Re: The Mexicans are coming


Why would Canada need Mexicans?

Theres enough Canadians on this one web site to take over Mexico.

...To be honest...One of my Uncles [Canadian] Taught another uncle [American] then my Dad ,and so on...This drywall family tree spreads out to Florida/Washington st/California/South Carolina/ Boston Massachusetts/Virginia....

I forgot Indiana ....My dads brother ran a large crew of hanger @ finishers in the early 60s.

Re: The Mexicans are coming


Mexicans DO drive prices down, an greedy Ole whitey general contractor loves it! It will happen up in the great white north too. Happens wherever they go. There are Mexicans that work for the right wages, but alot more that don't.

Re: The Mexicans are coming


government keeps wages down so Mexicans do drywall instead of 7.25 to make more money. Raise minimum wage and all wages will rise

Re: The Mexicans are coming


nobody wants to work for 7.25 so when you have people that want to work and make money ,they do. It seems alot of the cheaper labor has left my area, kinda hard to find help these days. The good guys are swamped and the not so good are gone or bellyup . Sounds like a boom in other areas has drawn guys away

That's sounding a little painfully like me. I could be making more than I have been.

But my company is a good one to work for in a # of ways.

Because he wants to make more than us? I don't blame him for that. Hell, I want to make more than us. And I'd take it if they gave it to me. Wouldn't get any arguments from me.

What might happen if the Mexicans decided they'd no longer work for so little? Might the prices go up?

Just playing Devil's Advocate here.

Sure you do.

Where'd you pull that 'absolute' truth from? Some 'The Book of Fair Play'? A 'moore's Manual For How Things Are To Be'? ( again.)

they been decided not to work for peanuts. The work top rates out here
