MIGRATORY LABOR IN COLORADO. PROGRESS REPORT.
SIMPSON, RAY; AND OTHERS
DEVELOPMENTS, FROM 1950 THROUGH 1960, ARE TRACED CONCERNING MIGRATORY LABOR IN COLORADO IN THE AREAS OF EMPLOYMENT, WAGE RATES, MINIMUM WAGE LEGISLATION, EMPLOYMENT OF MEXICAN NATIONALS, EDUCATION, HEALTH, HOUSING, SANITATION, WELFARE, UNEMPLOYMENT COMPENSATION, WORKMEN'S COMPENSATION COVERAGE, AND THE LICENSING AND REGULATION OF LABOR CONTRACTORS AND CREW LEADERS. FUNDING AND ENFORCEMENT OF REGULATIONS ARE THE MAJOR OBSTACLES TO FULFILLMENT OF GOALS FOR IMPROVING THE LIVING, TRAVELING, AND WORKING CONDITIONS OF THE MIGRANT. INTERSTATE PROGRAMS HAVE TO BE WORKED OUT BEFORE THE PROGRAM WITHIN A STATE CAN FUNCTION AT ITS BEST. FIELD STUDIES AND REGIONAL MEETINGS ARE PLANNED TO PROVIDE ADDITIONAL INFORMATION TOWARD SOLUTION OF PROBLEMS INVOLVED. IT WAS RECOMMENDED THAT THE PRESENT SUMMER SCHOOL PROGRAM FOR MIGRANT CHILDREN BE EXPANDED, THAT FINANCING CONTINUE TO BE DRAWN FROM THE CONTINGENCY FUND OF THE PUBLIC SCHOOL FOUNDATION, THAT STATUTES WHICH AUTHORIZED THE STATE BOARD OF HEALTH TO PERFORM SPECIFIC FUNCTIONS AND PROMULGATE RULES AND REGULATIONS, ESPECIALLY WITH RESPECT TO LABOR CAMPS AND SANITATION, BE REVISED TO GIVE ADEQUATE REGULATORY AND ENFORCEMENT POWERS, AND THAT THE EMPLOYMENT OF MEXICAN NATIONALS BE STUDIED FURTHER, WITH GREATER EFFORT DIRECTED AT EMPLOYING DOMESTIC INTERSTATE AND INTRASTATE MIGRANTS WHENEVER POSSIBLE. LEGISLATIVE DEVELOPMENTS ARE APPENDED, BILL BY BILL. TABLES SHOW WAGES PAID, AND WELFARE EXPENDITURES.
