The Changing Agriculture Workforce:
Challenges and Opportunities for the Worker, the Employer
and the Community
January 16, 2014
The increasing global demand for food has implications for immigration policy, regulatory oversight, and production methods. Often overlooked is the health and well-being of agriculture workers including safety, access to health care, and successful integration into local communities. A comprehensive understanding of what it takes to assure the safety, health and welfare of the worker, reliable and productive employees, and vibrant rural communities will benefit all stakeholders.
Ensuring healthy and productive workers requires a broad perspective, inquisitive minds, and a commitment to collaborate. Please join us on Thursday, January 16, 2014 at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum for a working forum on the challenges and opportunities that the changing agriculture workforce brings for workers, employers and the community.
