2022 AmericanHort Labor Survey
AmericanHort
2022 Labor Survey
AmericanHort is partnering with University of California-Davis, and Arizona State University on a Nursery and Greenhouse Employment Survey, which we invite you to complete.

The purpose of this survey is to collect information about how growers are adapting to ongoing labor challenges. The data and insights from the study will be used to inform participants, leaders, and policymakers about how workforce challenges are affecting nursery and greenhouse operations throughout the country. Survey results will be a very important tool for our industry advocacy efforts. The findings will help us educate key decision influencers in Congress and the administration on our industry’s ongoing workforce challenges, like employee shortages, turnover, and gaps in access to worker visa programs. Our goal? Solutions to help address these challenges.
