Abstract:
The federal H-2A program enables North Carolina farmers to bring in foreign laborers for seasonal work through the Farm Labor Organization Committee. But migrant workers, such as those working at the Jackson Farming Company in Autryville, face unsafe working and housing conditions, wage theft, discrimination, and sexual abuse. Workers filed a lawsuit against Jackson farm, an unusual step taken by workers in the program.
