    Growers now are scrambling to find enough workers to keep their crops from withering on the vine and rotting on the ground. Each spring and early summer, thousands of undocumented workers, mainly from Florida, travel to Georgia and states further north to work. Charles Hall, executive director of Georgia Fruit and Vegetable Association, said farmers are finding only between 30 percent and 50 percent of the 11,000 farm hands needed to the harvest their crops, producing a labor shortage that will hit the industry with a loss of $250 million.

    The shortage clearly puts the lie to the myth held by critics of U.S. farming practices that desperate unemployed U.S. citizens will do farm work if it is available to them. The Georgia Labor Department released a survey showing that unemployment in Irwin County, where blackberries are a major crop, is at 13 percent, yet very few people went to the fields. Of those who did, the overwhelming majority walked away.

    More failed Republican policies.

    OK GOP, take a good long look at your "farm workers".

    Farmers won't keep them. They eat whatever they pick. They start out with empty baskets and end with empty baskets. Oh, and a "full belly".

    cut off thier food stamps and they'll work well enough.

    now, maybe you can tell us what NC laws were passed that would discourage legal migrant workers from coming here to work.

    This is indicative of the disconnect between rightist dogma and reality.

    The Georgia law, HB 87, which does not take effect until July 1, already has had an effect as farm workers are staying away for fear of racial profiling. Workers caught with phony documents could be fined up to $250,000 and get 15 years in prison — the same sentence for murder in Georgia.

    ---------

    Workers will stay away from the entire area.

    Georgia law has no affect in NC. Legal migrant workers have noithing to fear, illegal aliens shouldn't be here to begin with, and every person who showed up and walked off should have any benefit they recieve cut off... being outdorrs and hungry is a great motivator for lazy ignorant scum who refuse to work.
