"'Today, no - no working and no buying,' said Enrique Varguas, 28, who rescheduled a dozen or so landscaping appointments..."
BFD. If they all rescheduled, he's not out dime-one. I own a business; re-scheduling appointments is part of the package.
Now, if he had CANCELLED a "dozen or so" contracts to really drive his point home about how we can't live without him, I might not be yawning right now. *Rolleyes*
What's that old saying? "A Gringo and his peso are too soon parted?" ;)
I hope his customers read the article and cancel the jobs he had lined up.
The first question I'd ask the replacement landscaper was whether they were out working on May 1st.
I bought his share and mine too, today. :) My bank account is down several hundred dollars. :)
I let it be known that I would be doing business as usual today and there would be no rescheduling. Anyone who chose to alter hours or not show up would be out my business henceforth.
I got a couple takers, my usual breakfast restaurant boycotted so I went to another that did not, and I will not return to the old restaurant. Both restaurants are owned and run by immigrants, just one group screwed themselves.
My wife went to Walmart on Sunday. Normally it is almost deserted with all the local LDS population at church. It was wall to wall Mexicans stocking up so they could put on a show today.
