Farm Labor

An adequate, legal and reliable supply of workers is one of the most pressing issues facing farmers today. Agriculture is unique because the work is seasonal at planting and harvest times and agricultural products are highly perishable. New York's farmers are working with state and federal lawmakers to devise solutions to this problem.
