If cotton picking paid $250per hour the majority of us wouldn't be able to sign up for the job because the lines would be too long with others of all races looking for work. Unemployment isn't fun.

I'd do it, I got kids to feed, a mortgage to pay and school debt.

I'd do it. Ain't got to explain to nobody why.
And who asked this question? A hiring manager?
 Ain't nobody paying nobody to pick cotton for $250/hr.

 Yes i would and not even blink. that is employment. I''d be able to buy 2 homes in my neighbourhood one one years salary. I wont even tell y'all how many hours would equal my pay cheque. Thats 27, 500 JMD an hour (2 months light bill in an hour, 5 1/2 bags of dog food, ! Massi i'd be uncle Scrooge rich out here. $40, 000 USD a month could buy a tiny starter home (with a small mortgage). I could get a camry for that or an SUV. The top lawyers in Jamaica charged $500-$750 USD an hour during a big commissioner of inquiry. 

Bumbohole!!!! i would be at each investment house with my USD first thing after payday

Pass my wide brimmed hat, and sunscreen and loose linen clothes.

We grew sugar cane while y'all mainly grew cotton. There is no shame in cutting sugar cane in Jamaica. NO one looks on it like, damn you doing that slavery work in modern times as if we haven't progressed. Nope not at all.

I respect your stance but cotton picking as fair work isn't disgraceful


exactly!!!!!!!!! I can proudly say my ancestors never picked cotton lolololol . I live in the tropics i know the sun and the heat and the bugs, snakes meh. Once a dont see a flying cockroach I'm good.

Backbreaking work with that $250 i'll have the yoga/pilates lady from my gym at my house every night and the stretch girl. Im good. 

all these variables as to benefits etc car back charging phones etc (i actually hate visible and ringing phones in the work places- i know some businesses which do not allow that) Anyone who calls me- im at work getting paid call me back at 4/5pm. I prefer to assume benefits are good, bathroom facilities and all modern workplace practices are standard here. 

If mcdonald was paying me that money no happy meal could beat my face. 

I dont like the idea of shaming people for legal work. That shoe shining thread and the noses turned up attitude was so strange to me. Hell ill work at the golden arches for minimum wage. Minimum wage here is $20- $25 USD a day. For a maid's work that is clean wash sometimes cook. Those women come from families who have been maids since slavery days. And I must shame them for that? No eff that shame the ppl who enslaved us.

If the pay for cotton picking ever was that high, our economy must truly be f*cked.
The dollar must not have any value at all.
