    Don't misuse words like "slave." It's irresponsible and offensive.

    If there are tomatoes to be picked somewhere in Southern California and some guy is unemployed in Cleveland, how exactly is that going to work? Simply comparing the number of unfilled jobs and unemployed people is sort of block-headed.

    But...but....but......even the illegals don't want to pick tomatoes anymore.
    They get paid nearly twice as much as people on social security now for sitting on their asses between elections and voting for Democrats. Democrats provide jobs riding buses from one poll to another casting votes. They also have to get registered so they can participate in Democrat Vote Harvesting campaigns after the polls close. This is how they turned Orange County CA from Red to Blue.

    If the wages were attractive enough people would have less an issue with relocating. I know plenty of people who are sick to death of working retail or dead end office jobs who would leap at the chance.

    Criminals should also have to work. Put the ones that can be worked back into the fields and quit pampering them. They could be helping pay for their own incarceration, make restitution and some could be put away for when/if they are to be released.

    Moving all the way across one of the largest countries in the world ain’t cheap. That kind of migration in large numbers would take time.

    Somehow Hondurans without a pot to piss in manage to travel across several countries for those jobs so I'm sure American workers will find a way.

    We've been basing policy on growing the macro economic GDP for 50 years.


    During that time, we have been ignoring the fact that the wages for Americans workers, have been stagnating, especially at the lower end.



    Yes, increasing population increases gdp.


    That is not the question. Pretending that this conversation is still stuck back on square one, is extremely dishonest.


    That has not been the question since the 90s.

    Serious derangement going on here.
    I got a better idea, anyone receiving welfare or an unemployment check within 100 miles of the tomato fields should be bussed up and put to work.
    But we all know how well that would work out if you could possibly get past RAAACCCISSM the left would cry... but in the end, the farmer would lose his crops because not one of them could take doing the work much longer than 3-4 minutes.

    No one is against immigration.

    What people are against is for unskilled, uneducated, people without money coming to America to live off of welfare.

    It foreign countries did what libs say they do- send America their very best citizens to be illegals, who would gladly only do jobs that Americans refuse to do, it would be a different story.

    Meanwhile, encouraging life with commonsense regulations on the abortion trade will help American have enough people in the long term
