Learn from stories around the country.

This page is a compilation of news stories from around the nation about illegal activities committed by labor brokers and, in some instances, their customers. Wherever possible, we have provided a link to the source of the original story. The one consistent thread throughout these stories is that wherever labor brokers go, trouble tends to follow - in the form of stop-work orders, mechanic's liens, bond claims, and government investigations. If there is a lesson to be learned from these stories, it is that there are serious pitfalls to allowing labor brokers to operate on your project.
