What is a Migrant Farm Worker?
The Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) defines a migrant farm worker as “a migratory agricultural worker, whose principal employment is in agriculture on a seasonal basis, who has been so employed within the last twenty-four months, and who establishes for the purposes of such employment a temporary abode.”
