Americans will not work in the fields picking veggies.
Maybe some may do a week or so. But their production is low and the quality of work is poor.
We need migrant farm workers.
Some are going to be illegal. So what stop whinning about ti.
If you don't like it go get yourself a job in the fields.

maybe the senate needs to check into state agencies to see if these farmers are looking.

they have easier access to the state e.d.d. websites than anyone else. all they have to do is log on and see.

funny how the cry goes unchecked and fools in office take the words of who pays them the most.
