“They come from the South in buses, planes (mainly the Puerto Ricans), their own cars, and various conveyances operated by the entrpreneurs who organize the gangs to come up to the fields every year. They are largely under the supervision of the organizer, and their fortunes rise and fall according to how well he manages to utilize the migrant labor system and what kind of season it is. The system gives them even less sense of control of their lives...” From the “The New Nomads,” by guest editor, Mary Arnold Twining.
