The guy I used to work for, he would get guys from the county Work Release program. Now, I'm not saying I would go that route, but those guys will do anything to get out of jail for the day. Only problem is, when they get out, they quit.

By my house there is a 7-11 where all these day laborers gather in the morning. If you got something like that you could probably pick up somebody, and if their any good, offer them a permanent job. It's worked for some people I know.

The traditional ads in the paper don't seem to produce much anymore, everybody's looking for a nice cushy indoor job.

Day labor???????????? Good???? A guy who cant find a permenant job is all you will find there, and he will want cash at the end of the day. My best way was to find someone who had no experience. I did this because most lawnguys around here are losers to say the least.
