As we transition from winter to spring, thousands of men and women who are seasonal workers in the U.S., are pouring across from the San Ysidro Port of Entry to San Diego, California to work in plants, farms, and fields in the United States.
These seasonal workers can work in the U.S. due to being part of the U.S. Seasonal Worker Program, which allows them to work legally in the U.S. with H-2A visas.
Seasonal workers are picked up crossing the San Ysidro Port of Entry and are transported to their work via coach buses.
Many workers have to overcome different struggles such as leaving their family in their home countries and coming to the U.S. with the hopes of working and accomplishing something to take back to their home countries.
Approximately 318,000 H-2A visas were issued to seasonal workers in 2021 and employers are mandated to pay workers at least a state-specific minimum wage.
