> To be fair these people are migrants, come over live on the cheap and work hard for a few months and go home with what after exchange rates is a decent wad.

And to be fairer, it is not about the rather pitiful wages. It is about the experience of a paid working holiday (picking fruit can actually be good fun, judging by my flatmate's experience when I was a student), and about learning / practising a new language.

This is why you will find Brits picking grapes in France, and Germans in Spain, for example.
