Fair Farmworker Conditions with Rural Migrant Ministry

In the Farmworkers Fair Practice law finally passed last year, farmworkers don’t receive 1.5 wages for overtime until after 60 hours. Last week the Cuomo administration voted to not take action to reduce the 60 hour threshold in a 2 to 1 vote, with the head of the Buffalo Urban League casting the deciding vote. We discuss the overtime issue along with how COVID-19 has impacted farmworkers with Richard Witt of Rural and Migrant Ministry. With Mark Dunlea for Hudson Mohawk Radio Network
