In this part of California, most yard work is done by small companies
run by guys named Jose or Pablo, who can charge maybe 2-3x minimum
at most before the competition undercuts them.  And they have to
worry about blacklists also - "business licenses" and "immigration papers".

It's not corporate slavery when you don't have to work for them.

(Just because I don't believe in the concept of "corporate slavery"
doesn't mean I don't think corporations can be offensive.  This sucks...)
Out of curiousity, I thought the UK had Data Privacy Laws or
