Farm Labor Shortages and Immigration Policy: CRS Report for Congress

Author: Levine, Linda
Date Published: 1999

This 1999 article discusses the connection between migrant worker shortages and immigration policy. It also incorporates citizenship, unemployment, seasonality and wages within its context. The report concludes that there is not a shortage of available farmworkers in light of the seasonality of production. This does not imply however, that there are not shortages outside of peak seasons of production.
