Online grocery giant FreshDirect is axing scores of immigrants in a crackdown on undocumented workers at its Queens warehouse.
FreshDirect axes immigrant workers
Teary-eyed workers filed out of the delivery company's factory in Long Island City yesterday after supervisors demanded they produce papers proving their immigration status is legal.
Jim Moore, FreshDirect's senior vice president for business affairs, said in a statement the company is "cooperating with the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services in its review of employment documentation." He declined further comment.
