Summary and Info
Why do farm workers earn less and have a lower status than blue-collar employees in comparable jobs? Robert J. Thomas answers this question through a multi-method study of agricultural work and labor markets. Fieldwork as a lettuce harvester provides valuable insights from the perspective of undocumented immigrants. This is a compelling analysis of how the vulnerability of non-citizens and women workers augments managerial control.
