Between 1-2%AnswerThere are more people locked up in prisons in the U.S. than there are farmers. AnswerThe farming population is broken-up into two or more categories. There are farm owners, as well as their children. And there are farm workers. Perhaps quite a number of farm owners made the transition to farm workers, as farm mangers, invoved in managing the machinery and production of a modern farm. But what would seem to be increasingly the most significant group of farm workers are migrant laborers. It seems unlikely that if as a nation, America, that is, we are unwilling to manage migrant laboring activity that we would be able to measure such activity and properly present a number such as two percent without explanation as to how such figure is derived. If two percent were representing the whole working population, then perhaps the number of farm owners and full-time farm managers, what comes to mind when we think of the word, "farmer, is perhaps a quarter of a percent of the U.S. population, rather than two percent. Conversely, pehaps 16% of people in America are quietly engaged in farm labor, by this same possibly broken measure.
