Technology is a great thing and it can make many tasks easier. But even with all the advances in technology some tasks are done better and faster by
humans. Harvesting food is faster and easier now because of technology but certain crops still require manual labour to harvest. Like fruit tree's.
Humans have thought up ideas like shakers to shake the fruit but we still havent come up with a way that is better than sending a human up a ladder to
I am sure we will think of faster more efficient ways to pick fruit from tree's and asparagus from the ground in the future but until then manual
human labour is the best way.
Unemployment is a massive problem in America. I find it odd to read about labour shortages. Why did Asparagus Growers have to leave more than 10% of
their crop behind due to labour shortages? Many seem to be saying that there are no longer enough illegal workers from Mexico because they are
returning to Mexico. Are American really so lazy that an unemployed American wont pick asparagus for a days pay? Why does America have a farm labour
I know the stereotype of your typical American is an obese, gluttonous, sloth-like imbecile but Im not so sure we can blame the average American.
The other factor to consider in this so called 'farm-shortage' is that Americans are known for their corrupt culture. It seems quite common for
Americans to have illegal immigrants as cleaners, gardeners and all sorts of horrible jobs. Americans even joke about this. I know that in Australia
if anyone pays 'cash in hand' it is a serious matter. Paying someone 'cash in hand' avoids tax and it hurts the system for everyone. Could it be that
these American farmers that are calling their fellow Americans lazy moochers wont pay the legal minimum wage? I am sure there are plenty of Americans
that are willing to pick fruit for minimum wage. I just dont believe that with so many Americans out of work that there is a genuine labour shortage
for farm labour. To suggest that Americans are that lazy is absurd.
Many large business owners and corporatists want to see western governments openly support foreign labour. They are obvious.
The media tried to blame the Greek people for what is being done to them. The lazy Greeks. Now we can see the same tactics being used against America.
The lazy Americans are so lazy they would rather pick some foodstamps instead of an honest days work picking asparagus.
It seems that corruption is quite normal in American society but to say they are a nation so lazy that they need Mexicans to do all their hard work is
absurd. Are Americans really so lazy?
