I'm in the Monta Loma neighborhood regularly and don't see the "blight" that the day workers hanging out at El Camino and San Antonio display. Plus, I regularly hear how they help the neighborhood out. The fact is, the day workers aren't going away. Shuttling them around at the behest of the NIMBYs only prevents them from integrating into the community, which if anything would cause the problems people worry about. What I *do* see in the monta loma neighborhood is that there's plenty to work on to improve property values that has nothing to do with day workers, but rather the property owners themselves.
