    All I can say is it's a free country. If you can't find, create or advance to a position that you like in this industry, pays you a decent living and challenges your abilities, you owe it to yourself to explore other fields.

    Absolutely and Amen! I was just giving my opinion and realistic sight into security from the employee perspective!

    I assume you're referencing SB1159. If SB1159 goes though, illegals that have obtained a federal tax ID number would be allowed to apply for licensing as security guards, as well as a bunch of other jobs. Being allowed to apply for a license and getting a license issued are two different things. Once they get a license, they will still have to provide documentation for eligibility to work in the US, as indicated on the I-9.

    California has actually tightened restrictions, not loosened them, and requires a lot more training as well as a DoJ and FBI background check.

    I also assume by your statement, and the perceived feelings from the rest of your post, you believe that these people will fill a pool of minimum wage workers, not a pool of highly skilled top dollar earning workers. Guess what? That minimum wage pool is already overflowing with legal immigrants, kids out of high school, and others that have no motivation to get out of the pool and improve themselves.

    As a California PPO, I don't hire from that pool anyway.
