Like all other workers, the hardworking farm laborers who pick our apples, milk our cows, and grow our vegetables deserve a fair wage for their work. They are the backbone of our agricultural economy and should be treated with dignity, respect, and equality under the law. Farmworkers in New York State are already excluded from basic labor protections like overtime pay, collective bargaining protections, and a day of rest. Now Governor Cuomo is is considering excluding them from the state minimum wage.
