Sorry to hear about that situation. Most people I’ve talked to have had positive experiences with day laborers, including myself. I assume you offered $150 per person, not for both of them? I think your story points to the fact that it’s extremely important to lay out the payment expectations clearly using an adequate translator. I personally triple check that everyone is in agreement before even leaving the parking lot. While I do think most laborers are honest people just trying to earn a living, I have no doubt that just like in any other business there will be some unscrupulous ones.
