Episode Notes

Workers Comp Matters host Alan Pierce interviews Farmworker Justice President Bruce Goldstein at the 2014 Workers’ Injury Law and Advocacy Group Conference. Goldstein describes the impact immigration policy has on farm workers’ ability to access workers’ compensation programs and other labor rights. He explains that 50-70% undocumented migrant or seasonal farmworkers are being exploited due to fear of deportation, minimal education, or lack of legal assistance. Farmworker Justice is a Washington D.C. based organization that focuses on immigration policy, labor rights, occupational safety, health, and access to justice for migrant farmworkers.
