How did these businesses manage before the influx of cheap Eastern European labour?

Prevalence of supermarkets insisting on rock bottom prices to attract (food wasting) consumers was less then, so margins enabled businesses to operate differently. My mum and uncle did fruit picking in the 70s. But profit margins are so small now due to supermarkets it just isn’t the same.

Something for nothing culture in Britain means people just aren’t prepared to pay a sustainable cost for food and refuse to accept what is needed to produce it.

You can either have European pickers, bacteria ridden chicken and industrial inhuman cow factories and pay a supermarket price, or you can have British pickers and have healthy animinals who have access to light and fresh air with space to turn around - but you can’t have both, which is what the parasitic British consumer doesn’t understand.

Farms back then didn't produce three crops per year under plastic, neither.

Yes, the supermarket have squeezed the producer's margin to maximise their profits and to claim the moral high ground of being the consumer's champion.
