Severe shortage of laborers in Houston hampers homeowners, exacerbated by Trump's immigration crackdown


It seems like manual labor (a great virtue with my own father during my own upbringing) is a real virtue now in Houston, as there is a severe labor shortage as homeowners struggle to repair homes from flood damage.


CNBC has a typical article here 
  
A major irony is that Trump’s immigration crackdown has reduced the labor pool available. A lot of homeowners would be glad to have the help of undocumented laborers (Chicago Tribune story).
