Western Growers Vice President and General Counsel Jason Resnick will speak at this important workshop to discuss the future of immigration and ag labor. America's broken immigration system provides almost no usable avenues for less skilled foreigners to enter the country and work legally, and the programs that exist are cumbersome and unpredictable.
After the FDA released of the Produce and Preventive Controls Rule on Jan. 4 several opportunities to learn about them have been offered. Western Growers invites you to hear about our preliminary analysis of the Preventive Controls Rule. This webinar is meant to provide an overview of this rule, highlight the key differences with current GMPs as well as existing commodity specific guidelines, discuss items on which FDA is requesting comments; and, gather questions.
Western Growers is once again participating in the annual California Wage and Benefit Survey conducted by Farm Employers Labor Service (FELS®). The survey provides a market reference for growers making wage and benefit decisions for 15 on-the-farm jobs including: supervisors and foremen; mechanics; equipment operators and tractor drivers; irrigators and general laborers. We encourage all Western Growers Regular Members to participate since the more data that is included, the more reliable the survey results.
