Farmers and ranchers need a legal, reliable workforce that supports their farms and treats workers respectfully. American agriculture faces a critical shortage of labor that harms annual harvests, animal agriculture production and processing facilities. This damages American competitiveness and overall food security. Both farmers and U.S. consumers have been haunted by labor shortages, which are driving up prices and threatening U.S. agriculture’s place in the global marketplace. Reforming the H-2A program would provide farmers and ranchers with a legal and reliable workforce while curbing rising food prices and maintaining our global competitiveness.
