      Same as every time I have been in California and asked a waiter a question only to get a blank look and then smile when I point to the coffee cup ?

        Hmmm. It could be more likely that the Canadians mind their own business quite a bit, politically speaking.

          Probably a typo on your part but for the record, Northern Ireland is not a Republic.

              Ireland Is a Republic. Northern Ireland is seperate (partitioned) from the Irish Republic and is a "constituent country" of the United Kingdom.

                Here in L.A. it's no secret that we have a surplus of illegals and I have seen them working as guards and know of companies that go to the local home depot to find their new security statff. Their is always a business man willing to sell out an industry for a buck. These kind of people have and contiue to make us all look bad and prevent us from getting hire paying positions by destroying our image! It's up to us to project a professional image and educate the public about our field.

                  I am going through pure hell right now trying renewe my 20 years of licenced experience and the ironic thing I was told - ummmmmmmm can someone assess you and I have kindly said ummmmmmmmm No because I am the top of the RM pyramid. I have seen some courses now go over $1,000 US which is for someone who is going to be on minimum wages for a few years as they are new to the country, etc. Even my assessment is now $200.00 but I was quoted $400.00 US and it would take me a week of my own time plus class time (unpaid of course).

                    It has often upset me to the core that (often) the lowest paid workers (like security and janitors) often times have top administrative abilities, like having keys to areas in a building / complex that even some administrative employees do not have.

                    Have you ever run into a situation where a company supervisor had to call for security, or a janitor, to come and open a door to a sensitive area of the business?

                    How often do you hear of a janitors background being checked?

                    At least, hopefully, the guard's background has been gone over. But still, if the guard, or janitor, is only making $8.00 to $9.00 per hour, working among others getting $30 to $50 per hour, the temptation for them to do something wrong, and the ability to do it (by having the company keys, ect), is probably a factor that needs to be considered. When you add that a person is an illegal, is working illegally, or has a criminal background, the temptation to do wrong is probably much greater than for the average, legal worker.

                    I know that all businesses want to keep costs down, but they should remember that when it comes to employees that are often at the bottom end of the pay scale, even if it is a contract employee, and those employees are expected to handle company property (like keys to the company that give them access to highly sensitive, or other normally restrictive areas in the business), that the temptation to do something wrong is often there.

                      The janitors are probably SEIU members, so how much are they making, and what kind of guarantees do they get? Does the union allow for background checks? Does it require them?

                      Its things like that one has to remember, the janitors are probably making more than security.
