I got a list of contractor requirements today from one of my customers.

They added a new one.

3. An English speaking foreman must be designated per each job at all times.

I thought it was quite humorous.

In florida it is hard to find anglos on a job site. They are usually going to be plumbers and screen cage monkeys. Masons, concrete, tiebeam, roofers and landscape will be Mexican/Guatemalan/Honduran. Tile guys tend to be Brazilians. Electricians are usually Cuban. At least the Cubans will have La Mica. If the wrong looking van comes down the street the rest of them will be heading for the trees.

How is this English-speaking foreman going to communicate with his crew?

In my area in Florida electricians are 98% white males.

"If the wrong looking van comes down the street the rest of them will be heading for the trees."

Be sure to shout in you best latino accent "LaMigra", thatll getting moving even faster.

HL, they really mean bi-lingual.

My wife says this is really more of a guideline.
It goes;
"Do you speak english" ... "Yes"
"Did you order all the fans" ... "Yes"
"Are the guys going to be here tomorrow"
... "Yes"
"Did you fly here on the space shuttle" ...
"Yes"
