Abstract

Immigrant farm workers who once shuttled in and out of the United States are settling in the areas in which they
work, changing the face of their communities. Settlement in Ventura county has been associated in the 1990s with low earnings, encouraging farm workers to find nonfarm jobs, raising questions about how to get replacement workers.
