i was watching on one of the major newschannels this morning and they said home depot's in california will start having muster zones for mexican workers. this way people can get what they need at home depot and the workers to help them out if they need........

proenterprises, i believe a muster zones are areas where mexican workers wait for people looking for cheap labor, to work for them for the day.

You know going down to some parking lot and picking up a total stranger [or gang of strangers], and taking them out to your home in the burbs, for day labor, is a real , real risky thing to do.

What's the difference in risk between doing that - and picking up a hitch hiker ? Only difference I see is that you are giving the stranger access to your HOME and your FAMILY - I think I'll pass !

Have you guys ever worked with any of those guys? They are not all mexican and some do work hard. They just want to make a living. If you don't like it or can't trust them, then don't pick em up. Many of them are abused by landscapers. Now i admit I wouldn't leave one of them at my place or any ones place alone because obviously they don't have papers and you have no way of tracing them down if they did do something bad but most of them don't want to get deported and just want to send money home to feed their family and make a way for their families to come here also.
Now i also know most of the scrubs are latin but there are legal ways to deal with them.
Too many people want to bad mouth some one before getting to know them. This is America land of the free. Remember?
