Unlicensed uninsured contractors using illegal labor not paying any taxes, social security, unemployment or worker's comp, etc. Thank our cities for providing day labor centers so these illicit operators have a source for their illegal labor.
This crap really hurts the contractors who perform quality work, legally and supporting our country.

Sorry, but further commenting on this topic has been closed.
