I don't think they have much choice any more. You might find one or to people that will do it and do a good job. No way could you find a crew here that would even show up.
I detassled one year . Absolutely hated it. The pay was half of what I normally got. Every time you started to work you had to take a break. When you got to the end you had to wait for every one before we started back. Usually at the first break we had kids trying to talk the leaders in to taking us all home Often they just left the kids on the bus. They still had to pay them.
We were supposed to be ready at 5 and always had to wait for several. The worst part was the only reason I took the job was so they would hire my cousin. She showed up for 3 days. She was late all 3 days. The first day she was late because she was getting all gussied up! LOL
If I need that job done I would do anything I could not to hire a bunch of kids!
