The South Carolina Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation announced today that over a dozen illegal workers were employed at three construction sites in Anderson County’s school District 5. The illegal workers were found at Calhoun Academy of the Arts, Glenview Middle School and Robert Anderson Middle School. Jim Knight with Labor, Licensing and Regulation said the workers were employed by sub-contractors.
We found six sub-contractors to be employing sixteen illegal aliens on the job sites. We have notified the employers of the illegals and we told them they have to terminate the workers.
Knight said that federal officials with ICE have been notified of the investigation.
