Michael and Peter talk about the risk associated with hiring day laborers. What are day laborers? They are the guys standing around at your favorite hardware store(Home Depot and Lowes) parking lot. Most people think, I am getting a great deal when they go this route. Consider these issue before you hire these guys.

Show Notes:

Day Laborers, my version of urban dictionary: The guys standing in the parking lots of a Home Depot, Lowes, UHaul, any parking lot, etc. They look like they are hanging out but they are actually looking for work.  Currently, many of these guys speak mostly Spanish and are from mostly from Central America. For readers who watch “South Park”, enjoy.  http://southpark.cc.com/clips/155575/writing-eses

Legitimate hiring of Day Laborers: Go to Day Laborer resource centers. Some cities have them where Day Laborers can be hired. This is from the city of Mountain View, CA. http://www.dayworkercentermv.org/

Typical Challenges:

  • Language Barrier
  • No Knowledge
  • No Tools
  • No Vehicle
  • Do not expect the best labor to be found here.

Landscaping is perceived to be low skilled because most yard maintenance guys are “mow and blow”. They mow the grass, blow the leaves, and then leave your house. Quick service. This is the low end of yard maintenance options.

Contrary to popular belief, a good landscaping company has knowledgeable people. This is why hiring day laborers can be risky for customer satisfaction.
