The COVID-19 pandemic has shed a light on the need to advocate for farm worker protections and labor rights. Thanks to their professional skills, we have food on our table. Farm workers are not sheltering in place as they were designated on 3/19/2020 as “essential workers" for a “critical infrastructure sector” by the federal government during the COVID-19 crisis. Ironically, the federal government continues to exclude farm workers from labor laws that protect other workers, overtime, sick leave, etc.
Help us continue to advocate for farm workers to be protected by policies being developed to address COVID-19 and to help get farm workers the critical information and resources they need to remain safe and healthy.
