Aug 25, 2018 12:27 am
The Mid-Hudson News Network reports that Rep. John Faso (R-Kinderhook) was at the Dutchess County Fairgrounds this week touting legislation he is co-sponsoring to create an agricultural worker immigrant work visa program. “This is critical for our agriculture industry. It is also critical for us in the Hudson Valley, because we are not going to have the workers to harvest our crops and milk our cows unless we do something about the migrant labor issue," Faso said Aug. 23. Migrant workers classified as H-2C under the proposed Agricultural Guest Worker Act could work in the United States for a maximum of 36 months. Read the full story in the Mid-Hudson News.
