I ain't the one mandating a minimum wage to stick it to those evil dairy farmers as you are.
Although you are saying that, I certainly don't remember saying it. I also didn't propose a maximum wage. So take your strawman and shove.
You have accused me of not doing what I know about.
I also know how to till the soil, plant crops, harvest them, and sell them at market.
I know how to drill for oil.
I know how to drive semi trucks.
I know how to arrange international shipping.
I know how to lay pipelines.
I know how to manage water and waste systems.
I know how to build computers.
What I wish I knew how, is to avoid foolish people making follish arguments, not unlike yourself. You always inspire a reexamination of the ageold question. Do dumb people really know how dumb they are?
I ain't the one akin to a govt. beaureaucrat telling a dairy farmer how he should run his farm.
Apparently in addition to, not thinking well. You neither write or speak well either.
That's what happens when one gets into a hurry. It should have read;
You also neither write or speak well.
In your case not to worry. Reapply for your high school debating team, and I am sure, if you really apply yourself, they will let you participate in your senior year.
Why don't they just get tue bureaucrats out in the fields to register these workers and give them guest status, then start mapping where they go and when their time is up make them find their own way home.
30 million of these guys in our country, our govt is NOT telling the truth on the sheer numbers here.
10 million in Los Angeles County alone.
I would say 10 million in the whole state, but that is MONSTROUS!!!!
I heard a discussion of this on some radio talk show. It appears that the Canadians aren't fooling around.
But if I understood correctly, someone on the program said the number of Canadian guest workers was about 7,000. Can that be correct?
The key to their program is that guest workers are not on any path to Canadian citizenship, and that they go home after 9 months. The House/Senate need to get their heads out of their butts and design something similar.
Philosophically, I would have to say that it wouldn't pass, though. Our guest worker program must have a "Path to Citizenship" or the politicians won't consider it.
I've heard that ICE uses trained Chupacabras to smell out illegals. Spread the word.
"Brown said hed been using Mexican workers since 1999.."
and therein lies the problem, DO NOT USE MEXICANS IN AMERICA
My uncle had a dairy farm in N. Dakota. He had milking machines and no illegal workers. So I guess it does work for some. Anyone knows that farming is hard work and farm equipment is not cheap, but in the long run does make it somewhat easier.
Only 20 miles from Buffalo???Got to be some poor people in Buffalo that need jobs.
down $20,000????? How much extra $$ did he make over the years using illegals for labor???
I didn't think we'd have to worry about the homegrown spinach. Re: the article, those towns mentioned are in my neck of the woods. The farm jobs used to be hotly sought after jobs for the high school kids. Every big box store and fast food joint that's opened up over the past 25 years has siphoned off all that potential teenage help.
