You'd be pissed off because you didn't understand the importance of immigration or because you would feel duped that things were going to get better? (Which thread are we in, lol...)

Agriculture's one of the worst businesses for slavery. Spain, Italy - to a lesser extent Britain - have terrible stories of supply chain abuse, but we're addicted to cheap food. At least in the EU it's at least-worst levels. Goodness knows how post Brexit trading with less rigourous nations will effect our dependence on slavery for our cheap flowers, fruit and veg.
Agriculture in Italy and Spain is heavily sponsored by the dear EU and it developed in a certain way because they're never held responsible for anything, never checked if they respect workers' rights, never penalised - no subsidies retracted no nothing...food must be cheap at all costs, right. Less rigorous nations......I'm sure you've already dealt with them.
