How To Be The Cheapest Cleaning Service
Cheap keeps on selling. And there's really no way to stop it because, well, it's so cheap.
Maine-- A man who formerly owned a cleaning company has been sentenced to a year in federal prison for harboring and employing illegal aliens.
Manuel Antonio Cornejo, 30, who waived indictment and pleaded guilty in January, is believed to be the first Maine employer to be sentenced in U.S. District Court for hiring undocumented workers. Cornejo also was sentenced to three years of supervised release after he gets out of prison and was ordered to pay a $3,000 fine.
A native of El Salvador, Cornejo went to work for a cleaning company and started his own business, M.C. Cleaning LLC, shortly after he became a U.S. citizen in 2006.
You already know that you get what you pay for. And in the cleaning business, you can be cheap as you want to be - assuming that you ignore all local, state and federal laws.
Cheap means hiring illegal aliens. Cheap means stealing from our government. Cheap means that you'll hire just about anybody - whether they've been convicted of a crime or not. Cheap means not purchasing insurance. But cheap also means that you pay less than your neighbor.
Anybody can start a housecleaning business. And inevitably, just about anybody does.
