Decision on Arizona Immigration Law Could Impact Produce Industry
United Fresh says the Supreme Court’s ruling on Arizona’s immigration law will likely lead to greater labor force instability for produce industry employers in the state of Arizona – but also other states with similar immigration laws. Due to the migratory nature of labor in the produce industry – United Fresh says this instability could impact farm employers across the country. The group says the Court’s decision underscores the immediate need for a comprehensive and practical guest worker program for agriculture to enable produce industry employers to remain viable and competitive. United Fresh intends to continue working on this industry priority with Congress.
