    They wanted $95 a truck hr this season and we tried to neg a bit lower and re-sign them for next lawn season at the same time and they wouldnt budge... So i found 2 new co's to take care of us.

    We had a number of problems with the crew, peeing behind dumpsters (resident caught him), not mowing entire rear of building, just not doing their job... not to mention a language barrier.

    I'd never hire them again... and they wont get a good word from me.

    Language barrier? What language barrier?? If we elect Hillary or Obama, English will be reduced to "a common unifying language;" and anyone suggesting that we make English the official language of this country is "arrogant."

    So, mis amigos, deben apprender hablar Espanol rapido.

    Arrogant!? Maybe, but english is the international language of business. There is no other language that is spoken in more countries.

    Well hopefully with the soon failure of the H2B program we can say hasta la vista to all of the bendayhos. Sorry if I can't spell spanish, I was raised a red blooded American.

    Sorta hoping it does fail, all these bozos that sell their landscape and maintenance work cheap based on paying these guys virtually nothing are going to have figure out a way to get all their work done that they've sold at a nice low rate.
