Hearing and listening: Farm labor sessions must produce real reform this time

This time it will be different, as Labor Chair Jessica Ramos is determined to pass the Farmworkers Fair Labor Practices Act, equalizing the treatment of farm workers and ending an injustice that goes back 80 years.

Cuomo’s desk.
