As you may have read in the press, farm labor representatives and the agricultural industry are in the final hours of negotiating a deal over a new program to bring foreign agricultural workers into the United States, as part of a comprehensive immigration bill. One of the remaining issues that must be resolved is setting the pay levels for those workers.

This is a link to a 2-question survey on farm wages for three categories of workers: packers/graders; ag equipment operators; and dairy & livestock. We are asking that you please take a few minutes to complete the survey by 4:00 PDT today. Your responses will help ensure that our industry has an accurate picture of current wages paid for these jobs, which will help inform our negotiations.

Thank you for your immediate attention to this survey.
