Viviendas de Trabajadores Migrantes: Resultados de Encuestas del Centro-Sur de Minnesota [Migrant Worker Housing Survey Results from South Central Minnesota.]

Author: 
Ziebarth, Ann, and Jaehyun Byun.

Each year, thousands of migrant Latino farmworkers journey from the Southwestern United States, Northern Mexico and Latin America to Minnesota in order to make a living in picking and processing agricultural crop, and to the work in the ornamental plant industry. Their labor is clearly a vital component of Minnesota's agricultural economy. These workers must navigate perilous terrain in search for housing during the working season. This report blends quantitative and qualitative findings to reflect the tensions that arise between an economic sector that relies heavily upon the work of migrants which fails to provide them with resources that will secure adequate provisions to meet basic human needs. Also included is the analysis of the survey results of 282 migrant farmworkers.
