LOS ANGELES -- Companies that open large home-improvement stores in Los Angeles would have to set aside space for day laborers under an ordinance unanimously approved today by a City Council committee.
The proposed ordinance was passed by the Planning and Land Use Management Committee, but must still be approved by the full council.

If passed, the ordinance would require new home improvement stores that are 100,000 square feet or larger, or any building or structure where 250,000 square feet or more of warehouse floor area is added, to set aside space for day laborers seeking employment from customers.

The shelters would have to be easily accessible and equipped with drinking water, bathrooms, tables with seating and trash facilities.

Home-improvement stores would also be required to develop a security plan in consultation with the Los Angeles Police Department.

It's pretty unlikely that legal workers would resort to random day labor. Most of those people prefer to work through agencies that provide transportation and job scheduling so these are illegal workers. Essentially, the city is saying that stores must facilitate what amounts to an illegal act by harboring illegal aliens and supplying them with potential employers. This is insane.

Of course itís nuts - but if you donít, the illegals congregate there anyway, urinating on the sidewalk as kids walk to school. By not enforcing the laws that are already on the books you end up with stupid compromises like this and American law enforcement agents detained, in Arizona, by the Mexican military.

True. We are the fattest, laziest, and overpaid society on the planet.

Itís like feeding the pigeons - they just come back the next day. Pay a decent rate - youíll get an American. I do. And all of my employees are American citizens. Itís not that hard. If youíre a thief at heart, youíll always try to cheat the system, because you know the honest business owners will pick up your tab.

My Dad hired some of these knuckleheads to do a job for him in Dallas and it was some of the crapiest workmanship I'd ever seen. I pointed out all the flaws and when it started to fall apart six months later his recourse was.....nothing.

Sadly under either candidate nothing on the border is going to change. :mad:

This has to be a regional thing. Mr. Snaps goes to hardware stores more often than hookers go to night court. I've been in and out of many of them, often. There are no flocks of illegal aliens loitering around these stores out here.

It's very common in Southern California.

I believe it. I expect most of those people have money and a low skill set.

How nice, give these lovely people even less incentive to pursue their own improvements, like education, documented work, and GREEN CARDS!!!:mad: Why are the craziest people still defining reality? Oh yes, because the stupid people keep voting them in. :mad:
