Re: The Mexicans are coming


2buck's right!
If the mexicans can get out of bed 20 minutes earlier to start their vehicles in the cold winter months then they're half way there.
Now you just have to haul sheets of drywall in the snow. Up hill! Both ways!!

Re: The Mexicans are coming


It's not the Mexicans fault. Its it gc or owner of the companys that bought the drywall company because they have money and there is money in drywall right now. There are guys that buy these established companies that have good names and ruin them by bringing in guys to work for next to nothing and the owners don't care about the quality and finished product. I met a few guys in the pub about two months ago that ce from bc and I have no problem with them comming and work but I let them no what the going rate is and don't work for anything less. They seemed like good guys and said they won't be but who knows. It's not necessarily the guys comming in fault, but in Saskatoon it's the people WHO are bringing them in.

On the serious side, they have been here for awhile now. But since Southern Ontario is a Union beast. They half to work for the going rate. If anything, they want the rate to go up, just like the rest of us

Now northern Ontario, where Sudbury is, there's no Union at all there. They could charge as low as they wanted. I hear there's so much work up there, they can't keep up. Their begging for workers up there. Plus the weather is really nice there. This was Canada's little secret,,,,,,,,,(till now),,,,,,but it never snows there, and it's always warm there....... We call it the Cancun Mexico of Canada

Ya! Our union sucks balls!! Like 2buck said, it's not really a union at all.
So people can charge whatever they want. I see it all the time too.
But I don't care. If they want to price out a job and they're happy making $500 a week. Go for it!

Could've been, at least up till now. I've seen where they've been charging some immigration lawyer types lately with having made false claims for their clients. Maybe Immigration Canada is starting to wise up a bit.

I talked again with the guy from Saskatoon and he said that an outfit out of B.C.'s Okanagan Valley had lowballed a bunch of commercial work in Saskatoon the last while. Wonder if there's any connection between those BC guys and your BC guys.
