Abstract: In Spain and in the United States domestic farm laborers are not available in sufficient numbers during peak harvest seasons. Therefore, intensive farm production has a dependence on immigrant workers, mainly laborers who lack proper documentation to legally reside or work. Moreover increases in the labor supply, prompted by continued unauthorized entries and employment has adversely affected the wages and working conditions in the farming sector, speeding the exit of local workers from agriculture. As a result, immigrant farm workers suffer from labor irregularity, underemployment and social isolation. This paper analyses comparatively the social situation of Mexican' farm workers employed in US agriculture and Moroccan workers engaged in the Spanish farming sector.
