    I agree BMAC, same here in Canada. Lots of hard working people out there on the country side.

    For anyone on the otherside of the issue, tell me straight, how many homeland workers do you find working on the killing floor cutting meat? or like BMAC say, picking vegies?
    This is the way we work our economy, we need those cheap abundant labourers which ever way we look at this issue. And this leaves the hard working local work force available for better paying higher skilled jobs. Without those low skilled minimum wage workers, we cant develop the higher skilled better paying jobs....
    Just the way it is...its called "classes", People hate that term, but it was with us thousand years ago, and it will be with us a thousand years ahead....

    ....
    These hard working people of NY and Canada I suspect are somehow linked to the Land, else they would not do this kind of work. These "Linked to the Land" people are largely gone here in the South.

    The Famiily Farm still exists in the North.... at least to some degree, but it has been totally eradicated here in the South.

    It has not been totally eradicated in the south. I planted myself on a family run farm in Ga that has been there since way before the war of northern agression. In fact most of the land owners in Ga I put bees on have farms that have been in the family for generations.

    Often times when you find out the details of one of those small Family Farms you discover that it is really not self-sustaining and doesn't provide a living for it's family who nearly all work in town and use the farm as tax dodge.

    And some times it isn't fair. Some times some people benefit at the expense of others. I don't employ anyone regularly. But if I did I would hope that I would benefit more from my business than they would. Otherwise I should be working for them.

    People who work for others should be happy w/ the pay they get or they should negotiate for better pay or they should find other employment.
