New Article: Legalizing Undocumented Work

New Article: Jennifer J. Lee, Legalizing Undocumented Work, 42 Cardozo L. Rev. 1893 (2021). Abstract below:

An estimated eight million undocumented workers live as a subclass of workers in the United States. Their essential work is cast in a shadow of “illegality” because federal immigration law prohibits employers from hiring such workers. As a result, undocumented workers are relegated to low-paying jobs in specific industries, such as agriculture, construction, or domestic work. Employers can easily take advantage of such workers by paying them less than the minimum wage or requiring them to work under dangerous conditions.
