This has nothing to do with a result of pushing out illegals and Everything to do with our entitlement systems in our country. Why the hell would people go off of welfare to work when the 'gubment' gives them money for food, provides free to low-cost housing, medical coverage blah blah. The only thing required of them is to sit and watch Montel/Oprah all day

Yeah, entitlement system. As in FARM SUBSIDIES. After not paying illegal wages to illegal workers, farmers are claiming they are going to lose hundreds of millions worth of produce if our esteemed gov Deal (who was run out of the house of reps under investigation) doesn't now come up with another cheap ass solution that won't take a dollar away from their profits. This is your wet dream free market in action baby. Although I would be less concerned about the pittance the welfare rolls have compared to the cash the farmers will get to let this food rot in the fields and increase prices even more.

I expect these job listings to continue to be ignored by legal residents and USC's, Georgia has an unemployment rate of 10% so you would figure that people would be lining up to apply for these positions but sadly that's not the case, the Governor has to send in former criminals and current ones to fill these vacant spots.

Why on earth would a 300lb, out of work for 3 years, crack addled, father of 13 deign to work outside in the heat? That's hard work, when holding your hand out is easy.


Try unemployed urban folk with No means of transportation to the rural areas to get the job. Not everyone unemployed is how you so eloquently grouped them.

How do illegals with no drivers license get here from mexico or get to work same problem.

The farmers are willing to go round em up at home depot since they don't have to pay em squat. Or they can afford to live about 30 to a home near the farm for the season. Illegally. What's wrong with you folks that think these jobs are right across the street or accessible by public transportation? Minimum wage doesn't pay for a cab ride 50 miles out and back each day and put food on the table. I think you're the ones that feel entitled. Entitled to pick on those who may be less fortunate than yourselves. Not everyone can have your "earned" lifestyle and Ford focus with the fair tax sticker on it.

Never been on welfare, have you?

Stop preaching from ignorance, please. Go on, jump the boat and go out on welfare, man. If it's so goddamned posh, you shouldn't hesitate.
