Housing Recovery Spurs Pickup in Remodeling

duck33 | Jan 23, 2013 10:40 AM ET Last week when the weather was a little nicer I road my bike around the island I live on and counted 15 construction sites all but one were mexicans speaking spanish as they worked. Mexican stealing the American`s job and sending their paycheck to mexico while sending their children to school and the hospital`s for freebees is one of the knifes in Americans back sponsored buy no rule of law. If you want justice you must seek it yourselves.........

mapollo | Jan 23, 2013 10:41 AM ET Bathroom remodels run about $5,000, kitchens if everything is replaced about $20,000. Half the cost if the owner can do the work themself. Milllions of intercity homes will be torn down. No demand for the area, because of no jobs.

squirtbert007 | Jan 23, 2013 10:49 AM ET Easy there Cowboy..... It`s hard to please all the Special Interests that use this site to fake out the market! When do think the wall street crooks will be charged for their crimes against America??

americannovice | Jan 23, 2013 11:09 AM ET No wonder the parking lots at my local Home Depot is full.

americannovice | Jan 23, 2013 11:12 AM ET duck33. I don`t see Mexicans. I see another human being as we all are God`s Creation.

americannovice | Jan 23, 2013 11:14 AM ET mapollo. A weak spot in housing at this day and age sounds like a buying opportunity?

knetaz | Jan 23, 2013 11:31 AM ET "If you want justice you must seek it yourselves........." Felon much?

BrianBallsOfSteel | Jan 23, 2013 12:18 PM ET YOU DO NOT KNOW if those mexicans are citizens or not...did you ask them? a LOT of mexicans around here are citizens and run crews of contractors and work on those same crews...some are legal, some are not... but if you are a hispanic foreman, and half of your crew speaks no english, what language do you think they might speak? saying you can tell if someone is a citizen based on what language they are speaking is out and out stupid...and shows an exceedingly low intelligence.
