Florida has more H-2A jobs certified than any other state. WHD found that Arcadia-area FLCs Benjamin M. Ramirez Harvesting Inc, AO Harvesting LLC and Gustavo Cisneros Harvesting Inc did not pay 123 H-2A workers for at least three-fourths of their contracts and ordered them to pay $72,600 in back wages. The three FLCs used CCH Bookkeeping as their agent to obtain H-2A workers, and harvested citrus for Alico.
Florida H-2A job offers for 2022 must guarantee at least $12.08 an hour, but many harvesting jobs pay piece rate wages. Rodriguez Citrus Harvesting of Immokalee offered piece rates of $1 per 90-pound field box to pick Valencia oranges, with an 8.7 box per hour minimum productivity standard so that workers earned at least the $12.41 minimum wage guarantee.
