It is hard to find good help.
No matter the occupation. No matter the rate of pay. The majority of people do not want to work. They want a paycheck but they do not want to do the work required to get it.
In Vol Fan's case, the type of work is hard and dirty. But it is work and it does provide a paycheck. So last night as I was reading, I was amazed by the insight in a book that was first published in 1962.
I am reading 'Travels With Charley: In Search of America' by John Steinbeck. His trip had taken him into Maine just in time for the potato harvest. He was commenting on the groups that has crossed over from Canada to work the harvest.
"It occurs to me that, just as the Carthaginians hired mercenaries to do their fighting for them, we Americans bring in mercenaries to do our hard and humble work. I hope we may not be overwhelmed one day by peoples not too proud or too lazy or too soft to bend to the earth and pick up the things we eat."
And look where we are in 50 short years.
