Farm Labor Organizer Says Immigration Reform Will Mean More Competition for Jobs


On channel 13abc’s Sunday morning public affairs show; Conklin & Company, Baldemar Velasquez, President of the Farm Labor Organizing Committee stated that immigration reform would lead to more completion for jobs in the labor market as newly legalized agricultural workers seek out better year-round jobs.  This would leave a “void” of agricultural workers that would require a guest worker program to fill.

Mr. Velasquez said “So that people who get legalized in agriculture are going to find their ways in to more permanent employment in order to support their families 12 months of the year”

The full interview with Mr. Velasquez can be seen on the 13abc web site: http://www.13abc.com/story/16366357/conklin-and-company
