The House is expected to vote Wednesday on the hilariously misnamed Farm Workforce Modernization Act, which would modernize agricultural labor right back to the 17th century. At the core of the bill are several indentured-labor schemes intended to tie current illegal aliens and future temporary workers to farm jobs for four to ten years before giving them Green Cards.

Honestly since we are not fixing the real root of the immigration problem, i anm not bothered by this new requirement.
No GREEN Cards!
What’s wrong with the braseros of old? If decent people want to come to the US and work, make it legal for them to do so without automatically granting them the rights of citizens or permanent residency. If is wasn’t for illegals in Wisconsin, there would be no dairy industry. They are mostly good, honest, decent, hard-working family people
Either chop cotton muchachos or go back to your native country.
Democrats, working hard to bring back slavery.
Can you say.....”Indentured Servitude”?
When these “slaves” become citizens, they are not going to vote for the Republican Party, like they did in the 1860s and 1870s.
So indentured servants. Sweet!
The Democrat party is and always has been about legalizing slavery.
This is Mexico’s idea of job security
Next up: we all go back to mud huts, cuz they’re enviro-groovy
How about they figure out how to automate those jobs.
Gosh, National Review (a former conservative rag), it might cost employers more than hiring illegals!
Another thing that’s going back to 1699 seems to be the weather, large parts of the wheat harvest in western Canada had to be done with snow on the ground (since late September in some parts). Of course it would be worse without this global warming. (yeah right)
Automate those jobs?
Machine-picked strawberries tend to be a bit too pulverized into mush for my taste.
I’m pretty sure that used to be called “indentured servitude” a couple of hundred years ago-and it is frowned upon now-will the ag workers have to live in primitive cabins on the plantation without leaving, too? Maybe I’m weird, but I think it is more sensible to make that ag/farm work part of another welfare-to-work program-pay the welfare takers to do that work-also make the work a minimum wage 1st job for teens-and college students in Summer-make them learn to really work for money-no need to import immigrants as virtual slaves-I grew up doing farm and ranch work on our family ranch-I learned to like making money and developed good work habits along with a liking for exercise and staying strong-I actually still have farm/ranch work skills if I need them...
The best way to melt the fragile little snowflakes and teach them to be useful people might be to make them work where there are no safe spaces with teddybears, crayons, naptimes or blankets...
Thats re-legalizing slavery. It was legal when the Democratic Party was formed and for decades afterwards.
So I can get a cute Mexican girl to come work “my fields” for the promise of a green card? Wooohooo!
Color me - can I still say that? - just a little skeptical.
“”Whats wrong with the braseros of old?””
It worked for a lot of years in CA and also around the country for different crops at different times of the year. People were happy to have the work and then go home. What changed? Democrats promised something for nothing, I guess!
