past decade, farm laborers have gained significant legal protections, coming closer to those enjoyed

social rationale and concluding with suggestions for future policy in this area. It is one of a series
of studies by the Minnesota Agricultural Experiment Station that contributes to NC-117, the regional
research group that has dealt with the organization and control of the U.S. food system. The NC-117
