The Politics of Farm Labor

Jan 15, 12:00 PM

Mike's back with his second food politics episode. This time, he reads his post on the politics of farm labor , getting into who works on America's farms (mostly immigrants), how willing Americans are to do farm labor (not very, for understandable reasons), why nearly half of all farm labor is done by undocumented immigrants, abuses of immigrant laborers, and the connection between immigrant labor and food prices.
