And how do you & "out of work" know that they are illegal??!! Have the two of you asked to see their visas? And ACE is not the only play where these men stand and wait for someone to hire them. I'd say good for them. Let them work. One would never see another race standing their for hours waiting for work & times are hard. If they're illegal it's a different story but neither one of you know that they are illegal. So ignorant.

But I try and work some of the local populous and they all have so many "issues" that it makes it impossible to get a days work out of them. They want to go to work but they have to get paid "under the table" so it does not mess up there disability. Then they have to leave in the middle of the afternoon to take their wife, girlfriend, baby or mother to the doctor. Then they can't show up to work the next day because they have to stay home with their wife, girlfriend, baby or mother. And to top it all off, they want to get an advance before they ever show up at the worksite.
Absolutely right!!!! I know a handful of people right now getting paid under someone else's name so that it does not mess up their disability. My father ran an ad in the paper for landscape help at his house. Ran this for two weeks and he received a few bites but nobody wanted to do it when they found out what all he needed done. He finally went to good ol' ACE, asked who wanted to work and about 10 Hispanic gentleman did not hesitate to offer to work. He picked one and about two years later, this individual still does work for him. Oh and guess what, he is very much legal and his children speak better English than Spanish & they participate in all kinds of stuff in our community. Like I said, pure & simple stupid ignorance on a lot of these posts.

What would be funny if one of theses wetbacks took one of these builder or homeowners wife's from them bet you wouldn't like them so much then. I am a Mexican hater and would be willing to take it up with anybody who has a problem with it. I'm white and work as hard as any Mexican. Most of you loud mouths on here bragging on Mexicans are to lazy to do it yourself and to cheap to pay somebody to do it right so you hire a Mexican. You should be put in jail for it

Many locals do work under the table and collect welfare for their families. I call that a thief . Think everyone should start reporting these people and maybe they will try as hard to support their families as the Hispanic community. Don't see the locals standing out in the hot sun and rain willing to take whatever is available.

we're really committed to shopping local, but over the years that Ace has always put us to the test - glad to hear someone had a good experience there - for us the place is full of men who aren't really comfortable dealing with anyone except other men, who know exactly what they want, quickly...
if you're thinking of a creative solution to a problem and can almost picture it, they're no help at all, and even if you know exactly what you're talking about/looking for, if they don't personally know (and there's lots they don't know), they have no humility or interest - simply dismiss you...
the cashiers are always nice though..
Moral of the Story:

Men -- if you need something, don't send your wife go get it yourself.

Women -- If your husband insists on sending you to the hardward, write down exactly what he needs. Let him draw a diagram if necessary.

If anyone hasn't noticed, there are now signs out side of ace, saying no one can hang out in the parking lots also they are in Spanish. So the message has been put out for all the Mexicans to see. Ace is a wonderful place and I have never been let down by anything I have bought from the store.

Ace hardware lied to us about a discounted appliance we purchased there. They said it was returned and gave us the reason as 'the customer found it cheaper elsewhere so returned a perfectly good machine back and there was nothing wrong with it nor had there ever been. We got it home, installed it and it didnt work. We had the registrarion card that had been filled out by the person who returned it, so we called them. She said that the appliance didnt work and ace hardware had sent out a repairman on her behalf and it still didnt work so they brought it back. Ace hardware put that machine back on the floor and sold it to us under false pretences. Shocking!

I will never buy anything from ACE until they stop letting illegals sit in there parking lot looking for jobs, and shame on anyone who hires them hires them.
The problem nobody up here wants to work. All they want to do is sit on their butt and collect disability. It's really sad and disgusting.

How do you know theses people are illegal? Do you check green cards? They may be locals that collect a goverment check and work under the table. Pretty sure that's illegal?

Their mexicans? Are you sure or do you just assume anybody with a darker complexion is Mexican?

We have hired Hispanic men from the Ace area to do yard work. We have found them to be hard working, respectable and appreciative of the opportunity to earn money. I, in return bought their lunch and paid them a very fair hourly wage.

I do not know if these men were illegal. Not my place to ask. But, I do know one thing...they jumped at the chance to work. After initially offering the job to several local men and being stood up numerous times, we went to where we knew we could find good workers!
So, bash them all you like, but next time I will NOT waste my time begging a local to earn an honest days pay.
