Re: “Hispanic Chamber applauds Ducey education, business efforts

"Those kids can take a $5,400 debit card out of their local district school and take it with them to a private school," Farley said.

Sorry Farley, but you only did half the math. there is a $5400 credit to the school expenses that loses the child. It is a net zero sum gain. Less students equals less teachers equals lower payroll and matching taxes and benefits thus fewer buildings.

Please try to tell the whole story next time.

Re: “Crop Conundrum

Field conditions are what they are. Farm work is what it is. Just how does Bslap propose to improve working conditions? I worked the fields as a kid, picking strawberries, hoeing the fields, cleaning the barns. If he thinks he can find "Americans" at any price willing to do that work, he is smoking some weird stuff.

I am not a fan of giving illegals an easy path to citizenship, as they are here illegally, but the H2A visa system is necessary and needs to be expanded.

Re: “Crop Conundrum

"it's that they don't want to work, or at least work for us" -- raise wages. Improve working conditions, etc. You'll then find plenty of workers. Americans will work, but not in godawful conditions for slave wages.

If you give illegals a "path to citizenship" then they aren't going to want to work at the stinky chicken farm and you'll have to import another 12 million illegal aliens to work for your slave wages.
