Immigration reform: What does it mean for Florida agriculture?
The immigration debate is heating up. Will the number of allowed temporary nonimmigrant-born farm workers increase or decrease? Will an immigration deal be announced next week or months from now? How will reform impact agriculture and the market for hired farm labor?
Join this session to learn the answers to these questions and more, including the latest about immigration reform and what it means for agriculture in Florida. Mike Carlton, director of the Labor Relations Division with the Florida Fruit and Vegetable Association, will share his experiences working on this topic as he represents his association on labor related legislative efforts at the federal level.
