ANLA and SAF Urge Support of AgJOBS LegislationSource: Various

The U.S. Senate may consider, as early as the week of Oct. 29, critically important immigration reform legislation known as AgJOBS. The American Nursery & Landscape Association (ANLA) and the Society of American Florists (SAF) helped negotiate the bill, which would stabilize the chaotic and unstable labor situation in the agriculture sector, and have supported it since 2003. The fields of nursery, greenhouse and Christmas tree farms all stand to be impacted by the proposed legislation.

If enacted, AgJOBS would overhaul the existing H-2A temporary agricultural worker program to make it more reliable and affordable, providing a long-term solution to the labor crisis threatening the field. AgJOBS allows the most experienced and valued farm workers an opportunity to earn legal status if they meet strict conditions, including years of future agricultural work.
