The eight-chapter book, The Farm Labor Problem, reviews farm labor demand, supply, labor market equilibrium, immigration, and self-help union and NGO efforts to improve farm wages and conditions. It emphasizes the decline of Mexico-US migration that is raising US farm labor costs and prompting more labor-saving mechanization.
The book includes many examples to illustrate how farmers make profit-maximizing decisions, workers maximize their welfare, and the challenges involved in matching labor demand and supply across time and space.
