Photo 17Do you know the difference between a migrant and a seasonal farmworker?

The adjective “migrant” does not connote any particular ethnicity or citizenship or immigration status. Migrant farmworkers are workers who travel away from their homes overnight to work in agriculture (1). Migrant farmworkers move into temporary housing while they are in North Carolina.

Seasonal farmworkers also work in agriculture, but live in one community year-round (2).
