Georgia farmers need workers
I saw this on CBS This Morning today, and it basically says that crops may rot in the fields because foreign nationals are not allowed to come in to pick the crops.
<"Domestic labor just don't want to do this kind of work. It's unfortunate to say, but they just don't want to get out and do hard field labor anymore," White said. >
If unemployment is getting so high, it seems that some people might want to work on the farms, just to have a better income. This is another example of how we are not self-sufficient.
Do you think that if wages for farm workers were higher than Americans would do the work? My father had a large farm and had trouble getting workers, but I think unemployment was very low where he lived. I know he didn't pay very much, but he would get high school students to work in the fields in the summer, despite the intense heat in Texas. Do high school kids not want to work in fields any more?
This will likely affect what we will see in the grocery stores, according to the article.
