    It's NOT going to happen. Americans are NOT going to volunteer to work out in the hot fields, picking crops, for $4 an hour.

    The crops WILL rot in the fields.

    What would be BETTER would be for America to invent ROBOTS to pick all the crops. THAT is the kind of thing that made this country rich in the first place.
    Thanks from HCProf

    Liberals are the only ones that can use sarcasm, that has been on display here for years. When the right does it they are racist, or insensitive, or you name it. Same shit different day.
    Thank you for the compliment but I'm sure you didn't mean to give. I never claimed to be so intelligent, but obviously you think I am. We never tell an ugly girl that she think she's so beautiful, we just say that to a beautiful girl.

    Minimum wage is what much more than $4 per hour.

    Do you support importing slave labor and paying them $4 per hour to keep your vegetable prices down? Even if we did allow work visas for crops there is no moral explanation for exploiting their labor to keep food prices down.

    Oh, I KNOW you are intelligent. We are rarely on the same side, but I read your posts, I'm aware of how smart you are. I'm not afraid to give compliments.

    Many people that I disagree with are very intelligent. I don't understand their way of thinking or how they consider things rational, but some of the most genius people have been hard to understand.

    Minimum wage doesn't apply to everyone.

    US Minimum Wage Exemptions: some Agricultural Workers, Baybsitters, Disabled Workers, some Seasonal Workers, Executives and more

    Thanks for the link.

    Do you support this when it comes to agricultural workers? This needs to be addressed if we are importing slave labor.

    I think if we want cheap food subsidized, then maybe government and wealthy taxpayers should be taking the hit, and not agricultural labor.

    I have a feeling, though, that the ones providing the nation with food have more than 500 man days per quarter of work, and/or don't pay piece meal. I think a majority of what feeds us are driving million dollar machinery and are already subsidized.

    Do you only make $4 per hour picking vegetables? That's shocking.
