Temporary Agricultural Guestworkers: Eliminating Federal Legal Aid and Travel Reimbursements While Lowering Contracted Hour Guarantees

Argument in favor

Will help farmers by streamlining access to a reliable workforce, reducing red tape, and protecting growers from lawsuits. Enacts a market-based approach to meet demand and supply.

Argument opposed

Deprives current farmworkers who lack authorized immigration status the opportunity to earn citizenship while proposing a new program that would lead to lower wages and more exploitative conditions for farmworkers.
