    i dont know why everyone says mexicans are so great...they get hot just like everyone else and have to take breaks...heck, the guys that do the landscaping after i final grade take more breaks then me when i labor...but if u know the language (which i guess is the main barrier to some of these guys) just go to the area where they all live....i know in Kennett Square around me ("mushroom capital of the world") they live in community housing and sit by the streets waiting for guys in trucks to drive by and pick them up.

    If you have any experience hiring multiple employees, you would understand why he wants only hispanics. I am not planning on hiring another white person as long as I can help it.

    If I were you I would find trailer parks or anywhere they might be and just go up to them and ask if they need work. Usually if they don't their cousin's brother in law will!
