Farm Labor Developments. Employment and Wage Supplement.
Bureau of Employment Security (DOL), Washington, DC.
Estimated employment, wage rates, and origin of seasonal hired agricultural workers in selected activities are presented in tabular form. Employment information was obtained by the Bureau of Employment Security from 269 agricultural reporting areas throughout the country. Agricultural workers were defined as those engaged in the production of agricultural crops or livestock and in closely related on-farm activities such as post-harvest storage, sorting, and packing which do not materially change the product from its original form. Seasonal hired workers were defined as those who were hired or assigned to work on any one farm or establishment for less than a continuous 150-day period in the course of a year. In-season farm labor cash-wage rates were tabulated by agricultural reporting area according to crop and activity as either hourly wage rate or piece work rate. (DM)
