    wow, sounds like they are extremely hard up and can't find any help at all. maybe if they would up their wage some, they might have a better chance of finding someone that is at least employable.

    I think they are trying to get emp. through the H2B program and from what i have read they need to prove that they cant find any local help. Thats what it sounds like to me!

    I'd have to agree. You place the hourly rate low enough that they don't generate any leads and then they have their proof on paper.
