No not really, you are looking in the wrong place. Call some of the local citrus growers, they have laborers that will be available when the citrus harvest slows down soon. Call a local college, UCF, USF etc. they have plenty of young men looking for work for the summer. If the checkout lady at the grocery or convenience store is Latino ask her if she knows anyone that is looking for work after the harvest, you will get more applications than you can handle.
