Default Partners In Propriety Plans

As part of the Partners In Propriety program, SOS will begin contacting a few entities up here where the program will begin. There are several opportunities, but one I'd like to revisit is our old stomping grounds so-to-speak, Home Depot. The agenda would be something like this. We contact several above board labor providers that will work with us by being an instant on-call replacement for day labor. We set up a spot near the day laborers with signs advertising the insured, documented, available services of the companies that partner with us. We contact the individuals or businesses that hire as they come in by asking them if they would like a safe, legal, and above board labor alternative. We give business cards of the company we partner with, and even make a phone call to get the thing rolling for them.

Where we set up, we'll have a banner made that shows our program name and SOS's name. My thinking is that this will give home depot and the local authorities less reason to be opposing us. It will also marginalize the day laborers themselves because we will be pointing out the need for proper hiring practices more than we will the whole illegals thing, and how it will benefit the whole community, including that of businesses. We will first ask HD to partner with us as well, but we'll have to have our other partners in place first. I'll be contacting labor ready and a couple others next week to start

Might sound a bit corny at first, but we need to try something new.
