OR Lawmakers Approve Farm Worker Overtime Bill

(Salem, OR) -- Farm workers in Oregon will be paid overtime under a bill that's on its way to the Governor. The bill passed on a party-line vote. It phases in overtime requirements over four years. A tax credit would be available to small farmers that will help cover some of the higher salary costs. Farmers say it'll result in more automation and some farmers will have to sell their farms to larger corporations.
