    i know some guys will not use illegal labor. they feel it is illegal, unethical, and dishonest. BUT, these same guys, will hire a mexican who THEY KNOW DAMN WELL has a fake i.d. thier attitude is, "hey, my butt is covered." so, what is the difference? would you hire him if you thought the i.d was fake?

    To hire someone you need 2 forms of ID as per I-9. http://uscis.gov/graphics/formsfee/forms/files/i-9.pdf#search='irs%20i9'

    no mexicans, legal or illegal.

    Support Americans.

    Nowonder why there are so many unemployeed Americans. Its because many people are hiring these stupid mexicans because their cheap. C'mon, have some morals.

    I'm sorry if i'm sounding rude, but immigrants take jobs from Americans. Period.

    Bobby, I think I'm at a point that I need to hire some of these guys, I have had to turn away 2 good jobs to someone I know gets on the phone, makes the call/////Mexican friends and boom....crap is done in a few hours vs. my 8 or more hours to get it done....customers want it now!!! The white guys that own LCO around here are using nothing but these guys, I'm sure they are just checking the basics..........Changing the name to "Paco's"!!!
