Researchers discuss treatment of immigrant dairy farmworkers in the state


This week on Newsmakers, Dan talks with the authors of a new study, entitled "Milked: Immigrant Dairy Farmworkers in New York State.”

The researchers found these undocumented Mexican and Central Americans work extremely long hours for very low pay in often dangerous and unhealthy conditions. 

The guests are Gretchen Purser, an assistant professor of sociology at Syracuse University's Maxwell School, and Rebecca Fuentes, a lead organizer with the workers' center of Central New York.
