dc.description.abstractThe main focus of this thesis is on those workers who have not left the migrant stream, because those who do seek aid have taken the first step in the process of assimilation into our society; they have made the hard decision to start new lives. First, in order to develop an awareness of the relationship between agricultural laborers, agribusiness and the government, a brief history is presented. Second, general characteristics of the laborers are given so that the reader may have a basic understanding of this subculture. Third, for a total awareness of the lives of agricultural workers, specific problems are examined, with an emphasis on the education of Mexican-American migrant children. Finally, this thesis will present the three factors that are instrumental in alleviate these problems: legislation, unionization and private and public agencies.en_US
