"US campaign focuses on immigrant farm workers
(AFP) 16 hours ago
WASHINGTON The United Farm Workers union on Thursday launched a campaign to see how many US citizens and legal residents are willing to take over the jobs of 1.2 million illegal immigrants who toil in farms across the United States.
Amid growing debate over how to deal with some 11 million illegal aliens living in the country, "Takeourjobs.org" aims to show how difficult it is finding legal farm workers, even with national unemployment skirting 10 percent.
"We want politicians to understand, on both sides of the aisle, that immigrant workers are not the problem," UFW president Arturo Rodriguez said in a telephone press conference.
As states like Arizona toughen laws on illegal immigration, UFW issued an Internet call to all legal US residents to register for jobs currently filled by illegal immigrants, on farms and in the food industry.
"The food we eat at home, at restaurants, comes from labor of undocumented workers. If we deported them it would collapse," Rodriguez said.
Opponents of immigration reform shot down Congress' last attempt at providing a path to legal residency in 2007, insisting that the millions of undocumented workers are taking jobs away from ordinary Americans.
The Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), which believes in tightening laws against illegal immigration, estimated in a report that it would cost US taxpayers 700 billion dollars to provide 11 million people with residency papers.
However, farming and service sector businesses regularly complain their job offers are rebuffed by legal US residents.
About half of the 2.5 million farm workers in the United States are illegal immigrants and another 35 percent are not US citizens, according to Labor Department statistics quoted by Justicia for Migrant Workers director Rob Williams.
"I would challenge the politicians to come down. The view and the temperature is much different out in the fields that in the air-conditioned offices," he told a press conference.
In economic terms, he added, a farm worker's average wage is half that of other non-skilled, non-farming jobs elsewhere.
A bill to extend temporary work permits for undocumented farm workers in the United States has been languishing in Congress since May 2009."
