Max Armstrong shares how the farm labor problem is creating missed opportunities for many farms

Max Armstrong looks into the issue of the farm labor problem, which is causing problems with lost opportunities for fresh fruit and vegetable exports. These challenges are causing farms to look toward more automation too. One part of the problem is the lack of a consistent immigration policy.
