    How can someone call themselves a good citizen and be doing business illegally? What if that farm hand gets hurt in a machinery accident? By being illegal and being paid under the table they don't exist. Please don't give farmers a bad name by perpetrating this lie.

    Im not sure why we are attacking the immigrants for this "lack of jobs" we are seeing.. how about their employers who are choosing to be greedy and selfish by employing the ones that they have to pay the least. Or better yet, the law makers who made our current policies that allow employers to pay undocumented workers way less than minimum wage as well as not offering any worker's compensation. It makes for a very unfair playing field for everyone in the US all together. We need to have regulations in place to prevent these type of things from happening. I see alot of peoples rebuttle solely based on the statement "well our fresh food prices are going to raise." If the prices raise, i hope that pursuades some to start their own venture into gardening and producing their own food. & for others like me that live in an apartment that cant, im at ease about paying more for my fresh produce knowing that the hard laborers that picked it by hand got a fair wage for the type of back-breaking work they are doing for 8 straight hours in the sun. Because in the end, just like you and i, they are working to provide for their families who are just as important to them and my family is to me. I AM NOT BETTER THAN ANYONE, NOR IS MY LIVE WORTH MORE THAN SOMEONE ELSES. we should all be valued the same.

    Maybe farmers shouldn't take advantage of their willingness to work for less than minimum wage.

    Pay a good wage and you'll have plenty of workers.

    Why would the price of wine go up when a majority of our wine comes from either Europe, New Zealand or South America

    Americans complain about not getting work because of immigrants. But the reality is that these Americans do not make the attempt to look for jobs,

    Part of that is due to the minimum wage. Of course with a shortage of workers the price of the labor will go up, possibly spurring automation.
