*More information is needed about the resources available to local agricultural workers
“Migrant and Seasonal Farm Workers are essential for a large part of Washington agricultural production …Legal and language barriers, lack of steady work, poor housing conditions for too many, low literacy, health care risks and the lack of payroll benefits in the industry all contribute to a need for MSFW organizations…For all service providers, an ongoing challenge is to adequately enumerate the service population of MSFWs.”
