On my way almost anywhere from my home/Three Stone Steps worldwide headquarters here in Southeast Baltimore, Maryland, USA, I see men–almost always men–and almost always Latino–waiting around near the 7-11 and a few other corners hoping, just hoping, that someone will pick them up for a day’s work, mostly on a construction site.

How about you?
