Need REAL Stock Footage Resource

Ugh! Hours wasted. I am creating a video for a client of 100% stock footage, 100% people working. However, my normal "Go To" sources that we are all used to: iStock, Pond5, Dissolve...for some reason they like to hire models and it looks so fake. So unbelievable. It's as if the people setting up these scenes have never participated in them. For instance, men driving fork lifts wearing ties. Construction workers with brand new hard hats. 95% pretty people...

And when I do find something usable they only have it in Slo Mo! Do they think that's artsy?

Does anyone know of some good stock footage sites that have a more "real" look? Any companies specializing in a documentary, real world style? I don't care for Video Blocks.
