WASHINGTON- This week Governor Jay Inslee announced several relief funds that will help many agricultural workers in the state including undocumented immigrants.
The first fund is a $40 million fund for undocumented workers who can't receive unemployment compensation or stimulus checks due to their status. The second fund is a $3 million one through the Food Production Paid Leave Program. This fund will benefit food production workers regardless of their immigration status. Both funds are incentives for workers to stay home if they are sick without fears of not being able to provide for their families.
