We use only highly trained, clean shaven, well educated, well groomed, uniformed crews with extensive background checks.

This is the answer everybody is looking for but it is far from reality. We use laborers. Very well supervised laborers. You know, the same guys that mow yards, renovate houses replace roofs and fix the streets in your neighborhood, Laborers! Even the modern postman. Although still uniformed, you now see beards, ponytails, tatoos, and piercings of all kinds.
I have hung flyers. My wife has hung flyers, my brothers and cousins have hung flyers. Our children spent many summers, and school breaks hanging flyers. We have people that have been hanging flyers for over 20 years. Over the years we have had people call them bums, wino's, drug addicts, low lifes and one of my least favorites, "those kind of people".

My answer to these kind of people is this;

The God I worship only created one kind of people. And there is only one race and that is the human race. All men were created in the image of God, and although that image is tarnished it is none the less true.

With the tongue we praise God and with it we curse men who have been made in the likeness of God.

James 3:9                                

This should not be.

As for bums, imagine yourself doing this. Its 105 degrees in the shade, but there is no shade. This means it is between 115 and 120 degrees in direct sunlight. Now imagine yourself walking from downtown Dallas to downtown Ft. Worth 6 days a week all summer. Thats about 30 miles or 8 hours of speed walking. You can also imagine yourself doing this when it is one degree above freezing and raining lightly, or pouring down rain or sleeting, snowing or the wind chill is 10 or 20 below zero. Bums? I don't think so. Very hard workers would be more accurate.
And as for wino's, 30 years ago most of our workforce was made up of what the world may call wino's or hobo's. There was Melvin Mayfield, he told me his favorite story dozens of times. He would ask "Hey Lee do you know where I was when the Jap's hit Pearl Harbor?" I would always humor him and say, "No where were you, Melvin?". "I was at the Navel Air Station at Grand Prairie Texas", he would say. But that was as far as he would go. He never got into the terror of fighting the Japanese all across the Pacific. And there was Hoot Gibson. Probably the saddest looking man I ever seen. From what I understand he was a flame thrower operator. He was one of the men that stormed Omaha beach on D-Day. You remember the movie Saving Private Ryan. Hoot would have been the guy shooting fire into the caves full of Germans. Can you imagine that, setting human beings on fire and see them burn and scream and melt before your very eyes. And that smell! So yes we are careful to not put labels on people that do not or can not live the way the world thinks they should live. Jesus says that as harshly as you judge others, the same measure that you will be judged.
Actually the people we use, more closely follow the way Jesus lived, and said to live when it comes to finances. How about, sell everything you own and give the money to the poor and follow me. Or the birds have nests, the critters have holes but the Son of Man has no place to lay his head. Or consider Moses, he was raised as a prince in a palace, killed a man who was mistreating slaves, and lived another 80 years in tents. Then there was Elija fed by ravens. John the Baptist lived in the wilderness on locusts and honey. It does't quite sound like the American dream does it, bigger houses, new cars, bigger, better, we call it keeping up with the Jones'. I'm sure God calls it a clear violation of the 10th comandment. Coveting.
So yes I believe our laborers are just fine even if they live in trailors, motels, the Union Gospel Mission, the Presbyterian Night Shelter or even a bush.

Blessed are the poor in spirit for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven. Blessed are they that mourn for they shall be comforted.

Matthew 5:3-4                                

Has not God chosen those who are poor in the eyes of the world to be rich in faith and to inherit the Kingdom he promised to those who love him? But you have insulted the poor. Is it not the rich who are exploiting you? Are they not the ones who are dragging you into court?

James 2:5-6
