Labor shortage causes farm worker wage increase

May 14, 2013 12:00:00 AM PDT
Growers in the San Joaquin Valley are increasing wages for farm workers.

The wages are increasing because farmers are worried they won't have enough workers for their harvest season.

Reports say growers are offering up to $10 an hour. That's more than a $1.50 higher than last year.

Experts say the labor shortage is related to increased border security.
