why dont you tell him like you REALLY feel?
Well, he came on here and told us how much he hates Americans. Screw him! He can stay out of our country. I don't like his attitude.
That 1 in 4 apparently does not apply to the fields I drive by. It's more like 1 in 15 are not brown (keeps fuzz happy) and usually it's the supervisor.
In Ohio, farmers grow corn... Lots and lots of corn. I have never once seen a Mexican working on a farm here. I have seen them in every construction trade though.

Machine of course! But, there are several farms within 10 miles of my home that grow Alfalfa, soy beans, strawberries, black berries, raspberries, grapes and pumpkins which are picked by hand. With all this agriculture around me, I have still not seen a Mexican in the fields.

Oh yeah! One of my friends owns a tree farm. He hires a lot of local teenagers every year, but he wouldn't hire illegals. If he wanted them, he would only have to drive 2 miles to Home Depot and pick them up in the parking lot.

you guys don't produce a fraction of the agriculture we do in the south so its like comparing apples to oranges...litterally. In the north you have enough kids, hippies, and bums to pick your produce. Down here there arn't enough native workers to fill the jobs. Nor can the farmer afford to pay them.

Actually, we do produce a fraction of the crops of the south. We have winter to deal with, the south doesn't.

.

Farmers can't let anyone under 16 pick the produce, child labor laws prevent it. Bums won't work, that's why they're bums. The hippies are too stoned to want to work and won't stop munching on the produce. That only leaves hard working teens and illegals. Maybe our farmers just have more cooth than southern farmers, after all it was the northerners that got rid of slavery first.
