(Salem, OR) -- Many agricultural workers in Oregon live in poverty and lack affordable housing. Oregon Housing and Community Services hired Stamberg Outreach Consulting to conduct a study that found average farmworkers make between 20-thousand and 25-thousand dollars a year. That's under 37-percent of the median family income. Oregon has over 100-thousand agricultural workers. The study recommends increasing farmworker income, providing rental assistance, increasing the supply of affordable housing, and creating a program that helps farmworkers file rental applications or mortgages.
