Farm workers, cannery workers and tree planters, some of the hardest-working people in Oregon, are vital to our economy. Yet few Oregonians know much about their contributions, their experiences or the people themselves. Since this work force is increasingly Spanish-speaking, the gap in understanding is growing.
This newest chapter of OPB's Oregon Story introduces you to the diverse history of agricultural work here, in our state.
