Family of a farm worker is calling for his freedom after he was arrested by ICE officers in Wisconsin
This is breaking news in Wisconsin,
I don't have a link because is is breaking on FB
I have a feeling that milk is going to get real expensive soon. Either people with be ok with higher prices for American
worked/made products, or they will miss the cheap labor we have grown used to and will demand changes to the immigration system.
Can't have it both ways. When milk is $10 what will people say?
Just think about our food system, immigrant make up a huge portion of that population. Don't get me wrong, i'm not saying it is good that illegals
have been doing this type of work (for slave wages), but we all know we have let this go on for so long.
People that think Americans want these jobs are wrong, ask the farmers.
"Wisconsin farmers have said it is nearly impossible to convince Americans to take the jobs"
Sure if they substantially raise wages, and improve conditions, but that is going to add a lot to the cost of milk, and other dairy products.
I live by a lot of farms, nobody wants to do this work, it is backbreaking work.
Something I have always wondered, why aren't we seriously going after the people that employ illegals, Super high fines, jail time, public shame?
If companies know there are severe repercussions to hiring illegals there would not be incentive to hire them, no incentive less reason for people to
want to come here on their own?
"There has never been much public or congressional appetite for a harsh crackdown on employer "
