Total B.S. Half my family is Amish and I would be too if my Grandparents hadn't left the church. They got greedy like everyone else who is in up to their eyeballs. They may be polite and well mannered and have a true sense of work ethic
but they are just as corrupt as everyone else they are just more disciplined with their lifestyle than most "OMG will I have to sweat" English types. As far as having to hire an English person to run the truck OK; but E-mail I know of one farm in LaGrange Co. that was owned and operated by English and the only Dutchman on the payroll was the IT guy!!!!

Employees don't pay into unemployment. Only employers pay the tax. It's time somebody calls B.S on these Village elders and the dumb reporters that listen to their every word.
