Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
And the comparison between small farmer and factory worker doesn't hold that much here, either ; many factory workers go back to the family farm after a few years....

And many don't. This when the comparison is between old school style factory labour and traditional farming.  Given the choice between WalMart type work, for WalMart type PPP adjusted wages, my guess is that the number who would freely choose farm labour over the WalMart option to be rather low.
