Cheap contractors hiring (and exploiting) undocumented labor
Edited on Sat Nov-17-07 09:23 AM by WileEcoyote
Happens all the time. You pare your price down to the rock bottom minimum and submit a competitive bid at bargain basement prices. When done with the paperwork you almost hope that you don't get the job. Just want to keep your staff working.

You might even be just a simple handyman working alone. Or woman. Who cares?

Anyway your bid gets rejected because someone willing to work for ten bucks an hour takes the project. The general on the job takes his bid over yours.

What to do?

Bust him at the local planning dept. of the city or municipality for not having a permit.

Do it at the worst possible time for him getting paid. Drive this scumbag into bankruptcy. Just don't tell anyone. Not a soul.

DO IT!

1. (replies to own thread)
This isn't an "anti immigrant" post folks. This is a "PRO LABOR" PRO SMALL BUSINESS" note.

Be on the lookout for these "get rich quick" scam artists. They do terrible work and never guarantee anything.

You bust one at the local municipal planning dept and he not only doesn't get paid but gets on the SHIT list for the whole town/county whatever.

Stick up for hard working Americans.

Do your part: Always bust scab labor hiring contractors!
