Who Are Ohio's Migrants?
Hintz, Joy; Mecartney, John
Identifying and defining Ohio's migrant population, the document also seeks to destroy many of the myths that exist about migrant workers. The survey, made in September 1972, found that 90% of the state's 35,000 workers were Spanish speaking. The document also gives information on migrant recruitment, crew leaders, income, housing, crops, religion, bilingualism, health, Mexican immigrants, and the migrant's contributions to the economy. Ten misconceptions about migrant life are corrected, such as beliefs that "migrants are carefree and like to travel" and "migrants are adequately protected by state and Federal labor laws". (KM)
