The toughest in the nation immigration law passed by Alabama is having a serious effect on their ability to farm. Apparently, no one is signing up to do the work the immigrants have abandoned.
This is not a great economy, with nearly 1/4 of every able-bodied person out of work. So it's pretty much going to be proof positive if Americans in the South, especially within Alabama, are going to take these jobs the "illegals" have given up.
We'll find out if farmers can afford to even pay citizens the minimum wage, and if so what will the price increases be on the produce.
Thank you, Alabama. I look forward to the results!
