Abstract: This study was conducted to analyze Michigan's migrant farm labor situation. Data were collected from growers and migrants. Growers reported wages, housing, and perquisites as tools they use to attract migrants. Migrants reported housing, wages, grower honesty, and respectful treatment of workers to be key factors in choosing a workplace.
