    who were a generation off of the farm.  

    When I saw this law go into effect, I figured it would be the farmers that suffered the most.

    the only blame I place on them is that they did not fight hard enough to stop this law.  Now that they are looking at a horrible 2012 growing season, maybe they will do what they can to reverse this law properly.

    The difficulty facing farms in this country that are not run by the congolmerates come largely from the shift to a service industry base in this country.  Who wants to pick veggies at $10-12/hr when you can make almost that much flipping burgers at a chain?

    There are those who do the jobs here that citizens feel are beneath them.  These workers are the ones that need protection from exploitation in order for us to keep our standard of living.
