    I would never make that admission publicly because of the EEOC implications, but I can certainly understand why you would want to do that. I worked in restaurant management for quite a number of years. I can say without reservation that, as a group, immigrant employees worked circles around the native born ones. Period.

    Now don't go spouting off about how "I would work circles around blah" because I am not talking about individuals as there are always exceptions. I am talking about the group dynamic. The sum of the parts.

    What are you talking about??? The amount of compensation is the same no matter who we pay. It is a matter of how many headaches we employers have to put up with. Do you have any idea what it is like when several of your employees don't show up for work or call you 30 mins. beforehand and say they can't work today?? This is an everyday occurance during the summer, and honestly can be very frustrating.

    Talking

    Oh, if thats true how is my friend working for your uncle 4 days a week instead of all 7. Maybe we are talking about someone else. I understand what your saying though. If I was paying kids and they didn't show up I would take out the belt. wack them with my pimp hand strong.

    ya, but honestly how often is the surf good during the summer. Like 2 or 3 times. Me and my cousin are going to share one so when the surf is good I'll just have him work it. He is afraid of big waves anyway so it works out great. I just want to know if I would still buy one.

    I probably shouldn't go so far as to say "only" Russians, but I can say for sure that there will be fewer local students and more foreigners. Now, lets get back to surfing!!!

    If you want to make any decent amount of money, you won't hire anyone. You'll work it yourself. I'm no expert, but I strongly suspect that the profit margins are such that you probably need more than one stand if you expect to pay a staff and still make some money.

    But what do I know. I'm just a cynical old man.
