Scottsdale lies in Maricopa County, just east of Phoenix, Arizona. Scottsdale has a population of approximately 240,000, and is a popular tourist and shopping destination. Scottsdale is also known for its upscale real estate market; in fact, Scottsdale has been ranked among the top ten markets in the U.S. for luxury home sales.
Scottsdale’s economy relies heavily on the tourism industry, which accounts for about 39% of the city’s workforce. The aviation and healthcare industries also have a large presence in Scottsdale, which is home to one of the Mayo Clinic’s major three locations. Other notable companies headquartered in Scottsdale include Allied Waste, P.F. Changs, and TASER International.
Recently, the U.S. court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit upheld the 2007 Legal Arizona Workers Act, a law which imposes sanctions on employers who knowingly hire illegal aliens. The court held that: (1) the law does not impede on federal immigration authority, and (2) the law complies with constitutional due process because employers have the opportunity to rebut the presumption of an employee’s illegal status before sanctions are imposed.
