The term landscaping refers to changing the visible qualities of land. This can be for something simple as home gardening or as complex as deforestation, building a golf course and clearing land for a house, commercial building or neighborhood.
Not including farmers and laborers the landscaping industry provides close to 1,000,000 jobs throughout the United States. This is according to the Bureau of Labor & Statistics research. Of these jobs an estimated 10-20% are illegal immigrants in the landscaping industry and undocumented farm workers account for 5% of farmers.
For the most part no they are not. The company that makes Roundup, Monsanto who is a subsidiary of Bayer, has been found negligent as they failed to warn Roundup users of the dangers of the chemical glyphosate which is the herbicide in Roundup. With that, Roundup cases are usually mass tort claims also called toxic torts and or catastrophic injury cases.
One very common type of medical malpractice is a failure to diagnose cancer properly or in a timely fashion. If your doctor, oncologist or pathologist do not take a thorough medical history your NHL diagnosis may be delayed resulting in the cancer or other illnesses to advance. This leaves less treatment options and may also make the prognosis more bleak. In cases such as this there can be a medical malpractice claim as well.
Yes. They absolutely can. Doing so will have no impact on your immigration status nor will it result in you being deported. Monsanto has been ordered to pay billions of dollars in settlements to those suffering due to Roundup exposure. This has zero to do with being a U.S. citizen.
