Our Neighbors in Labor Camps – Part 1

Jason Yarashes, Lead Attorney & Program Coordinator, Virginia Justice Project for Farm and Immigrant Workers, Legal Aid Justice Center

Agriculture is Virginia’s largest private industry.  We all depend on it, but what do we know about the essential workers who maintain our food supply?

On this episode, we learn about our state’s legally permitted labor camps, where farm workers do the backbreaking work required to put food on our tables.  April and Christa sit down with Jason Yarashes with the Legal Aid Justice Center to shed some light on the well hidden systems of labor that fuel this industry.

Part 2 of our conversation will be posted after it airs on WRIR on July 21st.
