You know how sometimes when the liberal media loses they try to create really silly scare tactics to drum up public outrage? Well, they did it again.
Last year British people voted to leave the European Union. The media called it Brexit. Since then the left has done everything they can to convince us that Brexit is the beginning of the apocalypse.
The Washington Post, specifically, has taken a front seat position in the race to inspire fear in the minds of their readers.
Today they are running an article with the following headline...
Brexit could leave fields of rotting crops in Britain if migrant workers stay away
Oh no, not rotting fruit! If only there was some way to pick that fruit with out hiring migrant workers! Gee whiz, I'm not an economics expert but it seems to me that the law of supply and demand could shed some light on what might happen if there are less low wage workers around?
Shocking news: the value of labor will go up and fruit pickers will get paid more to pick fruit! And the unemployment rate will drop [it's currently 5.4% in the UK]. And the best part? Low skilled workers will earn a higher wage.
But don't tell the Washington post. They want you to believe everyone in Great Britain is too incompetent to know how to pick fruit with out the help of foreigners. Because before the UK joined the EU, British people spent centuries wandering around wondering how to pick fruit before it rots. They were helpless! If you believe that, I have some magic beans for sale that you're gonna wanna make an offer on today!
Maybe the Washington Post is just trying to keep the unemployment rate in the UK from dropping? Who knows, but one thing is for sure: the only thing rotting today in the UK are the minds of liberal media consumers.
