AFBF: vaccine mandates for ag workers will cause grocery shortages to get worse

Ground support is growing for the convoy of Canadian truckers protesting vaccine mandates.

Videos on social media show hundreds of peopling lining the highways as truckers make their way to Ottawa. They lost their essential worker status this week; their GoFundMe page has raised more than $4 million dollars.

Those vaccine mandates are expected to add to supply chain troubles. The requirement includes essential workers, which could take a toll on ag labor and the shipping industry.

The American Farm Bureau says that Homeland Security gave farmers and ranchers no time to prepare.

AFBF Congressional Relations Director, Allison Crittenden spoke with RFD-TV’s own Janet Adkison on the ripple effects the requirements are having, the impact on farm workers, and how the industry can cope.
