Got a soft touch?

Spain. Strawberries:

MADRID — Spanish strawberry growers were forced to travel to Morocco to find pickers to gather this year's harvest.

....Working in collaboration with the Moroccan employment agency, Spanish businesses are to recruit over 2,600 women to work in Spain during the strawberry season.

Strawberry farmers say they prefer women because they "are better organized and more reliable," and "because picking strawberries requires a degree of sensitivity".
