It reminded me of George W. saying that sometimes he had to go into work on Saturday. And he kept saying "It's hard work!!" Like.......DUH!
I think the next 4-8 years are going to be great. I'm not a Trump fan, but with the other choice being Hillary, that's who we were left with.
Im more concerned with Supreme Court pics and getting rid of the corrupt Justice Department.
If prices need to go up to fill the jobs that illegals are now doing, why would that be such a bad thing? My sons business is already picking up a little work due to the new policy's. He is in the landscaping business. It's hard to compete if you hire legal residents and pay taxes etc.
and i thought his speech was fine, most here were not going to be happy regardless.
I think the reality is that if farmers had to raise the wages for picking fruit/vegetables to the point that American workers would be interested in the jobs the price of American fruits and vegetebles would probably rise to the point that they couldn't compete against imports. Other countries have plenty of dirt and cheaper workers.
I don't think agriculture can be competitive with wages enough to attract American workers, but other industries maybe could be (construction for one). If anyone actually wanted to have a real immigration policy we could have a discussion of this, but that's not the case.
If you want something to get done, ask a busy person. If you want them to have a nervous breakdown that is.
Sales increased, perhaps because people cared, perhaps because wine has a weird market and may be a Geffen or Veblen good to some of the purchasers.
Employee retention increased, productivity per worker increased. When the dust settled, we were doing more, with fewer workers, while making more profit.
This may not be the case for lettuce producers.
