Migrant Programs in Wisconsin and Ohio.
Vega, Jaime I., Ed.; And Others
Compiled for use by agencies working with migrant and seasonal farmworkers, this directory lists programs and services available to these farmworkers during their stay in Ohio and Wisconsin. Data were obtained from Federal, State, and local agencies in each State. Special emphasis was placed on information and data current as of summer 1973. Information given for each county in the State pertains to: (1) programs, (2) agencies which may assist migrants, (3) crops and work periods, (4) migrant population and wages, and (5) labor camps. Programs listed provide educational, health, legal, and job placement services to migrant workers. Some of the listings of organizations, programs, or agencies may contain some obsolete information due to their: instability; being subject to change as new needs, priorities, and objectives appear; or as operating funds expire. A synopsis of Ohio and Federal laws relevant to migrant and seasonal farmworkers is included. An annotated bibliography of National Migrant Information Clearinghouse publications is appended. (NQ)
