Max Armstrong's Daily Updates

Farm Progress America, August 31, 2020

Max Armstrong shares an update on the H-2A in 2020

Max Armstrong takes a closer look at the H-2A program which allows a foreign national worker into the U.S. for temporary annual work. There was a concern earlier this year when the government announced it would suspend visa processing for Mexican workers. And the move brought concern for the food supply too. Max notes than more than 90% of H-2A workers come from Mexico.

Farm Progress America is a daily look at key issues in agriculture. It is produced and presented by Max Armstrong, veteran farm broadcaster and host of This Week in Agribusiness.
