I can see why anyone would be opposed to doing it though...

But as long as I'm getting that wage, benefits and rights I'll be there by CC

that is all i am saying...and when ur out there picking that cotton i do hope u r thinking of how our ancestors did this for so many years and not getting paid at all or maybe minute pay...do wonder how long some of ya'll would actually last picking cotton in that hot ass weather...bending over, plant by plant, back aching, etc...








Just got a chance to read this...

Made me spit out my mouth full of water

Maybe

I see your point.

To me it's too stereotypical, even on Halloween.

The wage will never be enough for me to go there.

My freedom has already been paid for.

$250/hr is not enough for that particular job.


Thank you, but NO, I would not pick cotton for $250/hr.

Most of us in this thread work for the "white man" it's new age slavery. So yes, for almost a half of million dollars a year(with those tax breaks that the wealthy get), I'd pick cotton in the hot ass sun. I know people that work just as hard and only make 10-12/hr. I might even shuck and jive, sh*t ninjas out here coonin for free. #judgeme but I be giving back to the community.

I'd do it as a part-time gig. I feel like id have a piece of my pride still intact if I only picked it part time.
