And that's all they'll get. Probably what they're looking for in the first place. I haven't seen a white guy on a hotel/motel job in a long time.

Here come the Mexicans,
Here come the Mexicans
Across the border fence,
Their gonna take your job from you
And work for 50 cents

Re: Help Wanted ..... Its time to change stripes


What is the real value of a $10.00 per hour wanna be. If it takes him or her three times longer. The dummies paid $ 30.00 and still got a crappy job. And they liked it .

Re: Help Wanted ..... Its time to change stripes


A hotel owner. I'll say his name is Abu. ( From the Simpsons) Had an EIFS canopy that was coming apart. It was beat up and had some crown molding leaking.

If he didn't fix it Hampton was threatening to pull his flag. I gave him a reasonable price to make it look new. ( Fix all dents, holes, cracks. Re coat, Clean the mold off.)

He sat down. Looked at my quote. Struck out all of my detailed items and told me I could do it for 1/3 of my quote. He said he is a GC and this is what he pays. I told him he was very smart man and walked.

He eventually hired someone to goober up the dents and holes and roll one coat over the rest of it. He got a half a## job for less than a half a## price.

Nothing against foreigners. Most of these hotel owners are a bunch of cheap a##s that get what they pay for .

All the hotel people I've dealt with are .... "shrewd". That's the nicest way I can put it.
