Day Laborers Aid Rebuilding

Staten Island -

Day laborers looking for work are a common sight on street-corner shape-up sites around the city. Some immigrant workers, though, aren’t waiting to be hired. They’re volunteering on weekends to help Staten Islanders rebound from Sandy.

The workers, organized by El Centro, an immigrants rights group, say they want to use their talents to give back to their adopted country.
