Yesterday morning, Western Growers President & CEO Tom Nassif detailed the critical labor shortages facing American agriculture and laid out the case for agricultural immigration reform before the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Immigration and Citizenship.

In his testimony, Nassif stated that experienced workers are aging out of the agricultural workforce with few Americans lining up to take their place, despite wages well above state and federal minimums.

Enterprise Holdings, which offer extensive car rental and transportation services, donated $1,500 to the Western Growers Foundation yesterday to support its School Garden and Careers in Ag programs. Both programs are geared toward advancing knowledge of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) topics in areas related to farming and agriculture among students, from elementary school through college.
