    How are the illegals in your area. In my area every company out there is hiring them and prices are dropping and I can hardly keep up. Not trying to offend anyone but come on. :usflag:

    Being isolated in Maine is not ALWAYS a bad thing... This does not seem to be a problem here YET... except for during blueberry and potato season.

    Our illegals down here used to only pick tomatoes.... Unfortunately that is no longer the case. They have taken over the green industry, and whats left of the construction trades.

    During the Dem Debate the other night, one of the candidates was asked about immigration. ""HE" answered, We find to find a way for people to come to the united states legally.

    Honest to god, that was Obama's answer. I guess La Raza, never told him, there actually is way to come here legally.

    Your lucky if you even see somebody thats not hispanic on a mowing crew around here. Thats not to say they are all illegal but I am willing to bet that most of them are.

    Example: 1 acre lawns being cut in this area for under $40. 2 acres for $60 or less. Its getting really bad here.

    Wow. Prices are not going down here. If you do a good job you get work. La Raza is probably my favorite radio station. Noventa ocho punto cinco y ciento tres punto tres.
