RI Grows Mailer - Jobs

Myth: Few seasonal jobs and no benefits
RIGrows Truth: 88 full time, year-round jobs with benefits and profit sharing

According to this video from RI Grows, 77 of those positions will be for farm hand roles and will offer a path to citizenship. These jobs do not seem to be intended for Exeter residents and shouldn’t be positioned as helping local job seekers.
This isn’t a critique of immigration and providing paths to citizenship. It is a criticism of RI Grow’s suggestion that this project improves the local job market.
