Gallery: Migrant Workers Relocate After Being Fired by Embattled Farmer in Owasco

Farmer Joe Tidd fired several migrant workers after the town of Owasco condemned the worker's living quarters at Tidd's Melrose Farm in Owasco. The action prompted the Workers' Center of Central New York to get involved to help the workers find housing and new employment in a neighboring state.
