Lazy like Americans? Yet it looks to be more an issue about you paying less money for repair or yard work (for which if you pay these guys more than $500 over the course of a year you are required to withhold payroll taxes or they are required to give you a business license and then they are required to be bonded and insured. None of which you seem to really care about, I can only hope they don't get injured while working for you as you will be responsible for all medical costs to include liability.

Tea Party? You seem clueless.


I do all my own work. In the long run you get what you pay for, cheap isn't always best or good work. I've seen some of those cheap guys slather bondo all over vs replacing with new or used panels and paint the area with dupli-color from a can. I've seen how they do electrical work with electric tape vs replacing the plug or using heat shrink. Yea, you may save money now, but you will pay for it later as the value of your car is diminished when you go to sell it, but to each his own, I guess.


Because he has no overhead, no insurances no licenses, no taxes, no building costs, etc. Since he is basically your employee, have you withheld payroll taxes on him and his brother? If not, you are now in violation of tax evasion laws. Where did you say you lived?
As usual, way too much common sense at work in your post and we both know common sense isn't common anymore. Another excellent post

I can understand. By the time the illegal alien got through working on the car, it may have needed a rear light too.

Were your ancestors slave masters? You seem to have all the same excuses to bring in illegals as they had to bring in slaves. Only illegals are a much better deal as you don't have to provide for them.

Luxury car, illegal slave labor, someone's not playing by the rules and thats not fair. This is the epitome of the problem and a hypocritical post. You've really done well for yourself and let the rest of us down

Then why not just shop lift since it's "so much cheaper". Integrity, get you some. Either way you are breaking the law same as a common thief.

That post is nothing more than illegal alien propaganda. It also reeks of falsehoods from an illegal alien.

Well, my illegal guy who does work around my house has been very good and cheap to me. Just today he fixed my car (i hit a pole as i was leaving a parking lot) and he only charged me $1183. If i took my car to the Lexus dealer i've would have to pay more than $7000. Cant beat that !
We only use him and his brother and they do an amazing job doesnt matter what it is. And they are NOT lazy like the Americans.
So, that's my story that i'd like to share with the Tea Party.
May be you could try finding an American that would love to have that work, may be for just a few dollars more. Give it a try sometime because, if we keep out sourcing our dollars to foreign workers, you may find you are the minority in a short while......

What part of illegal don't you understand ? You are breaking the laws of this country by aiding and abetting someone in this country illegallly. Doesn't matter to you, I see. You are only concerned that you get yours.....

From her other comments in other topics she is claiming to have come from Argentina in 2001 with her parents. Her dad is the Ambassador to the USA from Argentina. She claims to be 33 yo. so she got here at age 21 give or take a year.

This would explain her ideals and why she hires those of her ethnicity, guilt for being the Ambassadors daughter and living a better life than those below her class.
