The 2014 FELS California Wage and Benefit Survey results are now available. The survey was conducted by the Farm Employers Labor Service (FELSSM), Western Growers and several other ag organizations. It provides a reference for estimating pay rates, benefits and understanding compensation structures used by California agricultural firms. Fourteen on-the-farm jobs titles from supervisor to general laborer are included.
The FELS California Wage and Benefit Survey should not be confused with the Western Growers' Professional Compensation and HR Practices Survey, which is a much more comprehensive survey, targeting professional level jobs.
Unfortunately, few Western Growers’ members participated in this year’s survey. Thank you very much to those members who took the time to submit survey responses.
