favorite quotes is from Rabindra-nath Tagore: “I slept and dreamt that life was joy. I awoke and saw that life was service. I acted and, behold, ser-vice was joy.”

Whom do you admire and why?

The person I most admire in the industry is Danny Meyer of Union Square Hospitality Group. Who would have thought a restaurateur would be named in Time Magazine as one of the 100 most influential people in the world?

What is your biggest pet peeve?

Cellphones in the dining room, when the customer is consumed by the mobile phone and does not engage in the dining experience. It is hard to be at your best when the people you are performing for are not where they are.

What is something people might not know about you?

I am a fan of poetry and get a great deal of inspiration from the great po-ets. I enjoy all of them, from Rumi to William Blake, Maya Angelou to Mary Oliver.

Q&A with joseph mArsco

‘You are a student all of your life in this industry’

Joseph Marsco enjoys a cigar at the cigar lounge at Andre’s. Marsco says the most

rewarding part of his job is hearing feedback from guests about what a memorable

evening they had at one of his restaurants. “It is the core of what we do — create

memories,” he said. (steve MArcus/stAff)

Joseph Marsco was just 26 years old when he joined Andre Rochat as general manager of Alizé, the French fine-dining restaurant on the 56th floor of the Palms. “The energy that was at the Palms was like nothing I had ever experienced and made for very excit-ing times,” Marsco said. Today, he is president and managing partner of Alizé and Andre’s Restaurant and Lounge at Monte Carlo, both Michelin-star restaurants.

Describe your business.

We specialize in preparing students for selective college ad-missions by assisting them with developing the academic skills necessary for collegiate success. Our role is not to work with fail-ing students to help them pass. We focus on providing services to highly motivated students who want or need academic en-richment, making above-average students into excellent students.

What makes your business unique?

We pride ourselves on building and maintaining suc-cessful long-term relationships with students and their families. In fact, many of our clients are younger siblings of clients who now attend or graduated from excellent colleges and professional schools. Our student clients enjoy a relationship with us that may begin as early as middle school and remains strong throughout college and beyond.

What’s the most important part of your job?

In order for my guidance to be effective, I need to form a productive, encouraging and trusting relationship with each of my students. I get to know them by interviewing them frequently about personal goals, ideas and ambi-tions. I can spend hours discussing current events, book themes, personal life stories and other relevant topics to help students discover appropriate and effective top-ics for college essays and personal statements. Students need to find their voices and learn how better to describe their personal histories, goals and college plans.

What areas do students struggle with most and why?

Although math tutoring is probably the most lucrative small business in the Las Vegas commu-nity, local students struggle most with critical reading and original writing. Strong reading and writ-ing skills are required for a suc-cessful college experience.

To prepare well for college, all students should read at least one book per week during summer

breaks and one or more books each month during the school year — in addition to any required reading for ongoing class-es. Comprehension, focus and speed can only improve with daily reading. As I am fond of saying to our students: Great artists and musicians practice their craft daily; your reading requires the same attention. A well read student can exam-ine diverse ideas and experiences, develop intellectual curi-osity and write persuasively. These are the foundations for pursuing and securing a great education.

What are students’ biggest fears about attending


Money. Most students and families worry about the ex-orbitant cost of attending college; too many hope for, or expect, scholarships to cover the entire expense. Unfor-tunately, families must better understand that a college education is an investment; therefore, they must expect to pay something. For lower-income families with in-comes below $60,000, colleges offer huge sums of money to outstanding students. For middle- and higher-income families, the price for students to attend college out of state may be significant. Whatever the case, planning for college must start at an early age. The more prepared the student is for college success (hint: reading/enrich-ment), along with effective financial planning from the family, the better chance one has to get a college degree.

A guide to asset protection in Nevada

N evada is a leader in providing trust and related fiduciary services nationally. Increas-ingly, the state is becoming a

global center for such services. To a large degree, this is attributable to its favorable trust laws, which provide valuable benefits for Nevadans and attract capital from nonresidents.

What are the benefits Nevada law offers? Dynasty trust. Under the standard version of the Uni-

form Statutory Rule Against Perpetuities that many states adhere to, trusts generally can have a lifespan in the range of 90 years. But under Nevada’s version of USRAP, one can last 365 years. The assets can grow in the trust, with future generations paying no federal estate taxes on their deaths and receiving distributions along the way as the need arises.

Directed trust. Many states share the traditional view that the investment and distributional functions of a trust cannot be separated. The appeal of a directed trust is that family members, or their investment advisers, can retain control of investment decisions rather than having to accept the decisions of the trustee.

Nevada asset protection trust. Almost every other state that has enacted asset protection trust legislation recognizes certain exceptions, typically for claims by cur-rent and former spouses and for pre-existing tort creditors. In Nevada, the asset protection trust is insulated even from these potential claimants. Once two years have passed from

the transfer of the assets to a self-settled asset protection trust, the assets are pro-tected from all future claims.

Trust protectors. When someone es-tablishes a dynasty trust to last for genera-

tions, a trust protector is appointed. But there are questions regarding the authority of the trust protector, the duty of the trustee to obey the trust protector and the liability of the trustee for the acts of the trust protector. Wealth hold-ers and their legal advisers want a statute that responds to these issues precisely and without doubt. So do trustees. Nevada offers that to a degree few other states do.

Tax-free trusts. Nevada has no income tax and no gift or death taxes. A trust administered in Nevada by a Nevada fiduciary may not incur income taxes, even in a state with some ties to the trust — but only if the proper steps are followed. With California tax exceeding 13 percent for the wealthiest individuals, the tax savings available through the Nevada incomplete non-grantor trust can be striking.

Decanting. There is a benefit to being able to make changes to a dynasty trust to address changing circum-stances without jeopardizing its favorable tax benefits. Nevada recently enacted changes to the law that empowers the trustee to decant. Much like wine, the trust assets are “poured” into a new trust that incorporates the desired changes.

Gordon Silver’s move leaves Hughes Center with swanky, 54,000-square-foot vacancyBy eli segallStaff Writer

With stone flooring, glass confer-ence-room walls, a private stairwell and a lounge with ventilation that sucked the cigar fumes from the room, the high-rise headquarters of law firm Gordon Silver conveyed a message: success.

It cost a lot to look that good and live that large, with monthly rental rates of about $160,000, according to the landlord.

So Gordon Silver, hollowed out by waves of defections this year, moved across town to a small, low-priced office suite, leaving a gaping hole in what’s widely viewed as Las Vegas’ top office park.

Gordon Silver in June moved out of the Hughes Center, where it rented the top three floors of a nine-story building. The roughly 54,000-square-foot office was gutted in a multimil-lion-dollar renovation not long ago, with the landlord reportedly footing much of the bill, and one lawyer says it’s a “beautiful” place that was built “to impress somebody.”

Down to a skeletal staff after nu-merous lawyers, including its name-sake leaders, quit this year, Gordon Silver now is based in a 2,883-square-foot office. The suite is tucked away on the first floor of a three-story building on Rainbow Boulevard near the U.S. 95-Summerlin Parkway interchange.

Management signed a six-month rental contract and paid the entire amount, $21,622.50, in advance.

The firm was one of the biggest ten-ants at the Hughes Center by space rented, and its move out is a big set-back for the landlords, who bought the 68-acre office park less than two years ago and have been working to fill the once-packed property.

The owners are suing Gordon Silver for unpaid rent, alleging it owes about $786,000.

Local office brokers are mixed on whether the landlord, Wall Street heavyweight the Blackstone Group, can quickly fill the vacancy.

The three floors are designed for a law firm, one broker pointed out, adding that “only a couple of users in town are big enough to take all of it.”

Generally, prospective office ten-ants have plenty of options in Las Vegas; the valley’s office market, still

bruised by the recession, has a vacan-cy rate of about 20 percent. But bro-ker Soozi Jones Walker said there is a shortage of large, contiguous spaces, and other users besides law firms flock to “dense” space, or floors with-out open bullpen areas.

The monthly rental rate in Gor-don Silver’s former building, 3960 Howard Hughes Parkway, is $2.90 per square foot, listings show. That’s above the valley average of $2.62 for Class A, or high-quality, offices and far above the average $1.91 for all space, according to Colliers Interna-tional data.

Still, the office park is a status sym-bol. It has prominent tenants, is near the Strip and McCarran International Airport, and offers a cluster of high-quality buildings.

“You’re looking for image” at the Hughes Center, said Walker, owner of Commercial Executives Real Estate Services.

Management has been trying to find one tenant for Gordon Silver’s old space, or at least a user that could take two of the floors, said Hughes Center listing broker Taber Thill, of Colliers.

The law firm left behind some fur-niture and equipment, and Thill is not sure what will happen to it all. But, he said last month, the office is in “great shape.”

He said his group has given “quite a few tours” of the space and a few par-ties “have expressed interest.”

Blackstone bought the park in Sep-

tember 2013 for $347 million. Ac-cording to Thill, the property was about 68 percent occupied at the time and was 77 percent occupied before Gordon Silver vacated.

By comparison, the park was 97.7 percent occupied in 2004, secu-rities filings show.

To boost business, Blackstone has renovated vacant suites and built a 12,000-square-foot retail plaza with lower-priced, casual dining options.

John Woo, portfolio manager for the Blackstone unit Equity Office, said Gordon Silver was “one of the larger tenants here,” and that its of-fice renovation was launched by the park’s previous owners and was near-ing completion when Blackstone took charge.

The overhaul cost more than $100 per square foot, according to Thill, or more than $5.4 million. The landlord paid a large portion of that, real estate pros said.

The offices have custom cabinets; glass-walled conference rooms; stone flooring; butler’s pantries for cater-ing; a large coffee bar; a private stair-well between the eighth and ninth floors; and a well-ventilated cigar-and-poker room, Thill said.

That room was about the same size as a regular office. It had a bar, televi-sion, couch and built-in counter with a sink, and was dubbed the “partners’ lounge,” according to a real estate broker who’d been there.

Lawyer Terry Coffing, of Marquis

Aurbach Coffing, said the offices were “some of the nicest in town.”

“As soon as you exited the eleva-tors, you knew you were visiting a successful law firm,” said Charles Van Geel, vice president of sales and leas-ing for commercial-property owner American Nevada Company.

Gordon Silver’s Mark Dzarnoski said the firm had “a pretty beautiful office” and that as a pipe smoker, he made use of the partners’ lounge.

“It was my favorite room,” he said.Known for its bankruptcy practice,

Gordon Silver had 39 local attorneys as of last spring, making it the sixth-largest in the valley at the time, ac-cording to VEGAS INC research. The firm traces its roots to the 1960s.

But its lawyers, including the firm’s namesakes, Gerald “Jerry” Gordon and Jeff Silver, for still-unconfirmed reasons, have been streaming for the exits this year.

Gordon did not respond to requests for comment for this story, and Silver referred questions to former manag-ing shareholder Greg Garman, who did not respond to an email.

Roughly 15 Gordon Silver attor-neys, including Gordon, left a few months ago to launch a new firm, Gar-man Turner Gordon. Thirteen other lawyers — seven in Las Vegas and six in Reno — bolted en masse in June for rival Dickinson Wright.

The firm was down to just two law-yers in July.

Owners of the Hughes Center sued Gordon Silver in June in Clark Coun-ty District Court, alleging in court fil-ings that the law firm’s “failure to pay rent is the result of severe financial problems, which have been further exacerbated by the departure of nu-merous partners since January 2015.”

The landlord has sought the ap-pointment of a receiver to take con-trol of the firm’s finances, property, mail and other assets, court papers show.

Dzarnoski told the landlord in May that the firm would leave the Hughes Center, and it began moving out the night of June 5. It was open by June 8 in its new office on Rainbow, the firm said in court filings.

Justice of the Peace Cynthia Cruz, of Las Vegas Township Justice Court, issued an eviction notice June 16 for Gordon Silver’s old offices.

The gordon silver law firm once occupied three floors of this office building

at 3690 Howard Hughes Parkway. The firm has moved to a 2,883-square-foot

furnished suite at 500 N. Rainbow Blvd. (sTeve maRcus/sTaff)

Rooftop solar company Sunrun is threatening to sue the state to expedite a public records request submitted last month to Gov. Brian Sandoval’s office.

In a letter to Sandoval’s office, Sunrun wrote it was “commencing appropriate legal steps” in an effort to disclose emails, texts and all other electronic corre-spondence this year between NV Energy’s 11 lobby-ists, Sandoval and executive branch staffers.

The Sandoval administration responded to Sun-run’s initial request by saying it would be difficult for the state to provide an accurate time estimate for disclosing the public documents.

“Given the broad scope of your request, the need for technological assistance and the limited resourc-es currently devoted to processing and reviewing

other public records requests, it is anticipated that it may take several weeks or more to determine what, if any, public records match the criteria you have provided,” Joe Reynolds, deputy legal counsel for Sandoval, wrote July 27 in a response to Sunrun’s open records request.

The administration’s response was made within five days of the initial request, per state law. But, because the state’s timeline in which to fulfill the re-quest lacked detail, Sunrun turned up the pressure.

Sunrun alleged cronyism between Sandoval and NV Energy when it filed the record request.

Two of the governor’s advisers are NV Energy lob-byists. And, in the 1990s, Sandoval was legal counsel for the Utility Shareholders of Nevada — an advoca-cy group that represents the interests of stockhold-ers for companies such as NV Energy.

Artist Steven Liguori was awarded almost $1.4 million for a violation of li-censing agreements for his artwork.

Liguori is the artist behind the “High Scaler,” a bronze statue memorializing the workers who built the Hoover Dam. The artwork was commissioned by Burt Hansen, owner of the High Scaler Cafe.

Liguori, represented by Hutchison & Steffen, claimed the terms of his con-tract weren’t met; a jury agreed the contract was breached.

Drivers for Uber and Lyft could be on the road in Las Vegas within a month after the Legislative Commission signed off on new rules for the ride-hailing industry recently.

“Many of us would like to see (ride-hailing) companies operating in Ne-vada by the end of August,” state Sen-ate Majority Leader Michael Roberson said.

Once a company applies to operate in the state, the transportation author-ity has 30 days to review and issue a permit, although legislators said they hoped it wouldn’t take that long.

Bruce Breslow, director of the De-partment of Business and Industry, which oversees the Nevada Transpor-tation Authority, said the applications would be processed “as soon as pos-sible, but not later than 30 days.”

Although legislators expressed con-cerns on several issues, including a proposed $300,000 application fee for ride-hailing companies (the highest fee of any state where Uber, Lyft and their competitors operate), the legisla-tive panel signed off on the regulations, clearing the way for final approval by the Nevada Transportation Authority at its Sept. 11 meeting.

If a ride-hailing company success-fully completes its application process and receives a permit before Sept. 11, it could begin operating immediately.

The guardian of the no-new-tax pledge singled out GOP congressional candidate and state Sen. Michael Roberson on Monday — highlighting an ideological divide within the Republican party in Nevada.

Grover Norquist, founder of the right-wing think tank Americans for Tax Reform, tweeted about Roberson’s vote on “29 tax hike bills in 2015. Every last one of them.” Norquist added, “Politicians face a choice. Reform government to cost less or raise taxes and keep doing everything the same as always. Reform or tax.”

Roberson, who signed the pledge in 2010, was in-fluential in passing the state’s more than $1.3 billion tax hike in the 2015 legislative session, along with other measures to bolster state spending.

Roberson did not respond to a request for com-ment.

Norquist’s tweets underscore a big question for GOP voters in the 3rd Congressional District: Will Roberson’s position on taxes influence the outcome of the race?

Some conservatives think that Roberson’s tax re-cord will hurt his candidacy.

“It will be a big issue in the campaign,” said Chuck Muth, a GOP consultant whose group Citizen Out-reach tracks the no-tax pledge in Nevada. “Not just because he voted for the tax hikes, but because he signed the taxpayer protection pledge and went against it.”

Roberson is the moderate candidate in a Repub-lican field that has three no-new-taxes candidates: Danny Tarkanian, who ran for Congress in 2010 and 2012; Annette Teijeiro, who ran for Congress in 2014, and Andy Matthews, former president of the right-leaning think tank Nevada Policy Research Institute.

Roberson is likely to be the only moderate candi-date from Nevada’s political establishment candi-date to run, making it easier for him to consolidate support, said Victor Joecks, vice president of the Nevada Policy Research Institute, which as a non-profit does not participate in campaigns. “It’s a lot harder to win if more people are splitting the con-servative side.”

immigration, from page 1

Different regions face different challenges“It makes economic sense to fix it. But if Congress and the president don’t repair the broken immigra-tion system, restaurants and other businesses will have a difficult time finding the employees they need to operate and grow. The result: slower economic growth and fewer new op-portunities.”

Robert Ansara, owner of Ricardo’s, a Mexican restaurant that has oper-ated since 1979 in Las Vegas, called immigration a huge topic, “given the percentage of immigrant workers in the food service/hospitality indus-try.” He confessed to some confusion about the government’s four-plus-decade approach to immigration.

“All of those 40 years are punctu-ated by this administration’s attempt to change the law,” Ansara said.

In November, President Barack Obama announced a series of ex-ecutive actions to grant as many as 5 million undocumented immigrants protection from deportation. Nevada is one of 26 states challenging the pro-gram in court.

Rules change all the time, Ansara said, “but it seems that any real re-form or change has stalled by the national debate over immigration re-form — ‘dreamers,’ amnesty, path to citizenship, etc.”

Nevada, he said, is “no more unique than the other Southwest states where immigration has played such a major factor in population growth and demographic shifts.”

“Politics and economics are one huge, nasty ball of twine that cannot be unraveled,” said Michael Johnson, managing partner of the Sporting Life Bar in Las Vegas. “While the im-migrant issue is a discussion for the community, for the individual opera-tor, immigrants are a boon and the big white elephant in the room. They work for less. Not only have we seen U.S. restaurants blossom because of the immigrant worker, but it turns out the immigrant worker executes the menu the same way every time. Consistency is key.”

Johnson believes immigration re-form and minimum-wage increases are bound together.

“Should either of those go through, the population needs to be prepared for a $15 hamburger at their local joint,” Johnson said.

As an industry, restaurants have two ways of coping, Johnson said

— “either increase prices drastically or reduce service levels. Your burger now costs $15 or it takes 30 minutes. What does the populace want?”

John Arena, who with cousin and fellow third-generation pizza-maker Sam Facchini owns and operates six Metro Pizza restaurants across the Las Vegas Valley, said restaurants benefit from immigrant labor, and immigrants benefit from the work.

“Traditionally, our industry relies heavily on immigrant labor, and im-migrants rely on us as providers of opportunity,” Arena said. “Through hard work, today’s restaurant laborer will become tomorrow’s business owners. I have seen this cycle repeat-ed in my own family.”

What business needs, Arena said, is comprehensive reform “structured to serve the best interests of our na-tion, not just designed to get votes based on raw emotion.”

The restaurant industry “needs a system of verification that is accurate and workable,” he said. “As it stands right now, the difficulty of verifica-tion combined with the penalties have created an atmosphere of fear and confusion.”

Nevada and the Southwest are particularly vulnerable, Arena said, “because we have a service-based economy combined with proxim-ity to a porous border. Inflammatory statements by political candidates are only adding to the challenge of creating a system that should be of-fering realistic reforms and will pro-

vide a safe and legal workforce for our industry.”

Arena said every restaurateur he knows is trying to comply with regu-lations, be a good steward to employ-ees and serve the needs of guests.

State-by-State differenceSChallenges vary regionally, said

Carolyn Richmond, who co-chairs the hospitality practice group and labor and employment department at law firm Fox Rothschild in New York.

“For instance, tech-dependent regions are particularly vulnerable to changes in visa laws and limits,” Richmond said. “Cities such as Mi-ami, New York and Los Angeles have very different concerns.”

Compliance with U.S. immigration laws varies from state to state, Rich-mond said, “and often depends on the sophistication of the business. The I-9 form was recently revised and expanded. While not generally com-plicated, it can be cumbersome for already-overburdened managers.”

State-to-state differences appear mainly in verification, “which is something we are trying to change,” said Angelo Amador, senior vice president and regulatory counsel for the National Restaurant Association. “We want to have one law of the land so that everyone is clear as to what they have to do.”

“The most important thing is (op-erators) need to stay up to date with changes, on both a national and state basis,” Amador said. “The require-

ments seem to be constantly shifting, which is something that we hate, but it is what it is.”

GreateSt challenGeStaffing for restaurants always is a

concern, “especially in a market with a population at the age of 16 to 24 not growing and no final consistent reform measures on immigration in place,” said Brian McDonough, se-nior human resources consultant for Synergy Restaurant Consultants in California. “Food-service operations traditionally promote to leadership positions from within the current ranks of employees. A strong, healthy, legal base of staff at the lower levels feeds management and leadership positions in the future. Restaurants are a leading employer of entry level jobs. Immigration is one main source of staffing at this level.”

The immigration issue is hurting the industry in a number of ways, McDonough said. Because of incon-sistent compliance systems through-out the country, immigrants gravi-tate toward states that don’t require stringent background checking sys-tems, he said.

Another pitfall is paperwork. “Major functions of entire depart-

ments of large chains are relegated to the function of ensuring that I-9s and any other mechanism for ensuring authority to work in the Unites States are complied with,” McDonough said.

The greatest challenge to com-pliance can be the system itself, he added.

“Managers are hired and trained to run restaurants; the issue of com-pliance with immigration laws is the job of the federal government,” Mc-Donough said.

E-Verify, an online system that compares information from an em-ployee’s I-9 form with data from the U.S. Department of Homeland Se-curity and Social Security Adminis-tration to confirm employment eli-gibility, isn’t required by the federal government for nonpublic jobs and isn’t required in all states. Restau-rants in states that require E-Verify are at a disadvantage for landing im-migrant employees.

The program was intended to as-sist with hiring, but “it actually has made it more difficult and, at best, caused more immigrants to go un-derground,” McDonough said.

John arena, co-owner of six Metro Pizza restaurants in Southern Nevada, says the

system of employee eligibility verification has created an atmosphere of fear and

confusion. (L.E. BaSkow/Staff)
