Meet Juan Garcia
Mexican workers in USA. From California federation of teachers.org
¨My typical Juan Garcia knows no boundary. He does most of the manual labor of the Southwest, and unless the quota bars him, he will soon be standing beside the wheels in every industrial plant, working on every section of the railroads, and bending in toil on every farm. He is accomplishing a labor penetration of the United States.¨
