Most of these jobs are in seaside and resort towns. Check out girls, maids, landscapers, the notion that harvesting blueberries is a skilled labor is funny stuff. I'm not sure of your point or what point you think I made that you are arguing against.
Harvesting crops or picking crabs efficiently and effectively isn't something a person can do just walking in off the street. And when you're talking about foodstuffs that can't sit around for any amount of time without spoiling you don't have time to train people to do it in a timely manner. Not that many native borns know how to do those things. I wouldn't have the foggiest notion how to pick blueberries at a rate and in a manner that the farmer is going to make a profit and the farmer doesn't have time to teach me.

You've been suspended a hundred times more than me, and you call me the troll?

You are just making shit up. training someone to pick crab takes 10 mins, they become efficient at it in a day.


blueberry picking is a menial task, these h2b's pretty much all are, to act like it's nuclear research is laughable. What are you arguing here though what is your point?

I know how to pick crabs. That doesn't mean I can do it efficiently and I doubt seriously I'd get up to speed in a day.

I didn't say that the work isn't menial or that it's rocket science. But most native borns couldn't do the work well enough to be profitable. It's been tried. We just don't do it well. That's my point.

Dude, it was tried in 1965. It has nothing to do with those darn lazy kids today. And if you'd bother to read the second article you'd see that farmers have tried to get native borns to do the work.
