Victor Davis Hanson was talking this so called shortage on a Ricochet podcast. There are tons of children of immigrants who could work the fields but they on are welfare, disability, etc. So these farmers have to bring in a fresh crop of serf labor every few years to make up for the flow into the welfare state. How do these farmers need labor when there is Spanish level unemployment, 20% and above, in the Central Valley of CA.
My solution is simple, you want welfare? Okay.
You will recieve 1/4 of your monthly alotment right after a 40 hour work week is completed. This will continue as long as your employer verifies your attendence and poarticipation. Too much for you?
Here is option #2
Here are your coupons that are redeamable at the local goverment pantry that has cheese, canned meat, powdered milk and potatoes, rice and baby food if needed. If you are caught trading or selling the coupons you will immediately be removed from those recieving ANY government assistance.
Otherwise head south cause that’s all we are offering.
