New York State Senate: Support the Farmworkers Fair Labor Practices Act


Farmworkers in New York have about the same rights as they did in 1900. Supporting the Farmworkers Fair Labor Practices Act (FFLPA) will help local farmworkers get the same rights all the rest of us enjoy.

FFLPA would:

Establish an 8 hour workday

Allow farmworkers an optional day of rest per week

Prohibit child farmworkers from being paid below a minimum wage

Give farmworkers the right to bargain collectively

Ensure that housing facilities meet basic standards under the Sanitary Code

Provide worker's comp to employees injured on the job
