Of course not. Why would I say that such tariffs should be put in place if they were already in place? Simple common sense.The question is does this tariff exist?
You live in a "reality" where new laws cannot be passed?Again lets stick to reality.
Thus the need for tariffs and other taxes.The reality is the farms already pay more than other countries do and by a lot.
Thus the need for tariffs and other taxes.And because of that they have to charge more.
Thus the need for tariffs and other taxes.Because they charge more people dont buy as much.
Why do you have the preposterous belief that changing the current lwas is not a realistic option?With our current laws, without injecting fantasy, what realistic option do these farmers have?
False.As far as I can tell they can
Raise prices and offer more for labor which would result in them losing their farms
Americans lazy asses can go work for the 9.25 hour and support themselves and hope not to get robbed by the idiots who think crime is an alternative to labor
If you are just talking abut what the farm owners can do, they can:
A. Raise wages to a fair level commensurate with the effort which Americans and legal immigrants are willing to work for, potentially losing their farms from it but if that happens, it was the farmers own stupid decision to become a farmer when they new it required exploitation of their work force to be sustainable that caused their woes and nothing else.
B. Hire/exploit illegals who are willing to work at that pay because they have severely limited options
C. Get into a line of work where they can make their living honestly without needing to exploit others for personal gain
They have no control over what Americans will or will not work for, nor should they. If they can't find employees at a level which the economy will sustain, then they have to find a new way to earn their income. Tough **** for them. It's not the American workers duty to break their back to sustain the income of these farmers. Nor is it the duty of the illegals to do it, but illegals have limited choices so they are easily exploited by said scumbag farmers.
I feel about as bad for these farmers as I do for the idiots who buy big screen TVs from Wal Mart that are made in China that bitch about outsourcing jobs.
The real problem is that people in this country will not pay higher prices by choice in order to sustain their own economy. Companies only care about their own bottom line and profit margins (which is all they should care about) so they will sell these fools what they are willing to buy, no matter how much doing so ****s them in the long run.
