Quentin Antes: Valley farmers pay more than $8 an hour

Published: 9/22/2021 12:32:04 PM

Someone needs to fact check columnist Bill Newman before he creates a false article. (“State’s farmworkers deserve better,” Sept. 11)As a farmer, I know dozens of farmers in the Valley. Not one pays $8 an hour. Everyone pays over $12 and up to $18 an hour.

Articles like this are misleading, and lead to people belief in “fake news.” Very disappointed, but not surprised, by his agenda driven article with no facts. The paper should require better.
