International farm worker and employer talk about how much they mean to each other


Ah, on a personal level, um – I mean, I’m a person – I’m a people person. So, uh, it’s, uh, it’s – it’s hard to be a manager of people when you actually like people Josh come like – he don’t come like a boss, he come like a brother, with us. Right? Because even when Josh come to Jamaica, he don’t go to a hotel, he come to our house. We don’t have a vehicle, he take cab with us. Who have vehicle, he drive around with us, we just go, we do anything we want to go, go to the bush, we go anything. Josh – we just respect Josh. So, these – these guys, you know, we’ve been working together for 14 years and now I’ve traveled down there and this year, hopefully I go, will be year number five. So, like, every time I go to their – I go to everyone’s house, you know, I know their neighbors, I know their brothers, I know their cousins, I know their – you know, so – I’m invested quite heavily in their personal lives, and, so they mean a lot to me. Well, one of the best things for me, like, every year I come here, I learn something more. Right? And, it – coming here on the farm, I like to do a lot of stuff that I only dream of. Since I come here, I learn a lot. And, I hope that I mean a lot to them. I mean, they often call me the feeding tree, but, because you know, I dangle the money I suppose, anyway. I’m like, no, you’re the feeding tree, actually. But, anyway, we argue about who – who is benefiting the most out of the relationship, often. And, so, yeah, they mean a lot to me personally, for sure. Because we’re friends – I mean, they’re – they’re family. We never stop talking about Josh.
