And for some reason, our state's farm industry has a sudden severe labor shortage. I wonder... nah, probably no connection.

You know who the farm owners are being told to hire in their place?

Prisoners.

:lulz:

Who the fuck is telling them that.

Probably the for-profit prison industry...   :horrormirth:

Makes perfect sense, doesn't it?  Wackenhutt gets paid to move illegals, house prisoners, and then pimp them out to businesses, so said businesses don't have to pay a living wage.

They're getting paid 3 ways.  There's a level of evil genius to that.

It's worth noting that the private prison lobby is the largest lobby in America.

Quite so.  The founding fathers never intended poor people to live into their 40s.  Haul 'em off.

OH HAI CRAM!!

Nice xpost... horrifying that someone could actually write that in a document and then hand it out to people...

Roger, well, maybe they would be a little upset that some of the prisoners were white... but otherwise, it wouldn't be all that different from what they were used to. Oh yeah, we've come so far!!!

Fact:  No White people were ever arrested during the 18th century.

Quote
The head of Alabama's agricul­ture department is pointing farm­ers desperate for workers toward a potential labor source: Correc­tions department inmates.

Some farmers have said that the state's tough new immigration law will cause unpicked produce to rot in the fields.
John McMillan, commissioner of the Alabama Department of Agriculture and Industries, said Thursday that he and officials from the Governor's Office, the Industrial Relations office and the state Department of Corrections are looking at short- and long-term solutions to a potential labor short­age.

October 24, 2011 Alabama farmers are facing a labor crisis because of the state's new immigration law as both legal and undocumented migrant workers have fled the state since the strict new rules went into effect last month.

So far, piecemeal efforts to match the unemployed or work release inmates to farm jobs are not panning out, and farmers are asking state lawmakers to do something before the spring planting season.

Farmer Guiseppe Peturis has a small operation — growing mostly vegetables on his family's 20-acre farm in Belforest, Ala. — and selling them on the corner in front of his house. His retail business has suffered since he appeared on the local news saying Alabamians don't want to do hard farm work.

Peturis says he's a Republican, but is no fan of Republican Gov. Robert Bentley's plan to get jobs for out-of-work Alabamians by passing the nation's toughest immigration law. Among other things, it calls for police to detain suspects if there's reasonable suspicion they are in the country illegally.

Peturis says he's tried to hire through the state unemployment office before, but didn't have much success.

"Two of them left in 30 minutes; didn't even tell us they [were] going to leave," Peturis says. "One worked an hour and says it was too hard on his back."
