A new generation of parents no longer felt it important to teach their kids the work ethic through hard, manual work.

Or maybe they felt that having their kids spending their summers slaving in fields for piss poor wages wasn't a good thing anymore. Don't know about you, but if I can find a way for my kids to have a better summer job than that, I will. Hopefully it will be something that will be in the same field they eventually want to work in.

There are worse things than picking berries - I paid for my first year of university by picking pine cones for the MNR to eventually turn into tree seedlings for reforestation. Would I want my kids to do that? Heck no.

I'd rather just believe that it's done by little elves running around.

Working...
