Ouvriers migrants, Fresno, Californie.
“This photo was taken at about 4:30 in the morning in Fresno, California. The workers, most of them undocumented Oaxacan immigrants, are being transported on a farm labor bus to pick raisin grapes, one of the most grueling of all farm labor jobs. The bus journey through town took almost two hours: some tried to continue sleeping, but they would be awakened each time a new group of workers boarded. The man driving is their boss, a farm labor contractor. He paid them 21 cents per bucket and then deducted six dollars a day for the bus ride and another six dollars for lunch. Some workers would return home with less than 20 dollars after working a twelve hour day.”
