Many Georgia farmers continue to suffer the consequences of HB87 which is scaring away their workforce and costing them lots of money. They are asking the federal government to help, talking to their Congressional representatives. This is the way to go as Congress needs to act, but if more pressure is not put on representatives, they will continue to do nothing.
One Farmer in Ocilla lost about $200,000 in blackberries crop because they could not find workers to pick them.
Other farmers report similar problems with produce rotting in the fields.
Still the Republican representatives are not convinced. Maybe they will if they are not re-elected.
