I'm not sure if this has ever been tried in an area or by other businesses but I was thinking of trying to band together with the other landscaping, lawncare, etc businesses in my area that are legal businesses to rid our area of Joe Schmoe with no insurance, business license, etc. I'm not sure how I would do it. I guess I'm thinking that calling all of the businesses, that do things the right way, together to get rid of those who are out to make some quick beer money would only benefit the legal companies in the area. It would stop the lowballing and get rid of those who don't claim taxes which then helps the county and state (another benefit for me). This also benefits the homeowners because all work would insured and protected. I guess as a band of LCO's would could create some sort of awareness of illegal operators by running ads about checking for insurance and licenses before work is started. Any thoughts?
