The American Farm Bureau Federation (AFBF), as a member of the Agriculture Workforce Coalition, will be asking Congress to draft legislation that ensures America’s farms, ranches, and other agricultural operations have access to a stable and skilled work force, according to AFBF President Bob Stallman.

The coalition has drafted a framework proposal that includes both an earned adjustment in status for current experienced farm workers and a program to ensure that farmers, ranchers, and growers continue to have access to a work force as current agricultural employees move on to other jobs, according to AFBF Labor Specialist Kristi Boswell.

“The framework recognizes the unworkable nature of existing agricultural labor programs and previous proposals, such as AgJOBS,” Boswell said. “A key to the coalition’s proposed framework will be ensuring that the needs of all of agriculture -- both those employers with seasonal labor needs and those who provide year-round employment opportunities -- are met.”

According to Stallman, American agriculture as we know it would not be possible without the contributions of more than 1.5 million hired workers each year. Beyond the farm gate, each of these workers supports two to three full-time jobs in the food processing, transportation, farm equipment, marketing, retail, and other sectors.

Additional information on the Agriculture Workforce Coalition and the coalition’s framework proposal can be found on its website www.agworkforcecoalition.org.
