I work for a dairy. I've been doing that for around 15 years. No milk apocalypse coming. Morning cereal is safe.

Illegals keep prices from rising, food stamps drive up prices. Illegals are needed for the welfare state to exist, no illegals then welfare gets cut. The able bodied zombies will come crawling out of moms basement to get a job, maybe find some self respect and learn a skill, socialize with real humans, learn the value of a dollar.

Let's get the heart of the matter. Milk is so bad for you. It's about as unhealthy as it gets. Do some research.

This really isn't a big deal. We'd be so much healthier as a nation if we'd just start eating healther food not laden with antibiotics and steroids and who know's what else.


Milk is not bad for you? I don’t know what you’re talking about. Sorry that you been brainwashed.

Milk is not bad

Farms here in California rarely have “illegals” as they aren’t exactly a high labor commodity. Just hook up cows to machines instead of picking strawberries from sun up till sundown. You don’t need a large labor force that would benefit from using cheap labor.

I agree that when you describe what milk actually is, it sounds bizarre and horrible. But that goes for just about all food. "Yeah, I roasted for you this swollen root that grew outside in the dirt alongside bugs and worms !" Bleh!

That's probably a good thing, considering the vast majority of our milk comes from frankenheifers pumped full of hormones and steroids, eating foods they were never intended to.

Less people buying milk might actually improve the overall health of the nation.

Sad but true. Shouldn't be drinking the s# anyway.


Farmers don't want to use RBST anymore. They noticed cows die younger when they use it.

Interesting premise. In Washington St., the number one Ag product is apples. I've spent a goodly portion of the last five years operating in that arena. Many Mexicans- most will match the work ethic and life-style of any 'gringo', by the way.

The majority of the apple house have merged or been absorbed into large, Federally watched, operations. The Mexicans receive the same wages as the white workers. If there are exceptions, I haven't run across any. The apple house won't even interview 'locals' even though they apply!

The companies know they can't get away with lowered wages for Hispanics and no long even try. They are still skimpy on work conditions and 'overtime' pay which the local complain about.

So I don't buy your ten dollar per gallon milk. The milk industry is far less labor intensive that Ag products and milk, apples and the like are far cheaper than Canada's....at least out west, and will remain so.

Big agriculture is heavily subsidized. They let strawberries rot in the field and claim "blight" so they can get the crop insurance, paid for by the American taxpayer.

That's just one example of scams run on the taxpayer by corp. farms.

Complain about a poor single mother getting food stamps but corporate welfare marches on; growing subsidies!!!

I drink milk everyday. I'm five ten, one hundred fifty pounds and healthy as an ox at fifty five. So.....you drink what you like and let others drink what they like. Hate food police. Generalization suck.


All that despite ingesting secreted bovine fetal juices daily. I'd keep an eye on the oestrogen levels, though. Mewbs are unsightly on short stature men folk.

One guy gets arrested so you think milk prices are going to go up?

Do you think this is the first person on a dairy farm to ever be arrested?



The only guy that was 'tri-lingual' English; Spanish and Cheesehead. I'm certain they're more concerned about cheese prices. Maybe this will hand the torch off to the Goat cheese Cheddar???

I have the family farm leased out growing cotton and onions. The farmer won't even bother to harvest the onions if the spot price drops to low.

It's astonishing how many members still live in the Mayberry RFD of the mind.

This argument for illegal immigration always confuses me. I thought everyone including the left all want higher, livable wages for workers. Illegal immigrants depress wages. Or is it they just want liveable wages for Americans, not brown people coming here to work on farms? Is the OP actually supporting wage suppression and exploiting immigrants so he can have cheaper milk? Or is this a cheap ploy to talk me into supporting illegal immigration?

Illegal immigrants should be paying US in fines and fees for being here illegally. Period.

I'll pay more for my milk that I CHOOSE to buy. I won't be forced to pay more for schooling, roads, medical care, social services and so forth.

Kick them all out back to their shole countries.

Blood out a stone.

Start throwing the CEO's fat asses in prison for 3-5 years and I guarantee illegal aliens taking jobs for 1/2 pay will stop and stop fastly.

Ahhhh, someone who is thinking and not professing what the media is churning out. The media is owned by 6 huge corps. And those corps more than likely own news outlets and businesses that save huge $$$ by exploiting illegal immigrants.
This is why the these large corps should not be allowed to own both. They can not be objective.

Exactly. The people championing incentivizing people coming here illegally at great risk to themselves and family across deserts and in shipping containers, etc for peanuts are at the same time encouraging the exploitation to continue with no sense of irony or self-awareness. I don't get it.

Go hard after the businesses. Enforce heavy fines for violators. Figure out an expanded work VISA program including for the "DREAMERS" that pays back into the treasury and pays in part or full for extension of services. Expand availability for citizenship for skills that we want/need. Ensure fair market wages for everyone instead of exploiting people's legal status.
I'm all for healthy immigration that is a win-win.

If you think not paying them is going to stop them from coming here, you’re in for a rude awakening.
