>>In WA state orchards, it is a mix of illegal and H2B visa labor.

I have been told, but haven't researched, that taxpayers fund the cost of getting Jamaican fruit pickers to Brewster, WA.

OK. So that explains it.

I was in Brewster in September on a project, and there were 'furriners' that didn't fit into the local Mexican population. I only caught a snippet of conversation, and could've sworn that they were Jamaican or from somewhere in the Caribbean, but then talked myself out of that observation. ("Musta been hearing things")

One thing I noticed though, is that the Mexican restaurant workers were really surly when folks at that table wanted service.
