What is considered migrant or seasonal farm work?
- Migrant Work – Migrant farm workers migrate from their hometowns to other states or towns within the state for farm-work-related employment. Examples of farm work include soil preparation, planting, harvesting fruit and vegetables, and plowing. Some ranch work, such as feeding livestock and shearing sheep, and some fishing activity may also be used for eligibility purposes.
- Seasonal Farm Work – Seasonal farm workers are families who perform the same type of work as described under migrant work but on a temporary basis.
