2008 is a Bad Year for the Day Laborers on Hearst Avenue in Berkeley, CA

There looked to be about 60 day laborers hanging around looking for work on (William Randolph) Hearst Avenue on the west si-iide in Berkeley the other day.

What does Truitt & White, “the Professional Builder’s Choice,” think about the advisability of employing the people on the street in front of their store?

We will not make any recommendations on using the Day Labor standing on Hearst Avenue or the surrounding area.”

Fair enough. What is the typical rate of pay? No matter, business is not good these days. Not good at all.
