Who will do my work if all the Mexicanos go back to Mexico, or immigrate to San Fransisco???
You can buy a robot to mow the lawn.
Right and that’s the problem ... if you hire out you’re responsible if someone gets hurt ... it will come to the point when you take a taxi and the taxi gets into an accident you’ll be held liable too since you hired the cab ....
What's your job? I'm sure we can find some third world person - or maybe some intelligent Chinese person - to do it cheaper.
Do YOU want to compete with people who will do anything to get here? Even undercut your pay, your wife's pay, and your kids pay to do it?
Do your own effing gardening or hire a legal fellow citizen.
We have had a wonderful man who has cut our grass, trimmed our shrubs, raked our leaves, etc for about 25 years and he is the best. For some reason he has his nephews living with him and they have been helping for about 5-10 years. Guess he is grooming them to take over when he retires. He and his crew do most of the yards on this street and many others throughout town. No, he is not an illegal. I would not hire them.
The irony is, they make all these laws regulating us, and then move all the work over to China and India where some kid does it anyway
It's like pulling teeth to get my fifteen year old to pull weeds. Maybe I can trade him in on one of those Arizona Mexicans.
and what, exactly, do you know about an illegal alien all over your yard and in your shed? They could be worse criminals
There are plenty of willing and able bodied Americans.
When a farm in Arizona was recently raided, 300 illegals were taken away.
Hundreds of Americans turned out to fill those jobs.
It’s a myth spread by liberals that “illegals are only taking the jobs that Americans don’t want”.
According to the video I saw yesterday, a better question would be, would those working for you use those rakes and hoes to beat you with?
After the past few days who would want or trust someone to do their gardening.
Wish I could have a garden. I had one many years ago and just as everything started getting ripe enough to pick, everything would disappear. Same goes for my fruit trees. I love green plums so I have one tree that lived past 2 or 3 years. Last year, I went out one evening to see if any were ripe and there were lots. I just thought that I would go back out the next morning to get them. Well, imagine my surprise to find every plum on my tree gone. I think I have some other 2 legged “friends” who love plums, too.
put up a game camera and catch the culprit
I’ve never had anoyone but hubby or I do the yard and garden work?
Same folks who’ve always done it - my husband, with a little help from me. I supervise. :-)
When I was a kid I mowed all of our neighbors lawns, picked weeds, shoveled snow, and did what ever I could for a buck.
I was never broke, always had a few bucks in my pocket, and I gave my mother half of what I made.
Today, my college kids have a hard time finding part-time summer jobs because there aren’t any. Illegals have them all. So it’s not because our kids don’t want to work, there aren’t any jobs to find.
Even one of our local schools who usually have summer jobs for kids doing clean up stuff, have started using Mexicans.
I am teaching my 11 year old to mow grass and weed eat..by next summer he can start knocking on neighbors doors to do some yard work and earn a little extra money.
AS my husband says just watch one episode of “Dirty Jobs” and you will find out that there are no jobs Americans won’t do!
Awesome! My nearly 16 year old used to want to offer to mow lawns when he was 11, but was disappointed to find that everyone either did their own lawncare or hired illegals. He couldn’t compete.
