Why is speaking English a kicker for you? The USA has no official language. You don't seem to educated on "tha English" either.

If I had Mexicans work for me you can beat your ass they'll be speaking English...It's annoying that you can't understand them. And our official language will probably be Spanish in the next few years our kindergartners our learning Spanish. (In my area around Va if you don't take another language in middle school you'll be forced out of a advanced diploma(24 credits) and put into a standard diploma(22 credits) 2 credits just so I can talk like an immigrant.

Illegals aren't worth it. 10000x worse than hiring someone legal.

You don't have to worry about a thing. The cops cannot question his status. It is no big deal using hispanic workers, they work way way harder than legal guys most of the time. There is nothing to worry about, pay cash and leave no paper trail.

Also America doesn't have a official language. I do not understand why so many people here are against learning a second language. In most countries in Europe people are REQUIRED to learn 4 languages in school, here we ***** because we are asked to take two years of a foreign language. All it can do is benefit you by speaking a second language. I know that I am Spanish bi-lingual because that is how I was raised and I do not regret it at all. You guys need to be more open minded.

PS: Good luck finding a illegal that speaks good english lmao.

Your 100% right, I've never ever had a problem with a single hispanic worker not giving me a full day work, even when we get backed up and pick up a day laborer. All my full time guys are legal, but when we get backed up or need some extra help I dont know if the day laborers are legal or not, and honestly, as long as they work hard I dont give a flying f*** I tried a temp agency in the past for laborers and everyone they set me up with were all completey useless and wanted more money then a laborer. As for the 'speak english' debate, my full time guys have to at least speak some english because I'll have them run to the dump site or pick up supplies/rental equipment for me, but day laborers if they dont speak english it doesnt bother me. Honestly spanish isnt that hard of a language to learn, I grew up speaking english & some italian, took spanish in highschool and picked it up pretty easily, now I'm all but fluent.

You want us to help you get away with hiring illegals?

You can't charge extra because it takes you twice as long to do the job because you have crappy or outmoded equipment.

And, if they don't pay, put a shovel upside their head.

This is why we have such an issue with illegals, and lowball landscapers. Please dont contribute to illegals our economy is in tough enough shape. I cannot even believe someone would actually come on here and ask for tips on how to hire illegals. I think I seriously just threw up in my mouth. There is so little done about this that people are bold enough to post asking for tips on lawnsite.
