    Phillip said it very well. Unions are bad news in most situations for the workers. The bad news comes in many forms.

    Ask any farm employee what they think of overtime after 8hrs/day 40 hrs/wk and you will get the same response....hell no! These guys know that as soon as that law is in effect they won't get overtime, the farmer will just hire more workers to get the job done and stay under the overtime rules. Farming is different than most industries in that it is so seasonal, most of the workers will just be that much poorer if this law is put in place. Not to mention there will be that many more illegals here to fill in the labor gap once farmers need to hire more people to get the same job done. This is just typical union BS doing anything they can to try and bolster their shrinking ranks.

    I am all in favor of farm workers receiving fair and equitable wages. Overtime for over 8 ours and/or 40 hours a week. I am also in favor that it is mandatory for employers to
    e-verify all farm workers making sure they are here working in the United States LEGALLY. No phony SSN's or identification. Fair is fair.
