OUTSOURCING FARMS?

Rate this Entry

A thoughtful reader sent this article from the NY Times. In response to a lack of labor in the US in the wake of the immigration crackdown, some farmers are simply buying land in Mexico and moving their farms there. If you like depending on imported oil, you're going to LOVE depending on other nations for our food. By the way, if you think this is just one or two little farms, the Times is reporting American farmers are now running farms on 46,000 acres in just two Mexican states.

    This makes sense for farmers why wait for Washington to get their act together when it comes to working people. They have a business to run and like the guy in the article says their clients do not want to hear excuses they want product. I think that this will create jobs in Mexico and may alleviate some of the pressure on people to migrate here. After all a big driver of Immigration is the lack of jobs and opportunities in their native countries. The flip side of these is that this will definitely affect job creation in these States where the farmers are living. By the way I like the fact that he cleared up and addressed the fact that regardless of his wages it is his personal experience that Americans simply do not want to do this farm jobs.
