  •  Grab the nearest crate and fill it with (0+ / 0-)

    strawberries. Time it.  

    If every plant has fruit, it takes hours.

    The point is, it is not hourly wages.  They quote $15/ hour but not even superman could pick that much.  It is an entire family picking fruit while only one person is being paid.  Thus the farmer can claim plausible deniability that he pays $15 an hour.  He does not.

    •  My solution to that would be instaneously (0+ / 0-)

      grant US citizenship to any worker who showed up to pick strawberries.

      That would in essence remove any leverage the farm owner has to illegally mistreat workers.
