The Demand for Immigrant Workers: Labor Scarcity or Social Control?
Jenkins, J. Craig
International Migration Review, v12 n4 p514-35 Win 1978, 78
This article analyzes the two perspectives, social control and labor scarcity. Immigrant workers are argued to be tied to social control functions in the peripheral sectors of the United States economy. The historical experience of farm workers in southwestern agriculture is drawn upon to illustrate the argument. (Author/EB)
