All I can say is this: I’ll load boxes for $15, in fact I’d do it for $14.
AGOURA HILLS, Calif. — The driver of a black Honda thought he would quickly enlist some guys to load furniture and boxes onto a truck — until he heard the men wanted $15 an hour. ”What? You don’t even have papers,” the driver told a clutch of Latino day laborers clustered around his car last week. But they stood firm.
”We do hard jobs other people won’t do,” Luis Cap, a Guatemalan, told the man behind the wheel. ”If you want to save money, that’s OK. You will have to find other workers.” The Honda drove off, the odd jobs unfilled.
Yeah, let them unionize. They would remove the need for their own presence in the country.
