Guilty plea in H-2B fraud scheme

"Voisine knowingly submitted H2B application forms containing falsifications or misrepresentations to the U.S. Department of Labor in October 2007.   The forms said Santa Cruz Management would employ 306 workers from the Philippines in the housekeeping industry at hotels and motels in the Branson area during 2008.  In reality, 86 foreign workers were illegally displaced by Santa Cruz Management to fulfill labor contracts in Myrtle Beach from Jan. 1 to July 21, 2008.  Santa Cruz Management was not approved as an H-2B employer for Myrtle Beach.  By pleading guilty, Voisine agreed to forfeit to the government $169,661, which represents his profit from the scheme." - KY3-TV, Dec. 20, 2011.
