Abstract
The living and working conditions of migrant agricultural workers are described. These conditions include long hours with low wages, deplorable housing and unsafe and unsanitary health conditions. Migrant workers have been expressly excluded or only minimally included in all benefits enacted by state and federal laws. Action by the workers to improve conditions is deterred by their fear of reprisals. Solutions are reiterated to improve the lot of the migrant worker: redefinition of the term migrant, workmen's compensation and minimum wage laws and the National Labor Relations Act, reduction of foreign labor, and a national compulsory housing code to cover migrant housing.
