Western Growers is once again participating in the annual California Agricultural Wage and Benefit Survey conducted by Farm Employers Labor Service (FELS®). Not to be confused with the Western Growers Professional Compensation & HR Practices Surveys, the FELS Wage & Benefit survey provides a market reference for growers making wage and benefit decisions for 14 on-jobs including: supervisors and foremen; mechanics; equipment operators and tractor drivers; irrigators; and general laborers. This survey is used to develop a reference on California market conditions.
Western Growers encourages regular members with on-farm employees and farm labor contractors in California to participate since the more data that is included, the more reliable the survey results.
Alternatively, members can download and submit a paper copy of the survey. Please email, fax or mail the completed form to Western Growers as specified in the survey directions. The survey is open now through March 1, 2015. A free copy of the survey results will be available to all members starting June 1, 2015.
