Morgan Spurlock as migrant farm worker

Morgan Spurlock took 15 minutes to fill a tub of oranges when he should've taken 4. He also learned the hard way that orange trees have thorns.

See CNN's Morgan Spurlock try his hand at a job as a migrant farm worker in Polk County, Florida - a role rarely filled by U.S. citizens - on this week's "Inside Man" Sunday at 10 p.m.

    Thank you Mr. Spurlock for not just sharing the story but for "getting into the shoes" of the immigrants. I am sure your experience was life changing and I also believe there are like myself, viewers who largely benefitted from this info. There is also another group of immigrants, who are rarely focused on and their flight unknown...the skilled immigrants. I would love to share bits and pieces of their stories with you about their world but I do not know how. Inside Man is really insightful, thanks for sharing the stories and touching lives

    Thank you for you story on the immigrant workers. Hopefully more people will understand that we are not 'ilegals' who are taking advantage of the system, but people with families, dreams, and hopes. We want to make a better life for ourselves and our sons and daughters. We pay taxes, we contribute, and all we want is the opportunity to live, work and be part of this country.

    Thank you for this insight. It brings to life, at least for those that watched the show, the hardship of "the modern slave". I'm glad you didn't get sprayed with pesticides while picking oranges. I thank you!
