To: no-to-illegals

“The roofing contractor told me (and it is mostly true) all roofing, in this local are crews of people who happen to be in the U.S.A. illegally.”

This is a good example of illegal aliens taking jobs from Americans who work with their hands.

Last fall I was faced with a choice: hiring a roofing crew run by an American using illegals for a lower bid, or an American using an American crew for slightly more money.

As far as I’m concerned, using illegals to roof your home in order to save a few bucks is like hiring an illegal to clean your pool (which I don’t have) or to clean your home or to do your yard work.

I went with the American roofing crew last fall and told the other guy—who was low-balling my fellow citizens out of business—to go to hell.
Btw, I dethatched my own yard with a rented dethatcher this afternoon. And I don’t go to restaurants using illegal labor. It’s ratifying illegality. Period.

no-to-illegals, you either walk the walk or you don’t—and that’s the complete truth. Morality lesson, over-and-out.

no disagreement here. Practice many of the particulars you just preached plus some which went unmentioned, when can find the merchandise.
