This is just an “interesting choice of photo” moment — but today I saw an article called “Want a Job? Agriculture Industry Teeming With Them“. What interests me is not so much the content of the article as the photo that USA Today chose to go along with it:
My original thought was “veal calves” — although the original photo source says “Holstein dairy calves” on a Wisconsin farm, and these do appear to be dairy calves. There are theoretically good reasons to keep dairy calves this way; however, for a huge variety of reasons, this is not a location in which I’d personally be comfortable working. Maybe that’s why there’s a shortage of workers?
(The shortage might also have something to do with the low pay, dangerous and unpleasant working conditions, and other problems, but those aren’t in the photo.)
