Salt Lake City, UT – On July 1, Utah's new immigration law goes into effect. Among other things, SB 81 requires public employers to use "E-Verify" to confirm the status of a worker before hiring him or her. It's a change that mirrors similar attempts around the country to hold employers increasingly responsible for hiring undocumented workers. Tuesday, we're talking about that relationship between business and immigration, and what reform could mean for production, wages and your own pocket.
