About the Event

This conference examines labor-related issues in California and US agriculture. Labor-intensive fruit and vegetable crops are almost 85 percent of California and 40 percent of US crop sales, farm worker employment has been increasing, and the state’s mostly unauthorized farm workers are aging and settling in one place with families that include US-born children.

Three timely issues will be discussed. First, how do other countries obtain foreign workers to fill farm jobs? Second, how is California’s farm workforce changing as unauthorized migration slows and H-2A guest worker employment increases? Third, what are the effects of changing migration policies on agriculture and farm workers, and how do disputes between the federal and state government affect agriculture?

Agenda can be found here.
