Cause and effect

Bad things seem to happen when voters put social-engineering wingnuts in charge. Maybe they should think about that:

A study by the Georgia Agriculture Department of the state farm workforce shows that finding legal employees with the skill and desire to do labor-intensive harvesting is extremely difficult.

The reasons, says a report released Tuesday of the study’s findings, include the complexity and expense of government programs intended to help farmers employ guest workers, and the physically demanding nature of many agricultural jobs.

The Agriculture Department undertook the study after Georgia’s legislators passed a measure that targeted undocumented immigrants. The state General Assembly asked the agency to conduct a study of immigration’s role in the agricultural industry, which the report described as “the state’s top economic driver.”

Farmers participating in the study said they have suffered roughly $10 million in crop losses because of the law, which many say has driven away workers.

  1. Yeah, these idiot legislators here in Ga. thought they’d be in line with the other idiots in Alabama, Arizona, etc. But they cut off their noses to spite their faces and now they’re in deep shit with the farming community. MORONS!

  2. Woodsider, that would be very disruptive to the plans of the 1%. They can’t keep accumulating wealth if they give some of it back to the 99% in the form of higher wages now can they? Interestingly a recent study indicated that 50% of the worlds 1% are Americans. It would seem that the 1% in America aren’t satisfied in stealing just our wealth, but they are stealing everybody elses wealth around the world as well. And people wonder why airplanes go crashing into places like the World Trade Center?

  3. One way on another the agricultural economy has required slavery to function. The next voice you hear will be one insisting that they go back to chain gangs and prison labor to harvest the crops, and requiring the unemployed to work on the farms.

    You heard it here first.
