Pull in to the local "union hall", hold up two fingers, and say "trabahadors".

I know where this is going and I don't want to jack this thread. Start a new thread and we can argue there. Not like this is a new subject.:p :waving: And I am serious about my advice.

What the He!! is trahabadors :confused: ? your spanish sucks :p ! No wonder you can't get help. The labor market is thin, I have had -0- luck from the newspapers the last few times. I got quite a few responses from jobbing .com The response is instant, put in the add and start receiving e-mails immediately and you can deal with it on your schedule no phone interruptions. with all that said I had one guy last for a while and he ended up instigating a fight with another employee :nono: . So he is gone. I have got one good employee from here LawnSite. I also made up fliers and posted on community collage campus got one guy from that, turned out to be a Nazi, very intelligent but trouble with one of my Jewish guys :eek: . He didn't last. At my business coaches advise I carry a few business cards that say on the back "you have impressed me with your customer service if you need a change please call". I met a really polite guy at McyD's and gave him the card he called within 30 minutes very nice ex military thought he would be great turned out to be peculiar . Evidently he had these howling spells, :dizzy: like a wolf the guys said. Ended up getting in a big argument about someone stealing his sandwich, this bunch are not practical jokers so he was gone :waving: . I forgot to mention I drug test my guys, do an IQ test and visual test, and do a background checks too before I hire. So I guess what I'm saying is it's a lot of luck to get good employees. One of the best guys I found was asking for an application at a Mobil gas station. I told him you don't want to work there. Hop in and I will put you to work now. The guy worked for me for about 4 years. But that was back in the day. Good luck. :)

get help.

I get help just fine. The Union Hall is always full. I never said I spoke fluent Amigo and obviously have trouble spelling it. The word "trabajadors" mean workers. After reading your post I think you should listen to what I'm saying. I think this thread just got jacked anyway.:cool:

If you are serious about needing help, go ask at a fire department. Most career firefighters can always use part-time work, and are used to being in the public eye and have no fear of hard work.

Around here they are already in the business part time for themselves.
