Agricultural workers hard to find in Colorado
PUEBLO, Colo. (AP) — The president of the Colorado Farm Bureau says fruit growers and ranchers are having some crops go unpicked and animals untended because they can’t get a dependable supply of field workers.
Don Shawcroft said Wednesday the U.S. Senate needs to pass a comprehensive immigration reform bill, a measure that House Republicans have rejected.
