SUPPORT NY FARMS

Help Protect New York Farms and Allow Farmworkers to Work!

Maintain the 60-hour work week!

We are asking our Growers, Members and Customers to send an email to

e-lobby the Governor about the 60 Hr. overtime threshold that will be decided soon. It is very important that the Governor hears from the Ag community. The Governors office does count the letters that come in and it does make a difference.

Why does this matter? (Courtesy of grownyfarms.com)

Here are the facts: 

  • Farm workers want to work as much as possible during seasonal planting and harvest times to earn as much as they can to support their families. A 40-hour work week will force farmers to cut workers’ time to control rising costs. This will undoubtedly affect the production of local fruit, vegetables, and dairy products as we will increasingly rely on food produced more cheaply in other states and countries. 

  • A lower overtime threshold will drive out the workforce that keeps New York State farms running. Farmworkers will look for and seize on opportunities in other states where they are able to earn more income for their families. 

  • New York prides itself on the variety of fruits, vegetables, and dairy products — all sourced locally. This local food supported critical programs that helped New Yorkers in need during the pandemic. This will be a distant memory without the help of a workforce that farmers can afford to hire.

  • Local communities, supported by farm businesses, will suffer due to the economic decline from farms going out of business, reducing farmworkers’ take-home pay and thus their ability to spend money locally. Farm jobs will be eliminated due to crops requiring fewer workers. 

  • Your email will go to:

  • Governor Kathy Hochul

  • Lt. Governor Brian Benjamin

  • Senator Neil Breslin

  • Assemblyman Phil Steck
