Labor Issues in Agriculture

The Nampa Chamber of Commerce invites you to the Seventh Annual AG Forum on Tuesday, February 4, 2020, from 11:00 am-1:15 pm at the Ford Idaho Center. The AG Forum connects the agricultural industry and local businesses while raising awareness that agriculture and food processing are still the backbone of Southern Idaho's Economy.

How do guest worker programs like the H2A program for temporary agriculture workers help local producers? Join us to hear more about this complex issue and its effect on the local business community.
