A Nasty Political Post

The impact of the Farm Wage Board’s decision cannot be understated. — Rep. Langworthy, facebook Feb. 23, 2023

Nicholas would tell us what to think.

The issue is fair wages for farm workers, but one might not know that after reading Rep. Langworthy’s post. This post is filled with fighting words, clearly intended to arouse passions irresponsibly. It shows a callous disregard for human rights and no respect for “justice for all.”

  • Life support
  • Asinine
  • Final straw
  • New York City interests
  • Know nothing
  • Unconscionable
  • Decimate

Nick behaves as “Chicken Little,” sounding a foolish alarm. He would have us believes the sky is falling after an acorn hits his head.

    Isn’t Nick appealing to a constituency who for the most part care not one whit about farm workers, who are, after all, often migrant workers and people of color?

    Yes Annie, I think so.

    Nick is appointed to the Subcommittee on Commodity Markets, Digital Assets, and Rural Development and the Subcommittee on Nutrition, Foreign Agriculture, and Horticulture. He has no relevant experience or education. He has a BA in Political Science; his experience is in partisan politics.

    No doubt that small farms are hurting. The solution, however, is not to do away with labor rights. Perhaps full time workers on small farm should be given a supplemental income from NY state. Limiting OT is not the answer

    Thanks for your comment, Joseph. Small farms have been disappearing for decades; in my opinion, regulation isn’t the cause of it. I prefer that small farm interests, which have political clout, not force higher costs on us all. I don’t think they should be subsidized.

    Rep. Langworthy, with no education or experience in agriculture, appointed to two agricultural subcommittees, can now pose as an expert.
