That is a lie. They would, if it wasn't for the fact that minimum wage keeps getting raised and making the US people less marketable in a global economy. I know plenty of white people who do farming. They keep getting screwed by the corrupted government.
Wrong century? Which century are you referring to?There have been slaves of every ethnicity and skin color since the dawn of man.
Free the slaves?
Everybody that has a job is a slave. The paradigm shifted. Instead of forced labor in exchange for room and board the individual is given the illusion of being free by paying wages in exchange for labor. But the wages are clawed back through taxation, rent, utility bills, grocery costs, prescription medicines, etc.
Credit debt is designed, assisted by clever marketing, to keep the rat on the wheel until the rat (you) dies.
The individual enslaves himself.
The difference in this form of slavery is you can take a vacation from your labor for a week or two without the the dogs being sicced on you.
American citizens don't want to do those jobs period. No country's citizens want those jobs. That's why they used conquered people as slaves to do them, purchased people to do them, indebt people to do them, imprison people to do them under the guise of penitence, since the dawn of man.
I venture to say that all the products everybody buys today, including liberals and BLM activists, was made by unpaid, forced into labor slaves somewhere in the production chain. Our cell phones, the clothes on our backs, foods we eat, even the illicit drugs we overdose on - slave trade made.
Blah blah blah...yada yada yada... point is even if you believe that you don't serve a human master you are a slave to the dollar in your pocket - which you probably owe to someone else.
Ukraine. Billions of dollars given. Why you think that is? Freedom? Just cause? I think no - indebtedness is the reason. The wheel keeps turning.
I have NO problem with foreigners doing the work, but bring them in LEGALLY! If they're the only ones who will do the work then there's no reason to allow them to come in ILLEGALLY. See the difference?
The solution is not to ignore immigration laws, but to reform them. But even the most lenient laws would require detention centers to allow time for a cursory background check and processing of some form of basic visa.
The problem is no one wants to.
They keep piling up revisions of the same laws only for them to also not be enforced.
Plus look what happened starting in 2020 with a combination of lock downs between states and fear of Trump's deportation rhetoric, a lot of food production from farms to processing to factories halted, and food just rotted on the ground and we're still dealing with the shortages. Illegals not only didn't want to chance getting busted en route between states, many wouldn't cross the southern border or some even went back because of fear of Covid.
Now that scenario is something the law breakers point at to justify what they do, as well as reason for INS not to take what little action they already had been taking.
Maybe they should pay more than a few dollars an hour to attract domestic labor. You realize you're implying that agricultural employers are entitled to an exploitable class of worker. A "less than" so to speak. The "jobs Americans won't do" rhetoric is racist as f**k and quite dehumanizing.
Doubt this one can be found, but if you can find on YT or whatever Politically Correct ages ago with George Lopez as one of the guests, he tore the rest of the panel up. "Yeah, taking all those valuable strawberry picking jobs." It was so spot on that it was downright surgical, and funny as heck too. Plus he put Maher and the other 2 in their place so bad, they're still digging out,,,
Right. Like Trump hires the individual tradesmen and craftsmen who do the construction of his hotels or the staff of his hotels and such.
But, yes, it does bother me when any American business hires anyone not here legally, including Trumps businesses.
I still say one of the BEST ways to drastically reduce Illegal Immigration is to prosecute EVERYONE who employs them. That includes farming. If that means our food prices go up, so be it! We have been aiding and abetting this crime for generations!!
