It appears that concerns about a labor shortage for the cherry harvest are not proving to be a problem, at least not in Chelan County. The manager of the State-run migrant labor camp at Monitor says the facility is full with 348 workers. He talked with NCWLIFE’s Steve Hair about the facility and provided us with an update on how many workers are housed there during this year’s harvest and its uncertain future.
We also spoke with Jesus Martinez who with his family migrates each year north from California to pick cherries in NCW . . .
The labor camp is also used by growers during the pear and apple harvest.
