At least 19 employers are partnering with an immigrant-advocacy group to provide counseling and financial aid to immigrant workers who want to become U.S. citizens. "You create some sense of loyalty ... to know your place of employment helped you, assisted you in becoming a citizen -- I think that's a great deal," said Leonie Timothee, HR manager at InterContinental Miami. Some companies have citizenship-related perks, such as interest-free loans for citizenship-application fees and English classes to help with the citizenship test.
