Farmworker advocates to rally in Albany

Posted: Updated:
ALBANY, N.Y. -

Advocates for farmworkers in New York are rallying today at the state Capitol.

They're supporting legislation that would extend labor rights and protections for farmworkers in the state. It would grant collective bargaining rights, along with new rights to earn overtime pay.

But some farmers say it would increase costs for them in an already financially unstable business.
