That's a very lame attempt at justifying breaking the law and contributing to the cycle of lowering wages.

Oh yeah, I have jaywalked. What of it.

How would I know about the legal status of a restaurant's employees?

Thanks for the reminder of Craigslist. I am looking for the same but don't want to hire these illegal workers as a single woman. Has anyone had good experiences with craigslist and the services they advertise? Thanks

I'm sure there are plenty of people who have had good experiences, but there's also plenty who have had bad experiences. The key is to understand what you're getting- when you hire someone from Craigslist who's unlicensed, uninsured, and willing to work for $20/hour cash, you can't expect the same level of quality and professionalism that you'd get if you hired a legitimate firm that needs to charge $20/hour just to cover overhead.

And not to mention the "what ifs"..what if they get injured while working on your property? There goes your house!!! I would shop around for a small, local, licensed and insured contractor. Make sure they carry "worker's comp. ins" as well. If they are a sole proprietor and have no employees, they don't need comp. ins. Or call your homeowner's ins. co. as some cover you for uninsured contractors/laborers... saving pennies may cost you big dollars!!!

I read the post as wondering if there are places in New Jersey such as Manpower, Daily Work/Daily Pay, etc.

Those places are popular in "Right to Work" states. I would occasionally go to them for work in between jobs when I lived in Florida, which is a "Right to Work" state.

It's harder--often just impossible--to find those places in other states, because so much is unionized. 90% of the jobs we'd get sent to do one could not do in New Jersey without belonging to the relevant union. Even when those types of places do exist in states that are not "Right to Work", there are not many jobs they can send you out to do.

You can find tons in Journal Square (in front of building) along Summit Ave. Im sure they will work for a few bucks an hour. Also, alot of homeless people might take you up on offer. I saw them everyday to work! Jersey City just offered so much to see!
