Importing poverty? : immigration and the changing face of rural America by Philip L Martin( Book )

11 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and held by 418 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

American agriculture employs some 2.5 million workers during a typical year, most for fewer than six months. Three fourths of these farm workers are immigrants, half are unauthorized, and most will leave seasonal farm work within a decade. What do these statistics mean for farmers, for laborers, for rural America? This book addresses the question by reviewing what is happening on farms and in the towns and cities where immigrant farm workers settle with their families. Philip Martin finds that the business-labor model that has evolved in rural America is neither desirable nor sustainable. He proposes regularizing U.S. farm workers and rationalizing the farm labor market, an approach that will help American farmers stay globally competitive while also improving conditions for farm workers

Poverty amid prosperity : immigration and the changing face of rural California by J. Edward Taylor( Book )

4 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book synthesizes the views of California's preeminent rural development researchers on how immigration is transforming rural California communities. It draws on papers presented at two conferences held in Asilomar and Riverside (California) in 1995 and 1996. Conference participants were asked to consider whether rural poverty is being re-created through immigration and what is likely to happen to poor rural residents and their children if poverty increases. The book emphasizes four themes. First, it is unlikely that the level and composition of immigration from Mexico will change in the near future. Second, the children of farmworkers raised and educated in the United States avoid farm work, and farmworkers move on as quickly as possible to more stable and higher-paying jobs. Communities and migrant assistance programs try to provide farmworkers and their children with the education to move into nonfarm jobs, but these integration efforts also reinforce farmers' assertions that U.S. workers will not do farm work and the only option is continued immigration. Third, unlike the one-to-one relationship between child population growth and school enrollment, the rate at which poor rural people apply for and receive public assistance is increasing more slowly than their numbers. Fourth, the binational labor market is so well established between rural Mexico and rural California that the United States must take an interest in rural Mexico and its development. The book is organized into three parts: history and impacts of immigration in the rural United States and immigration patterns in California; key findings from seven in-depth studies of rural California towns; and public policies on immigration and integration. The bulk of the references to migrant education occur on pages 70-78. (Contains 108 references, 9 data tables and figures, and an index.) (sv)

The new rural poverty : agriculture & immigration in California by Philip L Martin( Book )

7 editions published between 2006 and 2012 in English and held by 224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Immigration is changing the face of rural America, from Florida to Washington and from Maine to California. Migrants arrive, many from Mexico, to fill jobs on farms and in farm-related industries, usually at earnings below the poverty. Leaders of rural industries are adamant that a steady influx of foreign workers is necessary for economic survival. But the integration of these newcomers is uneven: many immigrants achieve some measure of the American dream, but others find persistent poverty, overcrowded housing, and crime. The New Rural Poverty examines the effect of rural immigration on inla

The endless quest : helping America's farm workers by Philip L Martin( Book )

6 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Twelve federal migrant programs currently provide over $600 million annually to assist migrant and seasonal farmworkers and their families. Four programs (the Migrant Education Program, Migrant Head Start, Migrant Health, and job training and ancillary services under the Job Training Partnership Act) account for 90 percent of federal migrant assistance funds. Yet, these programs are engaged in a Sisyphean task because they focus on helping individuals attain a better life (outside the fields) but do nothing to reform farm labor-market conditions. This book describes the evolution and current operations of the four major migrant programs, and offers suggestions for three tiers of reform. Introductory chapters provide a history of the role of the migrant worker in U.S. agriculture, and of public policy that has perpetuated the menial conditions of the farm labor market. Program descriptions cover initial and current objectives, definition of target population, eligibility criteria, program operations, funding, current issues, and coordination with other programs. Three levels of reform are recommended: (1) over the short term, improving program coordination at the national level; (2) over the medium term, improving data on farmworkers by requiring interagency agreement on core definitions and clear assignment to a single agency of data collection responsibility; and (3) over the longer term, deliberately creating public policy that would improve conditions for migrant workers. The most effective policy step would be reducing the number of workers competing for farm jobs through enforcement of immigration and labor laws. Appendices contain the text of recommendations by the Administrative Conference of the United States on migrant program coordination and data collection; a directory of organizations and federal programs providing migrant services; data on farmworker wages, employment, and production; and a glossary of acronyms. This book contains an index and many data tables and figures. (Sv)

The U.S. produce industry and labor : facing the future in a global economy by Linda Calvin( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fruit and vegetable production is a labor-intensive process, and over half of the hired workers employed by growers are believed to be unauthorized immigrants. Reforms to immigration laws, if they reduce the labor supply, may increase the cost of farm labor. The authors of this report assess how particular fruit and vegetable commodities might adjust if labor rates increased. Analysis of case studies suggests a range of possible adjustment scenarios, including increased mechanization for some crops, reduced U.S. output for a few crops, and increased use of labor aids to improve labor productivity for others
