The California Migrant Farm Worker, His Family, and the Rural Community.
Barnes, Robert F.; And Others
The provision of housing facilities and child day-care centers for migrant workers has in many cases produced problems among migrant workers and the communities concerned. The reactions of both groups have ranged from generally positive to highly negative. This monograph presents the findings of an exploratory study conducted during the first year of a proposed three-year study which will attempt to identify, analyze, and understand the various divergent perspectives of migrants and the rural communities in which they are found. Data are presented on the attitudes of the communities in which migrant housing facilities are to be placed, including demographic information, attitudes toward the facility and migrant families, and factors affecting these attitudes. Data are also given on migrant workers and the day-care centers provided by the Office of Economic Opportunity. (DK)
