Default RE: Only in California

I saw a piece on the news this morning that one California farmer was having such a hard time finding labor, for his lettuce ranch,that he purchased land in Mexico and is now raising, picking and processing his crop in Mexico. The local(Mex) economy prospered, he has "legal" labor, and by providing jobs, in country,"may" be affecting the flow of "illegals" into "our" country.

It is "outsourcing" of a sort, but it seems like a win/win situation to me. If they developed a chain of operations along the Mexican side of the border perhaps THEY could all "stay at home" and we wouldn't need a fence! [img]../images/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]
