Cohen & Grigsby, a local law-firm, is in some serious trouble.
“Our goal is clearly NOT TO FIND a qualified and interested U.S. worker.”
It’s on video, believe it or not, and even presented as a selling point to peddle their services by Cohen & Grigsby Law Firm. That’s right, this group of attorneys put an entire seminar on how to screw over the American worker on YouTube. Imagine that, a seminar from lawyers on how to make sure one doesn’t have to hire an American worker!
I don’t know what’s more astounding, that Cohen & Grigsby put on this seminar or that Cohen & Grigsby put this seminar on YouTube voluntarily, never thinking that there was anything wrong with what they were saying.
They have since pulled it down, but you can see it here.
If a company does find an undeniably qualified American candidate through newspaper advertising, “if necessary schedule an interview, go through the whole process to find a legal basis to disqualify them for this particular position,” said attorney Jennifer L. Barton on the video.
And just like that my fists turn into balls of fury.
Yesterday, Cohen & Grigsby put out a statement that while the firm stands by the substance of the seminar, “we regret the choice of words that was used during a small segment of the seminar. It is unfortunate that these statements have been commandeered and misused, which runs contrary to our intent.”
Regret the choice of words? Maybe you should have been more straightforward and just shouted out, over and over again, “SCREW YOU, AMERICA!!!”
Poetic justice? Well that would be a massive class action lawsuit by qualified American workers against Cohen & Grigsby and any of their clients.
I better see some high-profile heads rolling pretty soon or employees leaving the offices of Cohen & Grigsby should be on the lookout for my poop-loaded remote-controlled pigeon, which I’m currently setting to “dive-bomb.”
