I challenge any American kid today to go out in the fields for a week and see if they last. Ha Ha.....first getting the suckers out of bed at 5 am, then packing themselves a lunch (aint not McDonalds out there), next dressing in the "uniform" to keep from coming back in so sunburned in the evening, taking a crap in SMELLY out houses that are swarming with worms along with the stench and the heat, taking a half hour lunch with your nasty hands full of blisters and crap, and not under shade in most cases, bringing home a whopping paycheck of what maybe 35 cents sack now, because back in my day it was 5 cents. The big reward is not your aching back, or blistered hands, not even the horrible sunburns, but the lovely "perfume-a-la-onion" that stays with you until Christmas time. Yes, just wait for the long line across the fields full of applicants. I'm sure you will have to hire security to keep control of the mob.

WOW! you're so full of it! What do YOU know about picking anything but your nose? Americans don't want to work in the fields..it's hot, back breaking, bugs bite, plants scratch, thorns,dusty and it's dirt pay. They barely can find shade to sit and eat lunch. So until your fatsss gets out there and picks something besides your nose..****! You're hallucinating.
