Greco, Stephen R.; And Others
Living and working conditions of the migrant farm worker were investigated to develop corrective legislation and arouse sympathetic public opinion. The report (1) describes characteristics of migrant farm workers and families, (2) itemizes migrant health projects in existence, (3) narrates observations of tours to migrant labor camps, (4) reports public hearings, (5) itemizes bills introduced concerning migrant laborers, (6) contains reports from the Department of Social Welfare, State Education Department and the State Council of Churches, and (7) summarizes committee activities and accomplishments. Findings showed migrant worker families to be living under conditions which equated in some instances the worst city slums. Recommendations include changes in legislation to (1) extend present codes to smaller camps and year-around laborers, (2) expand the Child Welfare Centers, (3) amend the minimum wage law to include agricultural workers, and (4) include farm laborers under insurance programs.
