Migrant Workers Bogg County is a rural area whose residents rely on farming for income. The most popular crop in Bogg County is tobacco, a very labor-intensive plant. To save money, many farmers employ Hispanic migrant farmworkers who come to the county looking for work. Migrant farmworkers are cheaper to employ than other farmworkers because many of them are illegal immigrants who cannot afford to complain about the low wages.
