Abstract

This paper examines three farm labor issues: How mechanization affects the demand for farm labor; the probable effects of immigration reform on the supply of farm workers; and the effects of 10 years of collective bargaining on the farm labor market. The evidence suggests that mechanization, immigration reform, and collective bargaining have had or will have fewer effects on the farm labor market than is often assumed. However, the farm labor market is vulnerable to future shocks if it remains isolated from nonfarm labor markets.
