MIGRANT FARM LABOR IN NEW YORK STATE.
New York State Interdepartmental Committee on Farm and Food Processing Labor, Albany.
SEVEN NEW YORK STATE DEPARTMENTS WORK TOGETHER TO SEE THAT THE MIGRANT IS TREATED FAIRLY AND HUMANELY IN THE AREAS OF HEALTH, HOUSING, CHILD CARE, EDUCATION, LABOR CONDITIONS, SAFETY, AND EMPLOYER-EMPLOYEE RELATIONS. AN INTERDEPARTMENTAL COMMITTEE GUIDES THE EFFORTS OF THE DEPARTMENTS. THE AGENCIES WORK WITH A BODY OF STATE LAW WHICH IS UPDATED AND IMPROVED FROM YEAR TO YEAR. SUPPLEMENTING THESE SERVICES IS THE WORK OF THE GOVERNOR'S ADVISORY COUNCIL, REPRESENTING GROWERS, RELIGIOUS GROUPS, CIVIC GROUPS, AND PRIVATE GROUPS. THESE GROUPS DRAW ON THE STATE GOVERNMENT FOR HELP AND, IN TURN, ASSIST THE STATE DEPARTMENT IN ATTUNING THEIR EFFORTS TO LOCAL CONDITIONS. SUCCESSFUL PROGRAMS ARE DESCRIBED. CHILD CARE CENTERS ARE LARGELY SUPPORTED BY THE STATE. CHILDREN OF MIGRANT WORKERS ATTEND SPECIAL SUMMER SCHOOLS. PERMITS TO OPERATE CAMPS ARE REQUIRED. SPECIALLY TRAINED HEALTH EDUCATORS WORK IN THE CAMPS. GROWERS, CONTRACTORS, AND TRANSPORTERS REGISTER WITH THE STATE WHEN FIVE OR MORE WORKERS ARE INVOLVED. INDIVIDUAL WORK RECORDS ARE KEPT BY THE EMPLOYERS AND ARE AVAILABLE FOR INSPECTION. MIGRANT WORKERS ARE FURNISHED PAY STATEMENTS. CHILD LABOR LAWS ARE ENFORCED. WELFARE ASSISTANCE COVERS FOOD, CLOTHING, HOUSEHOLD INCIDENTALS, AND MEDICAL CARE. MEDICAL CARE INCLUDED MEDICAL AND SURGICAL TREATMENT, DENTAL AND NURSING CARE, AND DRUGS.
