Abstract

Not available – first paragraph follows: Between 1950 and 1980, the average number of farmworkers employed in California agriculture increased 3 percent, from 218,000 to 224,000, while the average employment of farmers and family workers declined 52 percent, from 132,000 to 64,000. Statewide statistics are not always reliable indicators of what has happened to the farm labor market in specific commodities, and the apparent stability of average farmworker employment obscures the dramatic changes that have occurred in particular commodities.
