Where do you live? I’ve never seen anyone other than the home owners or businesses mowing or doing yard work.
I live where Circuit City went out of business. Where Capital One has had layoffs. Where Wachovia moved to St Louis while trimming jobs beforehand. Where Quimonda went belly up.
Don't know about Albie, but I'm in Virginia, and when my disabled neighbor needed yard help, he put an ad on craigslist offering $8 an hour and had to take it down before noon because his phone was ringing off the hook with people begging to work for him for that.
