Migrant and Seasonal Farmworkers
Migrant and Seasonal Farmworkers (MSFWs) travel to South Carolina each year to help cultivate and harvest crops in various regions of the state. Because this population often faces barriers to employment, DEW provides intensive services to MSFWs through a bilingual, statewide program.
MSFW Outreach Workers and Rural Manpower Coordinators identify and contact individuals that are not being reached through everyday services at local SC Works centers.
To discuss your rights as a MSFW or to report unlawful conditions, call the farmworker toll-free helpline at 1-877-244-4081. Services are available in both English and Spanish and callers may choose to remain anonymous.
The below links provide more information about your rights and the laws that protect them.
