US agricultural labor reform ‘hindered by regional differences’

Bob Redding, who works for the Redding Firm and serves as a lobbyist for agricultural groups in Washington, D.C., believes compromise is the only way true reform will happen with a contentious issue such as ag labor legislation reform. The issue of will remain unresolved as long as southeastern growers and western growers don’t come to a compromise, he thinks.

Citrusindustry.net quoted Redding as saying: “If we want reform, we’re going to have to reach out. Growers to growers is really a good place to start. We continue to have the West versus the Southeast. Until we figure that out, it’s going to be difficult to pass something.”

Redding said regional differences top the list of issues that prevent major ag labor reform. “The Southeast and the West will probably have to come together, particularly after this election cycle to see any movement,” he added.
