FB News: The Los Angeles Times recently ran “America has a farm labor shortage. We need a better guest worker program,” an op-ed by AFBF President Zippy Duvall. “America agriculture relies on hundreds of skilled workers to plant the fields, tend the crops, harvest the produce and pack it for markets both here and abroad. We don’t have enough of these workers,” Duvall wrote. He also pointed out that the current H-2A program, which is supposed to assist farmers and ranchers, “too often falls short in meeting growers’ or workers’ needs.”
