“Children Working in the Field”s is one of the themes for Farmworker Awareness Week 2013. Children of migrant farmworkers begin working in the fields at very young ages. They work extremely long hours under very dangerous conditions. To learn more about this issue you can visit: afop.org, ncfield.org, thesame.ca
