I know of several lco's and contractor's in my area that use them. What I have heard is that thier work ethic is fantastic. They will work around the clock if you had the work. Not all have visa's and they will demand cash at the end of each day. I have nothing against hispanic's but I get extremely mad trying to compete with other lco's that use illegal immigrants and low ball work because of low overhead. This usually only happens with residential work.
With the educational system in the US trades are often forgotten. This paves the way for foreign labor to come and take over labor intensive jobs. Use this to your advantage and learn a second language and expand your business legally with the available labor pool.
My buddy had two guys from Mexico working for him. One day he woke up and they were late. He called down to the trailer(which he bought for them), no answer. Waited a bit, then went down. He found that they left sometime the night before and get this, took his tv he bought for them!!!
after going thru about 10 "americans", and 3 mexicans, i have found this: the american guys didnt show, sometimes had problems with the way they were talked to, got tired easily, and had to leave early cus they were hungover. the mexican guys: didnt show, but when they did, were worth about 5 times more than the american guy, didnt give a crap what u asked them to do, or how u asked them, and worked dawn till dusk hungover or not. personally, i dont care to deal with the nonsense anymore, i rely on myself only.
