Yes I gave it a try. I took a friend that speaks Spanish and English very well, fluently. i need dirt hauled away. We found two day workers that agreed to work the day for one hundred fifty dollars. I rented a tractor and gave the one guy fifty dollars more for towing the tractor. I loaded the trucks and they drove about six miles to a place where another tractor waited and he unloaded the trucks with the tractor. This was done through the coarse of the day. I bought lunch for everyone. At the end of the day I paid them. One of them asked what the money was for and I said for payment on the days work. He then informs me that they agreed to one hundred fifty dollars a load, which would take the total to twelve hundred dollars a sum I would have never agreed to. I’m still getting hassled by these guys to pay for something I did not agree to. DO NOT TRUST A DAY WORKER!
