Thank You for Fighting for Farmworkers
For far too long, farmworkers have suffered under Jim Crow policies that excluded them from basic labor rights, including overtime pay. Currently, farm laborers must work 60 hours a week before they qualify for overtime pay. In a major victory, Governor Hochul has approved a plan to gradually lower the overtime threshold for farmworkers to 40 hours per week.
But mounting pushback to this decision threatens to undo this important progress.
Tell Governor Hochul and the State Department of Labor to hold strong in supporting justice for farmworkers.
