Thank you for visiting the Texas Workforce Commissionís agriculture employer wage survey website. The Texas Workforce Commission administers surveys of wages and working conditions in Texas agriculture to assist the U.S. Department of Labor in administering federal programs, including a visa program for agricultural labor.



Importance of Participation


The generous participation of employers ensures that the U.S. Department of Laborís rules and policies reflect the labor market in Texas agriculture, ensuring fairness to all employers. Without your participation, these surveys would not accurately reflect the economic and social conditions in your industry. If you are asked to participate in one of our surveys, please say "Yes".
