I don't think that many of you realize how completely different the Southern California landscape industry is from the rest of the country (maybe except for Texas). I'm not saying that white guys don't file claims but Hispanic guys definitely do.
I've had a few of them file claims. But my guys usually prefer NOT to file a claim unless it's really a big injury. I always have to talk them into filing a claim. I find most of them just want to keep working and earn an honest day's wages. I have had maybe one in all these years that I felt was suspicious. Otherwise, in my experience, they have been way better workers than most American workers I've had over the years - in pretty much every respect.
