Day laborers fill a need

SC Sentinel “As You See It” 08-07-12

I must disagree with Julia Hansen’s recent letter protesting the day labor center. I’ve worked in construction for 25 years, and the jobs the day labor center will connect workers to are mainly jobs most other folks wouldn’t do. These are low-paying hard jobs with no benefits other than some hard earned cash in your pocket [not much]. If I thought these jobs were being given to undocumented workers at the expense of those here legally I would agree with you, Julia, but that’s not been my experience.
