By Oregon Farm Bureau,
A 30%+ minimum wage increase. A paid sick leave law that’s unworkable for farmers. Legislation that would increase fuel and energy costs. Bills that would allow a patchwork of local ag regulations.
Put them together and it’s a harrowing game of FarmCrush where Oregon farmers and ranchers are the big losers. Tell legislators not to play FarmCursh and help OFB explain the cumulative effect that more and more expensive regulations will have on Oregon agriculture.
