PHOENIX - Many of the cars that once stopped in the Home Depot parking lot to pick up day laborers to hang drywall or do landscaping now just drive on by.

"Nobody wants to pick us up," Julio Loyola Diaz says in Spanish as he and dozens of other men wait under the shade of palo verde trees and lean against a low brick wall outside the east Phoenix home improvement store.
Ariz. law could drive day laborers out - Life- msnbc.com

It'll be interesting to watch how this law affects the local economy. I wonder if we'll see an increase in wages for U.S. citizens who want to work in construction in Arizona.

I am happy for one to see this taking place in Arizona and plan to the best of my ability to contribute to Arizona's economy, as I did for NY after 911. An expected adjustment will smooth over with final normalcy once more.

Tough call. Why I say that since we are dealing with the worst downturn since the 1930's and even if all the illegals left.........there would still be quite a few American/green card holder construction workers out of work

Lets see, who will miss the day laborers?
Scumbags who are too cheap to hire a licensed contractor.
Scumbags who are too lazy or too stupid to do their own yard work.
