Sorry I have to disagree with you on this one, and I am against "illegal immigration"!!! But ... he is right. American's won't pick lettuce for the wages they pay in the fields. I live in the Central Valley of California. Probably 97% of the farmers have gone to automated picking machines, like this lettuce picker ... (Salinas Valley, CA)


Hmmmn. I wonder why the machines are taking the place of people to work in the fields. Go figure. It used to be if you had a family, and could not find work anyplace you could always to pick fruit and vegetables. Not anymore. It is below most American's to do so.

Someone whose name is "greenpartyaz" - which I assume means Green Party Arizona? .... should know that.

Out of touch ? He's right. WTF are you talknig about. Americans have become as lazy as Europeans. We farm out all the hard work to immigrants who don't mind working hard. What is Obama's stance on illegal immigration ?
