NAWS 2018

The National Agricultural Workers Survey (NAWS) was begun in 1989 to help DOL determine the supply of labor available to US crop agriculture so that, in conjunction with USDA estimates of the demand for crop workers, the proper number of free-agent RAW workers could have been legalized or admitted to prevent farm labor shortages. This workshop will review almost 30 years of NAWS data.
