Who Are Migrant Workers?

  • Who Are Migrant Workers?

    Migrant workers seek temporary or seasonal work in agriculture, fishing or related industries, including food processing. They follow the growing seasons across the country and are largely responsible for the cultivation and harvest of fruits, vegetables and many other food products. Many migrant workers have an average income below the national poverty line.

    Here in Utah, the Migrant Education program currently serves approximately 4,000 qualified migrant students in Logan, Brigham City, Ogden, Clearfield, Salt Lake City, Sandy, Orem, Payson, Mt. Pleasant, Delta, Fillmore, Beryl, and Beaver.
