Migrant and Seasonal Farm Workers
Many migrant farm workers travel to Minnesota each year to help with the cultivating and harvesting of several crops in specific regions of the state. Other workers come in search of longer-term, higher-wage jobs in non-agricultural industries. Whether the job is on or off the farm, through our Migrant and Seasonal Farmworker Program we help farm workers and the employers who hire them.
In specially designated WorkForce Centers in key regions of the state, our Migrant Labor Representatives focus on helping farm workers find jobs and providing referrals to other community services. Because the vast majority of migrant workers farm workers are Hispanic, all of our labor reps are proficient in English and Spanish.
