Too Close to Slavery: Essential Labor in California Agriculture

CRISJ will host a forum addressing the crisis in the fields. The California economy has been enriched by farm workers, who have made agribusiness the most powerful and richest industry in the nation and world. However, during the pandemic, farm-working families struggle with fewer earnings than their typical poverty wages and they are not getting the governmental attention/protection they need to stay healthy.
