MIGRATORY LABOR IN WISCONSIN AGRICULTURE.
ROSE, A. THOMAS
A SERIES OF CHARTS RELATED TO MIGRATORY WORKERS IN WISCONSIN IS PRESENTED. THE TABLES DEPICT THE SEASONAL AGRICULTURAL AND FOOD PROCESSING EMPLOYMENT TIMETABLE OF MAJOR CROP ACTIVITIES, UTILIZATION OF MIGRANT WORKERS IN SUCH ACTIVITIES, MIGRANT WORKERS REGISTERED BY DISTRICT OFFICES, STATE OF RESIDENCE, STATE OF LAST EMPLOYMENT, AND STATE OF NEXT EMPLOYMENT, NUMBER OF SCHEDULED WORKERS REPORTING AND FAILING TO REPORT, AND CHARACTERISTICS OF MIGRANT WORKERS. THE SEASONAL LABOR FORCE BEGINS IN MAY AND CONTINUES THROUGH THE SUMMER. SPANISH-SPEAKING WORKERS IN FAMILY GROUPS MAKE UP THE BULK OF THE SEASONAL MIGRATORY LABOR FORCE. THEY MIGRATE LONG DISTANCES AND USUALLY COME FROM PREVIOUS EMPLOYMENT BEFORE ENTERING WISCONSIN. COOPERATION IS NEEDED FROM EMPLOYMENT SERVICE AGENCIES TO BRING WORKERS AND EMPLOYERS TOGETHER. THERE IS NO GUARANTEE THAT THOSE WHO MAKE PRESEASON COMMITMENTS WILL KEEP THEM, BUT RELIABILITY IS BETTER THAN EXPECTED. ALL SEASON WORKERS ARE REQUIRED TO REGISTER. WORKERS USUALLY TRAVEL IN SINGLE FAMILY UNITS OR CREWS.
