We had four amazing guys help us move, we paid them more than they asked and bought them lunch. They worked tirelessly all day alongside us. We don’t speak spanish, one in the group spoke English. We all had a pretty good time working together and I’m glad I could offer someone a day’s wage. I will say that many of the laborers are unskilled or not skilled in the area you are hiring (how would you know?), the work may be sloppier than if you hired a licensed or accredited professional.
Like others said, pulling into home depot is really overwhelming. It was really a sad scene to see when so many unemployed men desparate for work bombard your truck and jump to take your offer without even knowing the task or the pay. I can see how a bad person could easily take advantage of them. Something is very wrong with the entire picture. Legal or illegal, no one should be in that situation.
