” . I’ve been a contractor in SoCal for over 30 years and I see fewer and fewer Americans working construction. The trades have been taken over by Mexican “contractors” who hire only ILLEGALs. It’s an unfair advantage they have over contractors like me who still pay a fair wage to Americans but it’s one that I can do little about. “

Man, you are in a business that has REALLY been victimized by illegals. The past 10 years, or more, builders hire at least 90% illegals, and hire a bi-lingual foreman. They slap these new homes together with mostly unskilled labor. 10’s of thousands of these homes are crumbling, but the builder just files BK when the lawsuits begin to accumulate. Then the builder/prick just forms a new company, and starts the whole sordid process all over again, leaving American construction workers to go pound sand.

We do a lot of custom and/or high end work, work that ILLEGALs lack the experience and skill to do. On many project my competitors don’t often even bid because they know they lack the work force to get it done. Concrete and block walls are a thing of the past for us because that’s all the unskilled/underpaid ILLEGAL hordes can do.
