Where do you guy get your crew members from?

I've posted ads on CL and indeed without much success. I'm down to a one man show at the time because I just can't seem to find reliable help. On the other side of town my buddy found his guys for cheaper than I pay and has had them for years....

Try using your local Unemployment office...here in Neveda it is called Job Connect...
If you're going the CL route tr looking into local labor ready programs. We have one here...most are ex-felons but the catch is they pay for 50% of the wages for the first 90 days....
But we get a better caliber of applicants when we use other methods. You should be able to post an ad on your local ob search/connect office's website...
We have had far more successful employees from there than CL....

Homeless shelters. Cup of coffee, a couple donuts, a BigMac at dinner and a days wage when completed. Paid in cash. Less than $200 cash no receipts are needed for the Uncle. Never had a bad helper BUT had a ton a bad stories.
