for those laborers that you see hanging out at home depot.... anybody know? Neighbor friend is trying to find out, thought I would help get the answer before he drives over there, as he is not sure whether he is going that route or not.

Thanks.

The unknown fisherman:p:

Never pay by the hour.

Figure out what the job is worth and tell them they get that much whether it takes 2 hrs...or 5.

Yep they think they are in a Union.
Yeah they do :/

The ones I got from the the home depot in clairmont mesa wouldnt work of less than $100 bucks for 8hrs. And they wanted a break at exactly 2 and 6hrs and a 1hr lunch. I drew the line when they asked me what was for lunch. All we were doing was loading insulation from a warehouse to a tractor trailer. Still cheaper than hiring someone from a temp agency though.

All the bitching and moaning about illegal immigration on this board in the past...when you hire these guys, you are helping create the problem.
Although some may not be illegals, you know that the large majority of them are. Don't hire illegals, you are part of the problem.

Agreed!!! Here in the OC they say $10/hr. and YOU buy lunch!!! Then my brother and I were told that it's not enough?!?! AFTER we unloaded the moving truck the three were still standing in the driveway givin' stinkeye. Told them to "take the money and run"! otherwise it's the sherrif's dept.! Well, they ran. Three guys for 5hrs. wanted $100 EACH! UH-UH. Will NEVER hire a day laborer again unless he's of the lighter persuasion and speaks fluent English. Guess I just set myself up for ANOTHER infraction......

10 $ per hour for their labor
6 dollars per hour for them and their family to get health care at the emergency room
3$ per hour for the hud housing subsidy
3$ per hour for the free education in two languages
6$ per hour to incarcerate those that commit crimes when they can't find work
1$ an hour for me to type this
suddenly that cheap labor bites you in the ass when it comes to to fund all these wonderful government workers to oversee the distributution of the unpaid for government money to fund said programs for the illegals and their families.

Not all of them are illegal. When I was laid off and desperate for cash I would go hang out at the one in Lemon Grove. Had my own lunch and spoke spanglish so I got picked up every time. I bargained a price that was appropriate for the job. Most of what people are looking for is straight up manual labor so around $100-$150 for a whole day was normal.

But from talking to some of them, MOST of them are illegal.

$100 a day + lunch is what my contractor buddy pays them. Don't ever give them a beer!
