Employment Issues in Agriculture

Workshop | March 14 | 1-5 p.m. |  2521 Channing Way (Inst. for Res. on Labor & Employment)

 Institute of Research on Labor & Employment

The aim of this workshop is to explore employment issues in Californian agriculture. This workshop aims at approaching the broad theme of employment issues in Californian agriculture from different perspectives, by focusing on the following: i) low wage jobs in agriculture; ii) discrimination at work; ii) immigration reform; and iii) attempts to make agriculture more sustainable. These approaches have been chosen in order to help provide a full picture of the issues experienced by both employers and employees. The anticipated outcome of the workshop is to facilitate knowledge exchange between academic researchers and staff members from (non)-governmental organisations.
