Agricultural Labor Since 1930 and Organic Farming Tulane University professor Jana Lipman taught a class on agricultural labor in the United States since 1930 and the rise of organic farming. She described the “bracero” program which brought temporary workers from Mexico in the 1940s and 50s, as well as farm workers strikes under leaders such as César Chávez. She argued that despite the rise in consumer awareness relating to organic food, worker conditions are not always considered a factor in what people buy. close
