So I guess they’ll be pouring down here from W Virginia or something in their own Grapes of Wrath tale.

I live in an area with a lot of illegals working the farms. So if his plan goes through (I doubt it will but it could), lots of empty farms needing workers without enough people here out of work. So I guess they’ll be pouring down here from W Virginia or something in their own Grapes of Wrath tale.

and several of the farms are now owned by 3rd generation immigrants, starting of as illegals but their families did the American Dream thing and now run what are basically communist style farms. There’s actually almost zero human rights problems among them, or among the white owned farms either. [except for one or two shitty ones that haven’t upgraded their on-site housing facilities but it’s all improved overall]

=====

Nah. They’re still work. But in their off-time the protest to get penny increases from wendy’s, Mcdonalds and stuff. I think they succeeded getting Taco Bell to add a penny last year.

=====

They’re just part of the ecosystem here. With them gone? Well, big vacuum, that part of the economy goes *poof*. But there’s an indian reservation there too, and they’re not going anywhere. Still, I’m expecting white folks from poorer parts of the USA to come rolling in and taking over the migrant jobs. as opportunities for them dry up where they’re at.

=====

Cheeseburgers? Nah, they’re all getting automated around here. All the fast food places did an automation overhaul about 9 months ago, the wrappers coming off. Some automation in the kitchen, cashiers almost entirely automated. Minimum wage jobs will disappear to automation. Inevitable. What happens then? We’ll just find out then

=====

I’m in the redneck part so nothing changes for me either way. Publix is actually a really nice supermarket. I think we have like 7 Walmarts in our city too. Strange place here but not bad. Super clean.

Oh they have “botique” butcher shops here too. The Publix supermarket have actual butchers in them. Good quality meat. Plus, they’re not overpriced, when they’re on sale. Solid supermarket chain, at least in Naples I’ve heard it’s not as nice in other areas but here, the aisles are wide and friendly environment.

I’m from NJ. You couldn’t move in their shit supermarkets and the prices were higher. Much nicer here.
