(WASHINGTON TIMES) Edward Turknett learned that El Expreso, a Houston bus company, was looking for drivers, so he followed all the instructions in the job listing to apply. He never heard back.
The Justice Department says El Expreso wasn’t interested in American workers and wanted to hire foreigners on work visas.
Though the bus company maintains its innocence after a department investigation, it has agreed to pay a fine to the government and a sizable settlement to those like Mr. Turknett who were left without a job.

The government on Tuesday announced more than $90,000 in payments to eight Americans who were not hired.
