But paying living wages for farmwork would, of course, require the rest of us to pay a lot more for food, become much more protectionist or both. If the country isn’t ready to take those steps, here’s an apostasy being whispered by some economists: get rid of large-scale agriculture altogether. England did it and is content to buy the bulk of its food from foreign producers. Less food security, perhaps, but also less need for guest workers.[/quote]
Keeping up with the immigration debate, largely targetting Latinos in the US, I came across this interesting analysis.
Is that true that there are agriculture industry in England? Or all of the UK?
I was hoping some of the Forumosa UK members could fill in some of the details on how does agriculture work in the UK that they don’t need to import labor.
