Farm Labor Trends And Management In Washington State
The Washington State farm labor market is a pivotal point in the western migrant stream. Farm employers argue that the seasonal labor market has tightened as a result of changes in immigration policy and economic conditions, even as they increase acreage of labor-intensive crops and the demand for labor. Yet, one could argue that a sufficient labor supply is available if workers are offered competitive wages and sufficient hours. To address some of these questions and issues, this study explores whether employer-specific factors (commodity, region, size, and management practices) influence worker turnover and the ability of employers to attract return workers.
