Fair enough. But I'll be expecting to see you picking tomatos in the fields outside our town.
Gee, how do the Japanese and other countries that don't allow mass immigration manage? I guess their citizens starve, or they all moonlight as farmhands.
It's your town. You pick them. :)
I raise and pick my own tomatoes and other vegetables and can them.....not a problem.....I also mow my own lawn. The problem is the government can't fleece our pockets as much if Americans have to pay more for their food and ADM, CONAGRA, etc. bottom lines aren't as good.......Why is it US citizens were able to labor in the fields 30 years ago and not now? Besides, a lot of harvesting has been automated......another lame excuse to turn a deaf ear and blind eye to the law.
How about you use one of these.
Tomatoes were picked for a long, long time before illegal aliens appeared under with the ruse that they were doing the work that Americans won't do.
And corn was harvested. And fruit was picked and steps were swept and cars were washed and children were raised and meals were cooked and...still are.
I always ask when people say this as to who do you think was doing the work BEFORE illegal aliens arrived? Everyone was doing the work, each and every day.
A lot of highschool kids can't find summer jobs today because most of what they'd be doing is taken by illegal aliens. Same with parttime workers, retirees and such. A lot of people are available to work but most labor is now filled by illegal aliens. I know most clerks in the local Target stores don't speak English.
No, I think we should all pay 3 times as much for tomatos picked by union workers.
