Migrant and Seasonal Farm Workers

The American Job Center (AJC) provides the same range of services to Migrant and Seasonal Farm Workers (MSFWs) as are provided to non-MSFW job seekers. The AJC delivers all workforce development related services, benefits and protections, career guidance/counseling, testing, job development, job training, and referral services to MSFWs on an equitable and non-discriminatory basis.  The goal is to assist workers and their families with attaining greater economic stability.

  • earned at least half of his or her earned income from farm work
  • not employed in farm work year-round by the same employer
 
MIGRANT FARMWORKER
A migrant farmworker is a seasonal farmworker who has to travel to do the farm work and is unable to return to his or her permanent residence within the same day.
