the farmers that are complaining about the current legal system in place for hiring foreigners to work there farms want slaves to work their farms.

that is why they are not adhering to the current laws in place.

a minimum wage is a CURRENT law. we have child labor laws in place.

these farmers are breaking the law, and they are doing this with impugnity because the federal government is not enforcing the laws.

since the government is not enforcing the law, why should we be following them?

Do you have the slightly idea about how much per hour a good farm worker can make per hour? You clearly don't. It is way higher than the minimum wage.
