"Apple growers say they could have had one of their best years ever if
a shortage of workers hadn’t forced them to leave some fruit on trees. Growers in Washington state, which produces about half of the
nation’s apples, say the labor shortage was made worse by a late start
to their harvest. The growing season got off to a slow start because of a
cold, wet spring, and some migrant workers didn’t stick around to wait
for it. But farmers say an immigration crackdown by the federal government and
states such as Arizona and Alabama scared off many more workers. They
have tried to replace them with domestic workers with little success and
inmates at a much greater cost." - Associated Press, Nov. 9, 2011.
