Jay Pierson, host of The CNC Report has a vested interest in a segment recently seen on the CNN program Lou Dobbs Tonight. Interested because he has seen how the effects of illegal immigration has played out in the life of his father, Joel Pierson. After committing his business to practice the utmost of ethics, Joel Pierson played by the rules… and the rules worked against him.
“That night it looked like the hispanic version of the Tour de France”, said Jay Pierson after being asked what he originally saw that tipped his father to seek out the truth behind his competitor’s success. “I was working late one night and left our facility around midnight. On the way home I passed by the shop of one my dad’s competitors and was amazed at literally dozens of hispanics on bicycles obviously going home at the end of their shift.”
This prompted Joel Pierson to further investigate with former customers who had recently switched over to Joel’s competitor. “I found out that they undercut my pricing by more than half! I called the owner (of the competing shop) and he said that they were simply better at running an efficient operation.”
Efficient might be a stretch… Illegal would have been the better answer.
