Seasonal and migrant agricultural workers: a neglected work force.
AAOHN J 2004 Sep; 52(9):383-390

There are unique challenges related to this endeavor, and the authors have attempted to explain some of the issues that have not been previously discussed in a forthright manner. In doing so, it is likely that some controversy related to the topic has been introduced.
