Around here it was local teenagers and 20 somethings who did the bulk of the farm work. Colbert should try picking rocks from fields here in the southern Michigan fields for a couple of weeks.
I heard it is cheaper to pick grapes for wine in Australia than it is in California, even though CA relies on Mexican labor for picking and Australia has automated grape picking because there is no migrant labor there.
America used to lead the world in automating unskilled jobs out of existence. Now Unions fight every attempt. A little automation would go a long way toward eliminating those “jobs Americans won’t do”.
