I don't give a s*it if your white, brown, purple, green its not humane and very unethical. I personally have been sending letters to congressman in California asking that these farm owners have accountability for cheating the system out of paying taxes by hiring illegals and on the humanitarian side for basically having slaves in this day and age. Sometimes it sickens me how its all about the politics, but never the care of a human being. Totally sickening and hypocritical.
My point is, if we didn't have people working for under min wage,
they would have no choice.
I don't know why you're going off about working conditions in fields,
they are working illegally, so have no protection from the state for water,
shade, breaks, etc... If they refused to work for that money, and in those conditions, it wouldn't happen.
If they were working legally, labor and industries would force them to give the workers fair working conditions. You want to work and not pay taxes,
then you're going to have to deal with a little bit of BS.You can't expect the government to protect you, when you are paying for it, can you?
But to be honest no, I don't really care about people who CHOOSE to work for almost nothing, and not pay taxes. I have a hard time doing that,
Esp in California, where they are going to cut 40 billion dollars out of the state budget this year because the number of illegal immigrants PASSED the number of legal citizens.
