Abstract

Farm laborers play a vital role in the agricultural sector. They are an extremely vulnerable group. Their vulnerability may sometimes be seen in sub-adequate housing in farm labor camps. The goal of our project was to develop recommendations for improving farm labor camp housing policy in Massachusetts. To accomplish our goal we studied relevant laws and policies in Massachusetts and other states and visited farm labor camps in Massachusetts. We proposed recommendations to the Massachusetts Department of Public Health.
