Dear Alabama

Dear Alabama: Congratulations on chasing all of your cheap labor out of the state and now no one is picking the tomatoes and other farm products.

As an American, I’d love to do the work. No problem. But you MUST pay a living wage. Minimum wage for 8 hours of work and NO benefits plus a long drive to work isn’t going to put American’s back to work.

All those workers that you chased away? They were an important part of the economy- not just for having jobs but SPENDING their wages in the LOCAL economy (sales tax revenue, rent, retail). Now that money is missing. Oops.

Good luck climbing the castle with that…
