Even if local law enforcement identifies illegal workers on a job site, unless there are undocumented minors or women present, ICE will not issue a hold. They will instruct local law enforcement to make copies of identification (Mexican Voter ID) and fax it to the local ICE office where they will review it the following duty day.
By that time, the roof is on and the roofing crew is in the next state over.
National roofing companies are real life storm chasers. They show up after declared disasters and offer a roof replacement today while the local roofing companies are swamped and wait times exceed one year. These national roofing companies understand home insurance rules and offer to take the paperwork burden off the homeowner, upgrade the quality of the roofing materials and even wave the homeowner's deductible in exchange for allowing the company to put a sign up in the front yard.
When everyone on the block has storm damage and the locals can't schedule you in this year, seeing your neighbor get a new roof upgrade this week at no cost to him is a strong selling point well worth the $500 write off for the placement of the sign.
If your roof is leaking you don't care what language the crew on the roof is speaking. As long as the national roofing company's contract is accepted by the insurance company then the homeowner is covered even if the workers on the roof are not.
Most knows when I refer to "WC" it means "Workmans Comp".. I should have spelled it out since you are still kinda new to old discussions.. My bad..

They are ALL still there. You just have to go back a page or so to the first of her posts.

If she didn't happen to right click on the post number when she copied it, that may have been the problem. Geeesh.

It was spam/copyright infringements. She blasted 4 or 5 posts of the bill trying to force feed us into reading it. Forget it, what there is right now canít be considered anything more than a rough draft of what a few senators want. By the time it gets to the end of the line we wonít recognize it.
Sorry. I didn't realize what you were. My bad. There's no copyright infringement. It's my work product, and I haven't complained to anybody about it. LOL

The insurance company requires the contractor to provide an I-9 for all the workers on the job but the insurance company never visits the job site to see if the workers are the same as the names on the I-9. Especially on a Saturday or a Sunday. They send out an adjuster before they approve the claim and they ask for pictures, paid invoices and an acceptance letter from the homeowner before they release the final payment.

If a roofing company sends uninsured employees to your home and one of them falls off the roof and tries to sue you for medical costs and lost wages, you may be liable. That is why the contract must include a liability statement indemnifying the property owner from such claims.
a paltry sum

Well, whoever you are you're wrong.

It was original work and some of us were very interested in reading it.

Even if it had been "the bill", legislation (even proposed legislation) is not copyright protected and is fair game for public discussion and display.

That is what this place is supposed to be all about right?

Care to try again?

Those two are missing. I made a mistake.

I saw PROPOSAL Part II and END. I thought I saw Part I.

I can admit to making a mistake without getting nasty and calling names. You don't seem to have that ability since it's so important for you to always be right no matter what.

You enjoyed gloating about a couple of NTR's posts being gone.

You got a cookie. Now grow up.

likely you'd be called a racist if you even questioned suspicious workers. You'd probably have some agency of the government harassing you. If you can afford the higher prices go with the all white workers. Too bad for legitimate mexican americans
I used to call WC inspectors out on big jobs (new construction) checking paperwork.. It becomes a safety issue for all legit workers on site..
