Texas Migrant Labor, 1974 Annual Report.
Good Neighbor Commission of Texas, Austin.
Organized under a 1943 Federal grant and later funded by legislative appropriations, the Good Neighbor Commission of Texas coordinates the work of Federal, State, and local government units endeavoring to improve the travel, living, and working conditions of Texas migrant farmworkers and their families. The 1974 annual report chronicles the facts, conditions, and circumstances which focus on the socioeconomic plight of migrant families. An overview of the Texas migrant laborer briefly describes the migrant, his characteristics and background, and the circumstances under which he works and lives. The report also discusses Texas agriculture and migrant labor, alien labor and immigration, and various selected agencies and programs. Current developments in education, housing, health, and employment are also presented. The present status of previous recommendations is given along with new recommendations for consideration by State or Federal authorities, some of which will require legislative action, while others will require administrative directives, and in some cases redirection of agency programs.
