Hmm, what about Polish workers? No, serious, over here, there are
no Mexicans, nor orther unhealthy ceap workers, and the lettuce
gets still picked. Well, large farms use robots. And hasn't it
be you, Sallam, who noticed that prices are quite low? So the
old argument that the ceap workers are to give you low produce
prices is a myth. All it does is making somebody inbetween rich.

It isn't that simple either way.
