    Farmers Say Ala Immigration Law Could Cost Crops

    GOOD HOPE, Ala. (AP) — Farmers in one of Alabama's leading agricultural areas asked legislators Monday to make emergency changes to the state's tough new law against illegal immigration, saying millions of dollars of crops are at risk in coming weeks because of a sudden lack of hands for harvest.

    When I was a kid in Illinois I performed field labor every summer. I do not see why we need Mexican to do it now.

    Some president in the 60's already pointed out that America's economy depends on illegal immigration, because American employers arent willing to pay proper wages for hard labour and instead abuse illegal immigrants who have no other choice than to take whatever work is offered to them at whatever payment.

    But somehow they didnt understand their own system of demand and supply. When supply of labor force is scarce, the price for labor rise. Easy as that. The profit greedy employers though think they could dictate the price for labor and then find themselves in the position that their fellow countrymen wont work for that slave wage, and thus import illegals to do the slave work.

    No surprise here
    Ein Leben ist nichts, deine Sprosse sind alles
    Aller Sturm nimmt nichts, weil dein Wurzelgriff zu stark ist
    und endet meine Frist, weiss ich dass du noch da bist
    Gefürchtet von der Zeit, mein Baum, mein Stamm in Ewigkeit

    I hate to say it but I think the country as a whole has become lazy. Mexicans didn't always do this sort of work.

    We've become reliant on immigrant labor. Part of it is because of greed, but how many whites/non-white citizens ever want to do manual labor?

    It's not like we're unique either, it happens everywhere in the world.

    It's especially bad because when you start to rely too much on immigrant labor, the immigrants start demanding rights and privileges.
    Proud to be Germanic.

    Even though my ancestry is English, Germany is my favorite country.

    I think that rather than the indigenous population becoming lazy, they're just not prepared to work for the pittance these employers are paying.

    Actually, nothing much has really changed in this respect because Alabama farmers would once have shipped in Negroes during the Slave Trade to do this kind of work. The only difference now is the nationality of those concerned and the fact they're being paid just a little bit more!

    If not for cheap illegal migrants, mechanization would have advanced by now to make manual labor obsolete in many areas of farming. The UFW & Hispanic groups have actually lobbied against research for mechanization. Make labor more expensive & farmers will have to adapt to survive.

    Cheap illegal labor has made large corporate farming possible for truck farming (market gardening), with large farms (exploiting cheap Mexican labor) putting smaller family farms out of business. Smaller family farms for truck crops would be more suitable then the huge corporate farms that dominate areas like California's Central Valley.

    Farmer's suicides

    Suicide rate of people working in farming , fishing and tree-logging in the USA is said to be almost 1 of 1100 ( 84,5 / 100'000 ) ,
    five times more than the average in the United States .
    In France it is around 20% above national average .

    The 1980s had a similar peak in suicides back then , related to a strong Dollar,
    high oil prices and loan interests, reduced exports and sinking prices for agricultural products.

    The reason now is named loan interests , since the size of the farms have doubled since the 1980s .
    Of course , there is the risk of the current trade wars set up by Donald Trump .

    Income of American Farmers are said to be 1/3 lower than four or five years ago .

    No media outcry it seems .

    Swedish language :
    En stor studie gjord av Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) ...

    I år ligger den genomsnittliga inkomsten inom lantbruket i USA 35 procent lägre än 2013, ...
    http://www.atl.nu/lantbruk/storst-sj...kanska-bonder/


    Furthermore for the meat processing industries of butchery, there are on average
    still two amputations by cuttings each week in the States overall .
    Mainly fingers and fingertips , occasionally something else like toes , eyes, hands and arms have to be written off .
    The total number of severe accidents therein is on an all-time low , though : 17 a week !

    Swedish language
    Arbetare inom den amerikanska köttindustrin löper tre gånger så hög risk att drabbas av allvarliga skador jämfört med andra yrkeskategorier. För dem som jobbar med att stycka nöt- och fläskkött är förslitningsskador sju gånger vanligare än för genomsnittsarbetaren. Det visar statistik från USA:s motsvarighet till Arbetsmiljöverket, Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).
    ...
    Den dystra statistiken till trots så minskar antalet olyckor inom den amerikanska köttindustrin – enligt US Bureau of Labour Statistics har antalet rapporterade arbetsplatsolyckor inom den amerikanska slakterinäringen aldrig tidigare varit så få.
