Excerpt
Excerpt: This manual strives to fill a gap in policymakers’ knowledge regarding the best ways to approach complaints concerning day laborer hiring sites. This gap became undeniably apparent to us after responding to requests for assistance in different neighborhoods in Los Angeles, and communities beyond, both urban and suburban. In meeting after meeting with irritated business owners, angry homeowners, and frustrated police officials, we would discuss the all-too-familiar problems regarding day laborer hiring sites.
