    Yes, we have been shipping apples into Mexico for a long time. These tariffs, if Drumpf actually executes, will make USA apples more expensive in Mexico. So Mexican apple growers will have a competitive edge on pricing.

    We pay a minimum of 14-15 an hour for farm labor. For piece rate work, fast guys can make 25+ an hour. I dont think farm labor in Mexico pays that well. So they come up in droves to work the labor jobs nobody else seems to want. And they send mad cash back to Mexico every week.
