    Just wondering. Our county is so much more diverse than it was a few years ago. Just wondering how many minorities are LCO's or visit Lawsite for information? Does this ever cause you problems getting jobs? I for one am glad your here and would love to hear how your business is doing. How about you ladies, how many of you are out there? I know I accidentally call sheshovel a he when in fact she was a lady with almost 5,000 post. Hopefully I've never said anything to offend anyone else but it made me curious as to who is on Lawnsite. Like I said I'm glad to get to talk to all of you and especially when someone comments from Europe or our Aussie friends. Always interesting to get a different point of view. Hey now Audrey is a gal with a 35 hp Tiger so you got to respect that.

    I am sorry if I came across wrong. I dont mind at all as long as

    1. The person speaks proper english
    2. They pay there taxes
    3. They dont shack 3 families in one house because everybody is working for next to nothing and they cant afford it unless a bunch of people all chip in.

    Its the non english speaking people working for $6 an hour that ruins alot of things such as the lawn business. Around here you see nothing but truck loads of hispanics that barely speak any english doing lawns for $15 if its small and 1 acre lawns for $25 to $30. Its getting out of hand in this area.
