Working In The Shadows; California's undocumented migrant farmworkers | RG_HiRes_ZumaNZ8V2970.jpg
As dawn breaks over Huron, the workday begins. Twice each year, when lettuce is harvested in the area, the population doubles and Huron becomes a Grand Central terminal for the migrant workforce. Laborers gather in the main street where buses line up to take them to the fields. Some are on contract, but many just hope for a shift each day. Gang members know that workers without bank accounts carry large amounts of cash, and robberies are common.
