I am dealing with a lot of Washington growers that face a very different landscape than we have here in Idaho. They are cutting back on labor/workers, especially the H-2A because of lawsuits by farm labor unions, Columbia Legal and the state workforce agency who are not ag friendly. Growers are being accused of not enforcing social distancing because of bunk beds and housing capacity, van and bus capacity, etc. I am so thankful to be based out of Idaho because here in Canyon County it feels like business as usual for the most part.
