Brooklyn, NY – “New York family farms and their employees will suffer a serious economic blow thanks to a shortsighted decision by the Democrat-controlled Farm Laborers Wage Board yesterday. Family-owned agricultural businesses in New York have been reeling for years from overregulation, oppressively high taxation — including the Death Tax, which forces surviving family members to sell land to pay Albany and Washington following the death of loved ones — and now this. These family farms work on incredibly tight margins, competing with agricultural competitors from across the hemisphere. This decision will put a lot of people out of work — in the false name of progress. New York strikes again.”
