"In Georgia, where lawmakers passed an immigration bill that requires employers to use [E-Verify], undocumented workers have stopped working. As a result, Georgia growers 'have been forced to leave millions of dollars’ worth of blueberries, onions, melons, and other crops unharvested and rotting in the fields' according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution. All told, Georgia now has lost nearly 11,000 agricultural jobs that pay between $8 and $11 per hour. Those jobs once belonged to undocumented workers — or 'slaves,' as Fuller and Kenric would call them. Now they belong to no one." (06/23/11)
