I know the answer you're looking for is more immigration to fill the need, but the real answer is having more people that have to work for their food.

Recon that is the reason Machinery parts and everything else is going up so fast. Anybody bought any machinery parts recently. THere better not be much wrong or there will be a debate whether it is worth fixing or not.

That doesn't sound reasonable when so many have gone to all the trouble to fashion the gov'ts safety net into a hammock.

Another "Solution looking for a problem" except there Ain't no labor shortage.
The real data says;
According to Bureau of Labor, in May 2018, there were 6.1 million unemployed (legally here) adults in the USA and another (legally here) 4.9 million working part time that are looking for full time jobs. That's one worker available for every 12 hogs in the whole US.

Immigration, in the last 30 years or so, has never been about workers...it's been about increasing a specific voting demographic. Period.

I see plenty of able bodies sitting on the porches in the projects. You know the same one's that despise illegals but vote left with them.
Kill em all and let allah sort them out.

Not enough hog farms and farms near the projects. How do you come up with a solution to move the project people to the farms or the farms to the project.

Illegals have no problems finding their way. When people get hungry they'll find a way to get to work.

How about maybe they get a job, and buy a car.

I have to disagree. Every small town I have been to has at least one government assisted living complex. The town I live in has 4 and the population here is around 900. Granted not all of these people can work but most of them are perfectly able. One year the government built 12 houses for “poor” people that owned their own land but had no house or if the house was run down it would be removed. I guess this stuff is acceptable in todays world.

If I was down on my luck and the only available job was feeding hogs, well I guess I’d walk to work and feed hogs every day.

My ancestors traveled on foot from Virginia to Central Tennessee in the early 1800's, to find a way.
