Hello All,
Any day laborers in Stafford County/Fredericksburg to help in with small house improvement projects. In zip code 22406, minutes north of Route 17. Please let me know where I can get help for one full day of work.
Please let me know where they gather in the mornings and what time?

U-Haul and 7-11 are the most common places. Craigslist if want to find people that are actually insured or need people that speak fluent English.

If you're going to hire someone to work in your home, they should be licensed, bonded and insured. If they are not, your homeowners insurance won't cover it if they get injured.

Of course I agree with you and was just answering the guy's question - I assume he asking about day laborers, many of whom are illegal and don't have insurance. Personally I would never hire them for inside the house work, but I know people that hired them for outside stuff and were actually pleased with their work.

Anyway, how realistic do you think day laborers suing a homeowner for medical bills happens? If they are uninsured the taxpayers are already paying for it anyway.

Per the bolded---It happens more often than you think. There are groups that help them find lawyers to take their cases pro bono. BTW, homeowners insurance applies to your entire property. If they get injured outside and aren't licensed, bonded or insured, your insurance still won't cover it. This past winter when Winter Storm Jonas hit, we had some people come around looking to make some money shoveling. Much as we would have liked some help, we weren't about to risk having them get injured on our property.

Good to know. I've thought about hiring some of these guys to help out with a few small projects that I wasn't going to hire a contractor for. I have used them to help me move a few times but stopped because I was afraid what might happen if they fell off the back of a truck or something.
