A recent Huffington Post article discussed the labor crisis in America and how undocumented Hispanic laborers are stepping in to jobs that require very demanding work such as lawn care and landscaping. A response to the article stated:
“I have a friend who has a lawn care service and he pays 10-15 per hour with a guarantee of 20 hours per week, rain or shine. He rarely gets Americans to apply.”
Through our website, www.StartALawnCareBusiness.com, we get to speak with many lawn care business owners and people who are thinking about starting their own lawn care businesses. It is no doubt that the Hispanic labor force has had a dramatic impact on the lawn care industry from a labor standpoint.
Since have almost 20 year’s experience in the lawn care industry, we speak with many people who are thinking about or in the beginning stages of starting their own lawn care companies. We are noticing an increase in the number of Hispanics calling us to ask advice about starting their own lawn care companies. In fact, many Hispanics who have worked as lawn care laborers are now taking the first steps in starting their own companies.
Tell us what you think about this.
