Barnes, Robert F.
Effort is made to explain some of the difficulties Mexican immigrant families face in becoming acculturated. Mexican traditions and customs, and changes encountered in the United States are reviewed indicating the effect of migration on the family unit. Discussion includes family life in Mexico with emphasis on the status of Mexican women, family life in a different culture, the Mexican in U.S. and California agriculture, the California farm labor situation, and legislation affecting the farm worker. Employment opportunities, health and welfare services, fringe benefits, and housing are topics considered in presenting present and future needs of California's farm workers. Educational problems and educational needs of the Mexican American are pointed out in concluding sections. (SW)
