Michigan Housing Report: A Report of a Study Jointly Undertaken by the Migrant Research Project and the United Migrants for Opportunity, Inc.
Manpower Evaluation and Development Inst. Washington, DC. Migrant Research Project.
It is estimated that between 50,000 and 100,000 migrants annually go to Michigan in search of agricultural employment. Approximately 3,100 camps located through the state provide housing for these workers. Prior to the present study, the public had already been made aware of the squalid conditions in which migrants live. The purpose of this study was to document those aspects of migrant housing which could be improved by more rigorous enforcement of existing laws and regulations. Included in the document are explanations of (1) the survey method used in the study, (2) criteria for evaluating housing conditions, and (3) Federal and state laws and regulations for agricultural labor camps. Also included are tables of statistics. (EJ)
