"I think farmers work hard for little pay," said farm worker Jesus Figeroa.
Figeroa has been a farm worker for over 40 years, and he says while most of those years he was able to live comfortably on his paycheck, now he fears the worse if lawmakers get their way.
"We'll never make it with that kind of money," said Figeroa.
Many farm workers worry that the approval of assembly bill may result in at least a 20% pay cut in the income for most farm workers during peak season.
" Now my workers are working 54 hours a week. They're going to be cut down to 40 hours a week and then I'm going to lay them off and hire other people to take that slack," said local farmer, Keith Neilmeier.
It isn't just farmers and their workers effected by all of this; consumers would feel the pinch too.
" Instead of growing a peach, I may not grow those peaches anymore, and you're going to pay more for them," said Neilmeier.
Which opens up the possibility of importing produce from other states.
" It's only reasonable that if labor cost are increased by 10% then there is an impact on consume, or the possibility of out sourcing," said Berry Bedwell of California Grape & Tree Fruit League.
Some farmers say if this bill passes they'll find a way to figure it all out. Like hiring workers from other farmers in the system.
" There's no rule on how many hours a guy can work or how many jobs you can have, it's only how many hours they can work for one employer," said Neilmeier.
