Survey finds farm confidence still faltering
The Farm Bureau issued the following statement in response to the Agriculture Department’s farm bill:
The report released t강릉출장안마his week by the Department of Agriculture makes clear that the U.S. farm workforce remains below capacity. It finds that fewer than 12.9 percent of American farms are in “full employment,” meaning more than 15,000 farms are “unprofitable and the employees are employed on temporary or intermittent employment.”
Yet that number is higher than the 13.6 percent in 2009 and has declined since 1998.
According to the report, more than one-quarter of American farmers are “overbooked” — meaning they need more employees to deliver the farm-related products and services they make.
The government does not know precisely how much this means and that figure was likely inflated by the large number of temporary workers hired duri에볼루션 카지노ng the recession. The report also includes a figure of 22 million farms that could have been closed but couldn’t because the jobs weren’t created because they weren’t created on time or with enough workers.
But according to the report, when people aren’t actually working for farms the U.S. economy doesn’t recover because there’s little incentive for farm jobs to be created and that leads to depressed farm economic growth, falling exports and depressed labor force participation.
A recent report found that while Americans lost their jobs from the Great Recession, farm jobs haven’t recovered from the crisis or declined at the slowest rate in decades.
According to the Farm Service Association, there are more than 1 million private agricultural businesses employing 150,000 people in the U.S. today.
The report also finds that in 2008, 13,928 farming jobs were found that would not have existed had more Americans been employed, or had fewer permanent farm jobs left for younger workers. The vast majority of the farms that had lost these jobs were located in the Northeast.
One of the report’s researchers, Bruce Mielz, said the numbers in the report aren’t “particularly surprising” and should be considered the industry’s normal working year.
“It looks like we’re doing pretty well for the entire agricultural sector,” he said. “It also doesn’t surprise me in the least if we have some economic recovery in the agricultural industry. The bottom line in the industry is that a lot of what [farmers ar여주안마e] seeing and paying for is not coming back to them. They’ve been investing long-term in themselves and have never invested at a time when the
