Current Narrative:

Marketing the employment service complaint system to farmworkers and other farmworker advocacy groups

The Agricultural Recruitment System (ARS) is an alternative to the H-2A Temporary Agricultural Program offered to employers who have temporary agricultural or food processing jobs and need workers. The SMA promotes the ARS during employer forums to agricultural employers and employer organizations as a more cost-effective alternative to H-2A. Outreach workers provide information on this program during employer visits. ARS brochures are shared with employers during forums and visits.
